Madelaine’s Choker: class/tutorial

Madelaine’s Choker: 2 Lessons/$25.00

beaded necklace, beads, buttons, charmsEveryone loves this piece, both in the making and the wearing. The style is timeless, and the possibilities for design endless. This necklace starts with a two-needle right angle ladder stitched base. Once the base is complete one needle sets off to create the dangles, which can be freshwater pearls, glass beads or vintage glass treasures, while the other needle adds a finished edge to the top of the necklace. A beautiful button or bead can be used for the closure. The dangles and embellishments can be simple and elegant or encrusted and fantastic, this is where your imagination can soar!

Skill Level Intermediate/Advanced: right angle weave and beading knowledge needed.

Lesson 1: This lesson will introduce you to the different components that you can use, and show you the variety of design options. I will show you how to set up your beads and the design components so that your progress in both work and design is successful. You will design and work the base of the necklace choosing from the options given or you can make up your own design.

Lesson 2: In this lesson the dangles and finishing touches will be covered, and then the fun starts, and you can begin to play! I will provide several different dangle and design options for you to chose from; I am sure you will want to make more than one!
