Pretty Picots

Pretty Picots design by Nancy Peterson

I found this pattern in an old Beading magazine, and modified it slightly to make it my own. In this case, the center of each picot has been created with a 4mm Czech Glass fire polished bead, instead of a crystal. It changes both the shape and overall look of the project a bit, and I just love the interplay of color and texture.

This project will be the first one I will teach at Craftgarden Beads in 2020, as it provides a great opportunity to reinforce a favorite technique – RAW – right angle weave. Before January I will design some earrings that will work well with this project.

This week will be the last week of classes for 2019 – I have exciting plans for 2020 and will keep you in the loop.
