Whimsical Animal Necklace

Level II – This class is for those who have taken at least one class in the medium. Students should be comfortable with the basics of how to use and manipulate the medium.

Meow, hoot, woof! The possibilities are many when it comes to the Peyote stitch. Why not challenge your peyote skills to stitch up a whimsical cat, dog, or owl mini pouch necklace? This particular odd count tubular peyote method starts by building both sides of the pouch from the bottom up, from one line of strung beads. In addition, learn the twisted herringbone stitch to make a fun strap to complete the necklace. Ears, feet, and tails can be added for more details, as well as face design. Larger beads and metal findings can also be added if so desired. There is a material fee of $20 due to the instructor on the first day of class.
