Beadweaving and bead embroidery come together for an extremely textured and highly embellished 'art cuff'. This could easily be changed into a pendant if a cuff isn't desired. The piece utilizes beautiful drops and glass pearls to create the flowers and then wonderful glass flowers and a variety of other beads complete the piece. I had such fun creating this!

Empress is a statement necklace that comprises various beaded elements using a variety of crystals as embellishment and focal points. The class will teach you to bead each element and how to connect them to a beautiful necklace or use each element in a different way as a bracelet or earring. The class requires a basic understanding of peyote and is sure to make a great impression. Just like an Empress!!

A winter halo, is a phenomenon that usually appears in conjunction with a full moon. It looks like a whitish ring, about 10 to 20 times the size of the moon, surrounding the moon. It is caused by the reflection of light from the full moon on the ice crystals floating in the clouds. Once in a while, if you are really lucky, a double halo can be seen surrounding the moon.
Winter Halo bracelet features large pearls surrounded by double halos created using Herringbone stitch. The Halos attach to peyote platforms embellished with crystals for light emitting sparkle. The bracelet band is made with peyote stitch and embellished with pearls. The closure for the bracelet is a bead slide Clasp.
