My second day of class at Beading By The Bay was with Sabine Lippert. We have been Facebook friends for a few years but this was the first time we met. She was everything I hoped she would be and more. She’s happy and joyful and always smiling.
Our project for the day is called Pendulum. It is made of a series of beaded sticks that are embellished on both ends. The sticks are then connected to form a necklace. The sticks are connected to the necklace with collars that allow them to slide up and down.
Here is what I finished in class.
I learn something new from everyone I take classes with. Sabine taught me to work from the spool. You pull out a length of thread and begin to work with the thread still attached to the spool. You continue until you run out of thread. Then you pull out however much you need from the spool and continue on in the other direction. This would be great for necklaces and ropes. You would be able to use twice the amount of thread before running out.
