Pod Rings! Handmade Beaded Jewelry with Vintage Marble Beads
In this exciting one day workshop students will learn the challenging stitch called CRAW, “cubic right-angle weave”, to accomplish a finished design, the “Pod Ring”. Marcole will first demonstrate the stitch, and students will follow, weaving their own bead-mesh in CRAW, to function as a strip for their ring.
In the second half of the class the instructor will demonstrate how to nestle a decorative sphere into a bead mesh to create a Pod. Finishing touches will follow, such as the rimming of a Pod. Marcole will provide students with PDF instructions files, not only for the current project, but also as a compendium to illustrate the many possibilities offered by this specific bead weaving technique. After this workshop, students will have the necessary tools to keep exploring CRAW, attempting more ambitious projects, according to their personal taste and capabilities.
