FLYING BUTTRESS with Charlene Abrams

Friday, April 18, 2014 - 10 am to 4 pm

Hone your cubic right angle weave skills (especially joining) as you work this fabulously architectural pendant with its swooping pointed arches reminiscent of flying buttresses. Faceted fire-polished beads and a few well-placed fringe beads add bursts of colour and texture to a piece that is already rich with detail. A substantial loop allows it to hang from a slim chain or a seed-beaded necklace with its ever-so-slightly fierce terminating spike pointing meekly towards your feet.

Skill level for this workshop is Intermediate to Advanced.

The cost of this workshop is $90.00 but can be combined for full days of workshops with Charlene for a discounted rate.

IKSITITO with Charlene Abrams

Saturday, April 19, 2014 - 10 am to 4 pm

A variety of shaped and round seed beads and fire-polished beads are combined with chatons and a dazzling rivoli to create a statement necklace with an eye-catching focal and alternating chained medallions, one of which conceals the clasp.

Students will work a variety of traditional as well as non-specific stitches to make the richly-layered focal centered around the rivoli, each chaton medallion will be worked separately and then joined from the center of the necklace towards the back, finally working the snap clasp to complete the necklace.

The skill level for this workshop is Intermediate.

The cost of this workshop is $90.00 but can be combined for full days of workshops with Charlene for a discounted rate.

OK, so you can't get enough, so...............
