Art Workshop: Infinity Beaded Pendant with Jill Erickson
October 13, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm$90
Perfect for beginners! Instructor Jill Erickson teaches you how to make your own pendant with aluminum wire and fill it with a seed bead mosaic. You’ll learn tips and tricks to master a no-stitch, no-grout, no-hassle technique to create a striking design with beads in your choice of colors. Jill provides an overview of color theory and how to plan the placement of your colors to achieve an ombre color blend effect that evokes an urban-boho vibe. You’ll knot a supple, leather cord to create an adjustable necklace for your pendant. Alternately, you can choose to affix a silicone necklace, or a pin-back if you prefer to wear your creation as a brooch.
