About the Event
Description: Split Personality
Why Split Personality? Well, I have combined some bead weaving and bead embroidery for several years. I’ve taught several classes that combined the two types of beading including at Bead and Button. After my husband passed, I was kind of hung up creating for a long time. Then when I started making Regina Payne’s Mountain Girl over and over, it stimulated my creative juices and I made my first real “Split Personality” design. I thought about it and it seemed a natural transition from mostly bead weaving to the combination as sort of my before and after Jack died creative soul. I had a life with him before followed by a different life after. So I have a split personality in that way for me and for my art.
The focal and 1/2 the bracelet is bead embroidery. The other 1/2 of the bracelet is bead woven using Hubble stitch and embellished with pearls. The design makes it easily adjustable to various wrist sizes. Stitches include basic bead embroidery and a layered woven design. The bezel around the cabochon is peyote. Herringbone toggle and loop for the finish. Suitable for intermediate level beaders peyote knowledge required, backstitch and brick stitch edge knowledge will be helpful for the embroidery. Herringbone knowledge will be helpful for the toggle but a 2 hole tube slide clasp is included in the kit.
Prerequisites: Peyote knowledge required, backstitch and brick stitch edge knowledge will be helpful for the embroidery. Herringbone knowledge will be helpful for the toggle but a 2 hole tube slide clasp is included in the kit.
