This gorgeous piece will be our featured Project at the May Meeting.  Sheri has provided us with the supply list of things you need to bring to the meeting.


From Sheri:
I will be teaching the pendant design, for the May Beady Bunch project.
The supplies needed for this follows…
  • Delica beads (size 11) – 1 or 2 colors needed, small tube, or partial tube of beads will be plenty.
  • Dagger beads, or drop of any kind – 20+ beads needed, depends on how full you want the fringe to be.
  • Thread and needle that you are comfortable working with.
Have an idea what kind of necklace you will be putting the pendant on. so you know how large to make the starting tube.
I will attach a link, to the website that was my inspiration.
