Project Info:

Level: Intermediete

Estimated time: 4-6 Hours

Project By: Brittany Ketcham
Sample By: Brittany Ketcham

Considered her "soul sister," Raphaela was the first person Britt immediately connected with when she began working at The Bead Shop many years ago. Both women are avid and talented jewelry designers. Raphi, as she was known by her co-workers, would always have a ready smile for both her friends and customers. As Brittany would say, “Raphaela is bright, bold, spiritual, creative and wise. She's classy and sophisticated with an edge.” Because this project is considered Intermediate Level, prior experience with laddering, macramé and silk-wrapping are important. Please watch the recommended videos if you are new to the techniques covered in Compadres:
Stackable Ladder, In The Garden and How to Silk Wrap.
