Melanie de Miguel: Lorenzo de Medici Bracelet
Friday 3rd November 10am - 4pm Advanced
The Lorenzo de Medici bracelet comprises stunning Swarovski crystals set into little Peyote ‘nests’, trapped with filigree beadwork and joined together with pairs of beaded ‘wings’. The bracelet is a beautiful showcase for these gorgeous crystals. Students will learn exciting techniques to set their crystals and join the units in line to build the bracelet. Each component is individually adaptable for further beadwork.
The stitches used in this workshop are Circular Peyote, Herringbone (aka Ndebele) and modified Brick Stitch, so it is useful to have some experience in all of these.
