Additional Information
Description:
Three organic leaf shapes are joined together to capture the central component of this design. Using a technique of color grading and blending really makes this design shine for all seasons. A beautiful bezeled cushion-cut CZ adds just the right touch of elegance to this design. A variation of right-angle weave is used to create a fabulous strap ending in two lovely buttons and a button connector. The kits represent the seasons: Fall, winter, spring and summer.
Students will Learn:
Students will hone their skills while working with a variation of right-angle weave (RAW) for the lovely necklace strap; experience shaping of the leaves using flat peyote stitch, with increasing and decreasing; and use flat circular peyote stitch with increasing, to create the base of the little buttons.
