Create delicate little works of art out of tiny shaped and round seed beads, and frame them with sturdy Tila beads. The Framed Art Blossoms Necklace features several rectangular beaded components that frame a custom collection of tiny flowers. A custom beaded strap joins the components together, and an additional beaded frame forms the clasp and completes the necklace. These frame components are also a great starting point for creating your own custom works of beaded art.
Students will learn how to combine Tila beads, SuperDuo beads, and Japanese seed beads to create three different sizes of sturdy frames. Students will also learn how to create a collection of tiny flower blossoms out of their choice of tiny beads, including drop, Demi Round, Dragon Scale, O, and Tri beads, and then students will learn how to connect them inside the beaded frames.
