The elegant cuff, punctuated by a row of pearls, drapes comfortably around your wrist. The triangle beads add a cool, crepe-de-chine structured look, no matter if the beads are matte or glossy.

The technique, two-drop peyote, makes it rewardingly fast to bead, while the uneven count adds a bit of sophistication and 2 needles to the project.

Bring your own beading mat, beading needles, size 12, thread (FireLine 8lb), scissors and a craft light (if desired).

Catch the aura of the moon goddess and keep her as a charmed pendant close by. The exquisite yet subtle glow of these wonderful lucite cabochons will mesmerize anyone gazing into them.

Utilizing the new demi sizes to delicately bezel the centerpiece and an additional flaming circle of rizo beads, these pendants request adulating attention.

Gracefully suspended from a right angle weave chain, you can wear the necklace long or shortened. The handmade toggle closure adds some extra textured vibrancy.

The intriguing texture of this cuff is the result of utilizing very different bead shapes and finishes. It is simply beaded in Ndebele, alternating pinch and seed beads. Great project for new beaders and folks who like their beads a bit on the larger side, or if you need a quick and stunning present? The cuff also looks great beaded up straight without the cross-over. Make two if you can’t decide!!

This elegant and intriguing bracelet with its spiky shells is a further variation of my undulating spine idea with continuously counter spiraling shells worked in peyote. Alternating two different shell sizes, an extra twist is added by also switching front to back when changing the direction of the spiral. Sounding most complicated it actually works very quickly once you get the hang of the change over. It is worked in one piece, some beads are shared by two tubes creating a solid connection. The work is sculptural and the bracelet can be worn from both sides.

Special Instructions for Students (what they need to bring) Bring your own beading mat, beading needles, size 12, thread (FireLine 8lb), scissors and a craft light (if desired).

Annette’s earliest memories are of making things with her hands. The love to create and adorn has always been an integral part of her life and she takes great pleasure in generating connections between beauty and wearability in her jewelry, as well as in combining playful elegance with simplicity. Beads, with their vast multitude of colors and textures and their rich history that stretches through millennia, were an instant love affair. Annette approaches all projects with a beginner’s mind. By carefully arranging and rearranging the individual components she aims to create artwork that is beautiful and functional at the same time. Sharing her designs in workshops across the country has become a joyful passion.
