Shaping Your Beadwork: Christmas Star Earrings
- Learn a few simple shaping tricks to transform your peyote beadwork into a 3-dimensional star. During the class, you will make earrings using size 11/0 seed beads. This technique scales easily and can also be used to create colorful holiday ornaments (using 8/0 or 6/0 seed beads) or mini-stars to create a constellation using 15/0 seed beads.I usually suggest using 3 colors until you master the technique. However, if you prefer, choose one color that will make these stars a special accessory throughout the holiday season!
- Advanced Beginner level.
Bring: 11/0 seed beads (3 colors will make it easier to learn the technique but the star may be made with 1 color if preferred), 8/0 seed beads (to coordinate with the 11/0 beads), 10 4mm crystals (optional), beading thread, size 11 beading needle, findings to finish as earrings (jump rings, wire, earwires, etc.), all the usual stuff including scissors, wax, beading mat, task light, magnifiers if you typically use them for close work, etc.
