An intriguing combination of textile and beadwork. First, hand dyed silk velvet is used to create a textured cabochon and beaded beads. These are embellished with a delicious mix of accent beads. The beaded elements are linked with delicate metal findings and finished with patterned fringing and a tiny brass bird. Tamlyn is worked in a combination of beading stitches and has a beaded necklace, with the option of an additional extension piece so it can be worn long or short.
Suitable for intermediate beaders. Students must be confident with thread tension
