Impilati

Date: Thursday, March 14, 2019, 6-8pm

Skill Level: Intermediate

Prerequisites: any bead weaving

Instructor: Charlene Abrams

Class Price: $43

Seed beads in three colours and three sizes make these fun little beaded beads. I think of these as “popcorn” projects as each one is so quick and so satisfying that you can’t just stop at one. This project is suitable for anyone with some seed bead weaving experience.

 

These work well for earrings if you manage to stop at just two, and can easily be strung on 1mm cord or chain as a necklace if you find you can’t stop making them.

 

Use Czech or Japanese Toho seed beads - choose beads that are flatter and rounder and less cylindrical (shape may vary by colour) for optimal success. Matsunos will not yield optimal results.
