Peyote Beaded Bracelet and Necklace with Diane Kribs-Mays

$80 Registration Fee, Includes Supplies.

To register call 906-228-0472.

In this four-part workshop, using peyote stitch, students will make a dimensional glass bead bracelet and necklace. Peyote stitch is the most popular bead stitch because it creates finely stitched beadwork that feels and acts like fabric.

In order to create the fabric feel, you will be working with very small beads. If needed, bring magnifying glasses or light with magnifier and extension cord.

The registration fee includes all needed supplies - so just bring a spirit of excitement and extra light or magnification if needed and enjoy creating TWO pieces of wearable art!
