Beyond Beadery presents...
Created with cubic right angle weave, the faerie locket is a series of embellished diamonds which are combined into a sweet little box which opens to reveal a flower. The construction allows for a finial at each corner of the diamond shapes which gives you the opportunity for fanciful embellishments. The bottom drop is a custom made lamp work bead by Patti Lakinsmith. This piece will be kitted so that you can make your own color choices within the kit for embellishing, so each will be unique.

Mixed Beadia Explorations
Students will explore using mixed elements in creating a one-of-a-kind cuff. Beginning with an ironed-on image that can be hand colored if desired, and go crazy with fabrics, ribbons, cup chain, metals, floral elements and of course, beads! The introduction of a slide macramé closure finishes the project. This project could easily be completed as a pendant or neck piece if preferred.
Ghost Ranch Necklace
Georgia O’Keeffe is one of the most significant and intriguing artists of the twentieth century, known internationally for her boldly innovative art. Her distinct flowers, dramatic cityscapes, glowing landscapes, and images of bones against the stark desert sky are iconic and original contributions to American Modernism.
In this workshop students will choose a resin skull or flower for their focal piece. Various embroidery techniques will be used to incorporated patterned UtraSuede, large natural stones, floral beads, and the Heidi Tassel, making a unique piece honoring Georgia O’Keefe, one of the first women artists in the 20th century that dared to be different.
