Deep Blue Sea

Project Info:

Level: Beginner

Estimated time: 3-4 hours

Project and Sample by Emily Miller

With natural striations that mimic the ocean’s surface, this Sodalite disc is surrounded by even deeper hues…quite a stunner! See if you can feel the sea’s calming effect as you bead this beautiful brooch.

Bead Embroidery is one of our most requested techniques…set aside the time to watch Emily and Kate use a classic Sodalite Pi gemstone disc to explore some of the stitches used to bezel and embellish, then learn how secure a pin back. This is just the beginning of working with beads and fiber in embroidery! Several of the methods Emily uses can be applied to bead woven designs, as well.

Please join us as our worldwide community gathers on Facebook at 10:30am Pacific Time on March 28, 2018. It’s so much fun to go live with us and bead together! After the live broadcast the video will be available in the Video Tab above.
