Take your beading to a new level! Select a theme that appeals to you personally, research its background, develop a concept for it and then execute it during class. Any culture, ethnic group or artist typical of any defined period may serve as your inspiration. Your piece could become a beaded legacy and cherished keepsake. With Diane’s help, you will be expected to design, assemble components needed, and create a piece of beaded jewelry or decorative object, as well as give a short report on your theme that includes historical background, elements of design you wish to focus on and sketches of your concept.
