This course explores bead weaving techniques using a beading needle and thread. We are going to make some pretty jewellery with a Christmas bauble theme. It is slightly tricker than the Daisy jewellery we made previously. I will demonstrate earrings in this course but again the skills can be transferred to larger pieces such as bracelets and necklaces – I will show you how to do this. me. It is the second course of a series of courses which will progress in difficulty. Whilst earrings will be demonstrated, this bead netting technique can be used to make either a bracelet or necklace and the adjustments for this will be demonstrated too. I will also introduce you to some basic jewellery making tools such as pliers, jump rings and magnetic and lobster clasps.
