Are you ready to break away from a pattern and to start designing your own beaded jewelry? Do you want to adopt a more improvisational approach to your beadwork? Do you want helpful tips for freeform peyote stitch? If you answered yes to any of these questions, get started with this informational web seminar!
Join Mandi Ainsworth for this web seminar packed full of tips and techniques for creating freeform peyote stitch beadwork. The biggest challenge for beaders is actually starting their freeform peyote piece. Mandi will show you three different starts, including a less intimidating "structured" start, and will also provide tips on how to coach yourself through the "ugly duckling" phase of your beaded jewelry.
The best and scariest part of freeform peyote is the simplicity of it; you just weave in and out of every other bead or beads, with whatever beads you want. It's best to approach it like a playground, but that doesn't mean throw all design principles out the window. Learn how to create bridges, as they are key in freeform design. A playful mindset is important because creative process will flow and prevent "stuck" moments. Experience with peyote stitch is not necessary because the rules will be broken.
In this web seminar you will learn:
Important methods for choosing your beads and getting started correctly.
What "bridges" are, and how to incorporate this key technique into your work.
Intuitive design principles by asking yourself two simple questions.
Important techniques for getting unstuck and navigating through the "ugly duckling" phase.
How to create your own original beaded designs using freeform peyote.
And much more!
