Join jewelry designer Leslie Rogalski as she shares five foundational seed bead techniques to help you get started beading beautiful jewelry! Dive in with the popular peyote stitch as you learn how to work flat even- and odd-count stitches and zip them up into quick and easy beaded beads. Then, learn how to start the brick stitch with a ladder and work back-to-front thread paths with ease.
Next, learn the basic herringbone stitch and then explore tubular techniques, expertly joining your ends to make a beautiful bangle. Moving on, master the right-angle weave and combine two separate pieces into a lovely, dimensional faux cubic pendant or bold bracelet. Finally, have fun with geometric patterns as you learn the square stitch, increasing and decreasing by one or two rows to make lovely stepped edge detailing and Leslie’s favorite ziggurat rings. Leslie will even show you how to create custom closures that flawlessly finish any piece! Click the link to see the video about this class.
