We offered this class in March before the world stopped spinning and it was so much fun. Now that we have a new format, let’s do it again so that all of you long distance beady friends can join us without a plane ticket. Teresa Gorecki has designed a tour-de-force of techniques. Bead embroidery techniques combined with beadweaving, create layers and layers of texture.
Ruth’s Garden by Teresa Gorecki, October 15 & 16, 11-4 pm on Zoom!
This piece brings together elements of bead weaving, bead embroidery and a modern version of a classic embroidery technique. Classic Peyote and modified Complex Netting combine to create gorgeous bezels for our rivoli and chaton crystals. Stump work embroidery combined with goldwork creates 3D bead embroidered leaves. You will learn how to layer and create a beautiful dimensional piece.
All of the materials in this piece are of the highest quality. We will combine sterling opal. 24k gold beads. Palladium beads. Custom coated and vintage swarovski crystals. Each set of Opals has an individually curated color pallet. Sterling Opals are gorgeous man-made opals. They have lots of color and depth. No two are alike. You will get to select your own opals at the start of class. We have worked to provide the highest quality materials at the best price point possible.
Create the necklace as shown or work with Teresa to morph this garden into one of your very own.
This class is for intermediate to advanced beaders. Due to the magical nature of sterling opals we have a limited number of kits availabe.
