If you are an advanced beader, you can now learn to make this prayer vessel necklace. I will be teaching this 2 session class at The Beaded Iris in Albquerque, New Mexico on 2 consecutive Saturdays, October 16th and 23rd from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. It is comprised of ladder, brick, peyote and herringbone (tubular and circular versions). I recommend that students know at least 3 of those stitches in either flat, circular, or tubular form. There is a wirework option as well, for those who want. The vessel opens and a prayer or message can be placed inside. This project is a "non-denominational" version, derived from my Beaded Mezuzah Cases which are featured in 500 Judaica, now available from Lark Books.
See the Classes page on this website for more class details.
I have submitted this to Beadfest Santa Fe, but haven't heard back from Interweave yet.
