Our next project is Basic Peyote Bezel.

We will do a peyote bezel, and one row of embellishment around a 14 mm crystal rivoli.

We can provide 14mm Swarovski crystals for $2 each in the available colors: copper, amethyst, violet, sapphire, red-orange, aqua, rose, lt topaz, vitrail lt, and olive. We also have a few complete “kits” available.

Please contact Kathy Taylor if you are interested in either a rivoli or a full kit.

Basic Peyote Bezel Supply List

The amounts listed are for one rivoli. Consider what your final project might be-pendant, ring, or earrings and bring the appropriate amounts.

Things are in full swing for the Mini Maker Faire on April 30th from 10:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Mashpee Middle School. Set-up will start at 8:30 a.m. It was decided that Bead Society members can either donate a piece of jewelry that they have created to be sold with the proceeds going to the Bead Society or if you volunteer for the Mini-Maker Faire you can sell your own pieces with a 15% charge of the item price to go towards paying the $25 table fee.

Please contact Shelley Zimmerman if you are interested in helping out with the Maker's Faire.
