Pleur

Date: Thursday, May 9, 2019, 6-8pm

Skill Level: Intermediate

Prerequisites: cubic right angle weave

Instructor: Charlene Abrams

Class Price: $43

If you’ve done any cubic right angle weave, you’ve probably made many ninety-degree joins - with this project you’ll learn how to make an acute-angle join. It’s easier than you think because it’s more of a split than a join.

 

This time the bail is the whole point: a teardrop with an elongated tail may be worn singly on your favourite beaded rope, or crowded clasp-to-clasp.  The tail may be embellished with a frothy, fringed confection as shown, or instead attached to a petite lamp worked bead, or extended long and unadorned as a dramatic minimalist statement.  Don’t forget to print out supply list below.
