Create a 3-Dimensional Fabergé style egg using peyote stitch. This locket-style pendant can open with a hinge and hidden clasp to reveal a surprise of your choice – or be stitched closed with a chiming ball inside for a musical pendant. These dinky eggs measure just 3.5cm high when complete.
There are lots of variations for this project; besides creating a hinged locket or a closed ornament, you can choose the type of clasp you use (magnetic or beaded); whether you use Crystaletts for the centre or bicones; whether to add an embellishment or even the size of the finished egg!
Suitable for intermediate-advanced beaders. Experience of peyote in the round required.
Online Workshop Requirements
The class will be taught using Zoom online meeting software. This will allow you to see me and your fellow classmates (you will have the ability to mute or turn off your camera at any point if you wish). We can also share photos as we work.
You will need a computer/laptop, smartphone or tablet with camera and audio capabilities. You will need to download the free Zoom software or app to your computer, phone or tablet in advance of the meeting. Full details of how to join the online meeting will be sent to you upon booking. The app/software is free and you do not need to create an account to attend the class.
Materials not included. You will be sent a full requirements list upon booking along with the pattern. You will need:
Size 11 Toho Demis
Size 11 Japanese seed beads
Size 15 Japanese seed beads in 2 colours
7 x 3mm Swarovski Crystaletts® Buttons
Chiming ball (optional)
Split ring, ribbon or chain to hang
Small 5-6mm magnetic clasp (optional)
Tanzee Designs (based in UK) stocks all of the materials needed for this project. If you can’t find what you are looking for then do give them a ring and they will be able to help you match colours and find suitable swaps. For US folk, Jill Wiseman Designs stocks most of the necessary beads and materials in a lovely array of colours (except for the Crystaletts® buttons and chiming balls). The project can also be made with size 8s and 11s, 4mm bicones and size 8 Demis for a larger egg.
About the class
Class sizes are kept small so you can be guaranteed plenty of help and support. I will have two cameras in use during the class so you will be able to see my demonstrations up close in high definition as well as my face! There is a messaging function in addition to the meeting audio as well so plenty of opportunity to ask questions and discuss the project. My classes are fun and informal with plenty of opportunity for discussion and general chatter.
Unfortunately due to the nature of the session and the fact you will be sent the full pattern upon booking refunds cannot be given if you are unable to make one or both of the sessions. If you cannot make one/both of the sessions I will try to swap you to another date for the same project if available but this cannot be guaranteed. I am always available if you have any questions on the project after the workshop.
If you have any questions please contact me. I’m looking forward to seeing you!
