Russian Spiral

Price: $25.00

Date: 08/18/2017

Russian spiral is a tubular stitch that can be done with a wide variety of different beads and sizes.  You can use everything from tiny 15s to (comparatively) huge 4mm beads, and the look changes drastically!  This one can be positively jewel encrusted or, as Gail will teach you with seed beads, lacy and petite.  It's the kind of bracelet you're going to want to make a stack of.  Who doesn't love those?

Bead weaving experience is helpful before taking this class.  Try our Bead Weaving for Beginners or Simple Spiral class!

Instructor is Gail DeLuca.

We all love instant gratification projects.  Okay, no beadwork is instantly gratifying, but these come close.  You can sit down and finish one of these in fifteen minutes -- less for you quick stitchers.  These little beaded beads are also just plain fun.  Turn them into earrings or string a bunch of them onto leather for a necklace that will go with any and everything in your closet.  Heck, just put them in a bowl and admire them.  Promise you won't be able to stitch just one.

This class is great for beginners!
