Firefly Lantern Pendant
Weave a sparkling lantern with CRAW! The Firefly Lantern Pendant features gorgeous relief teardrop crystals that decorate a foundation of cubic right-angle weave (CRAW). This project's self-supporting construction pushes the possibilities of CRAW to create a delightfully dimensional piece of beadwork. In this workshop, we'll explore how to construct the body of the pendant using CRAW and a few of its variations, and you'll learn how to bezel each teardrop into place using the fringe technique. You'll bezel each round crystal and attach them to the pendant as freely moving fringes. Finally, you'll attach a bail to the top of the pendant, and a unique beaded rope completes the piece.
Prerequisites: Students should be proficient in RAW and CRAW. Knowledge of the fringe technique or the Albion stitch is helpful, but not required to participate in this class.
Skill level: Advanced
