Tonight at Beadzo in Tivoli NY, the only local bead store where I continue to teach regularly, Charlotte wore the bead crochet necklace she finished from last class.
Lise brought her St. Petersburg necklace. Last session she wanted to learn how to make the second pass. We discussed the idea of making it double for only a portion and then allowing it to "split". She sure ran with that concept. It takes these two pictures to share with you the design she ultimately made.

It can be worn with either focel front on center, allowing the other to drape gracefully down the back.
There were three projects going on in class. Terry chose to bead a herringbone bracelet worked lengthwise and incorporating "inclusions" between the stitches and within the stitches. My sample is the green one. She is working in a great combination of gold fumed clear amethyst and garnet colored seed beads, with pearls as her inclusions.

By the end of class Charlotte had completed these several inches of bead crochet. She will finish it with a couple inches of chain at each end, and a finding. Notice the little clusters of beaded beads. They are the "crystal balls" made of round glass pearls instead of bicone crystals. (Weave 4 units of right angle weave. Connect the first and last units with the addition of 2 beads. Pass through the ring of 5 beads at one edge and then repeat at the opposit edge.)

Beadzo is a wonderful venue for you to come enjoy an intimate class with a group of creative and welcoming beaders. Since the classes are still only $35, they are a value. Call 845-757-5306 to reserve a seat for the July 15th.
