Sunset Over San Juan

This RAW project will have you beading in circles (well, in figure 8’s)!

A fun combination of beads, you may choose to make this wider or narrower.  Each strip is about 1/4″ wide – so mine is about 3/4″ wide complete.

For my 7″ bracelet I used:

  • 93 – 4mm fire polished rounds (Ruby AB &  Amethyst)
  • 254 – 2mm pearls (Burgundy & Purple)
  • 1 gm 15/o seed beads (White Opaque Lila Vega Luster)
  • 3-strand magnetic clasp (Gold)

Kits are available in the shop

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.
