Level: All Levels

Estimated time: 4 Hours

Project by Janice Parsons
Sample by Kate Richbourg

Fresh from the beadshop.com Facebook LIVE broadcast from 12/21/16, Intuition is a new take on our classic Born Yesterday Project. This design incorporates macramé knotting and semi-precious stones, including Labradorite… said to heighten the intuitive process. We thought Intuition would be the perfect name as knotting is an intuitive process when both Kate & Janice create pieces in the style of Born Yesterday.

We rate this project “All Levels.” It takes only an afternoon to make. Review the Ingredients List for quantities of ingredients needed, and then open the SHOP and TOOLS tabs above to purchase. Please note, we are no longer able to source the Turitellan Rounds, and have suggested Wood Opalite in its place. If you would like to design your own version, please go to Born Yesterday Recipe.

For learning, check out the Facebook LIVE broadcast from 12/21/16 that features this project. You may also download the handout and refer to the Project Map below for a bird’s eye view of the sample.
