Beading Study Group, November 2019

Tuesday, November 19, 2019 Beading Study Group

Necklaces made from rope? Yes, this was the project for the Bead Study November meeting held at the Shepard Garden. Multi-talented artist Elisa Reutinger gave an exciting lesson on this unique form of jewelry design. Members collected beads, ribbon, and fibers from their home stashes and shared items with the entire class. The necklaces literally had no cost to make. Fibers were wrapped around a piece of rope and this is where the fun began. Necklaces were embellished with seed beads, charms, fringes, yarns, pendants, and coins. Each necklace was astonishing, unique and beautiful.
