This stunning necklace is a nod to art deco peacock jewelry popular in the 1920’s. The focal is a German glass cabochon with a gem-quality flame ball pearl gracefully suspended from it and surrounded by a crown of bugle beads.
Stitches: to create the different elements of the piece, several stitches are used, including a variation of St Petersburg, Peyote, RAW, flat half spiral, fan stitch, Albion, and a few other combination stitches. Please know that Albion, the St. Petersburg variation, half spiral, and fan stitch will all be taught in class. A strong foundation in RAW and peyote is required, as they are highly important prerequisites for this class.
