This workshop is run over two sessions

Do you want your bead embroidery designs begin to take flight?  Come along to this class with Catriona and bring to life your very own bead embroidered Butterfly.  This beautiful butterfly pendant is made by capturing a Swarovski pear with a peyote bezel and then embellished with bead embroidered wings. 

The pendant will be taught in this six-hour workshop over two three-hour sessions.  The first session will cover learning to bezel your pear Swarovski crystal, how to build the fluttering wings, bead placement and various embroidery techniques.

Between sessions, students will be required to complete some homework so that during the second session we can work on construction and finishing.  Please do not expect to complete your brooch in the class.  Students will be provided with full PDF step by step instructions, including photographs to help you complete your butterfly at your own pace.  All parts of the pendant will be demonstrated during the sessions and Catriona is in email contact after the class for any questions you may have completing your piece.
