Online Beading Workshop


10am-2pm UK (BST)
6.30pm-1030pm Australia (ACST)
11am-3pm Europe (CEST)

Create a self-supporting beaded bottle with separate lid inspired by beautiful perfume bottles I discovered in a museum on my travels in Czech Republic.

This project uses peyote stitch to construct a rounded rectangle shaped structure with a clever decreasing technique to finish the top and create the bottle’s neck. We will complete the ornament with a removable lid and add decoration with a bezelled cabochon.

You will have options when it comes to the embellishment. I have used an 18mm cabochon for this sample shown here. I created this using a clear glass cabochon painted with nail varnish. You could use any 18mm cabochon, or even a 14mm or 16mm cabochon.

This virtual workshop will be taught in one 5-hour sessions. Materials are not included in the course cost. This class is being hosted by Stitchncraft Beads. Please see below for full details – you’ll need to register via the bead store, see the button below.

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 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.
