Tri Link Choker Class Saturday February 20

This Saturday in our regular class series, a new lighter and more delicate design will pave the way for sunny days and spring evenings.  This idea came to me, as I imagined what kind of jewelry would one wear on an island in the Mediterranean and this is what came to fruition.  
Combining two ancient off loom weaving techniques and allowing the links to become the focal points with the Native American Peyote stitch and the Spiral Stitch of the Zulus coming together in a new interpretation of the past with hammertone gold as the focal points.  Accenting the circularity of the links, the closure is a contrast in a square deco style.

Participants are also going to experiment with how threads can change and alter the colorways of a piece and how to enhance this feature along with experimenting of color blending of beads to create a subtle but rich palette. 

We have one seat remaining for this class.
