A New Year is just around the corner and it is time to start thinking of beading again.

Our next meeting will be Thursday January 17 at 7 PM at the Dennis Police station.

Our instructor will be Ann Hochman. She will be teaching the Quintessential Necklace. Attached are photos of examples of the necklace. Remember you can always substitute what you want for your necklace as long as you stay within the suggested size of beads. This necklace could be made with Turquoise, sterling and red coral or Black Onyx and gold. Anything is possible so use you imagination.

Supply List:

40-46 6 mm or 5 mm beads (crystals, pearls, gem stones or glass beads)

23-29 4 mm beads

36-44 3 mm beads

2 grams of size 11 beads in a contrasting or complimentary color

Clasp of your choice

2 beading needles, #10 or # 12 Big eye needles can be used but make sure they will pass through the beads several times. Be especially careful of this if you are using real pearls.

Ruler, scissors, beading mat, tape or pins to secure beads to work surface.

See you there!
