In this online beading workshop we will create a statement brooch or pendant with this steampunk-inspired design.
Whether adorning a coat or top hat at a Victorian ball, or fluttering around your neck as a colourful summer accessory – your colour choices for this project will be sure to make it stand out!
Choose metallic base metal colours or go wild with rainbow opaque beads – the choice is yours! This project uses single-needle right angle weave to bezel stones and create delightful circular components, which have so many uses beyond this project! Bring it all together with added embellishment and metal components.
Suitable for intermediate – Advanced beaders. Some experience of right angle weave would be advantageous.

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!
