Three ladies attended my 1st Bead Embroidery class yesterday, they were all beginners and very new to bead embroidery. What fun we had! I did all my prep beforehand, and really enjoyed teaching them what I already know and have learned over the year - the numerous videos I downloaded and watched, the more than I can remember files I downloaded and study, and then my own personal experience that added value really paid off for not only me, but for my students as well.
They beaded a very simple pendant consisting of a Jasper Cabochon from Upington here in South Africa, size 8/0 and size 11/0 seed beads. A simple black leather rope finished off the pendant, and they all went home with their pendants around their necks - 3 very happy and satisfied customers!
