"Pine Needle Jewelry"
September 29-30, 2018
 

It’s a Set! A unique cuff bracelet coiled with pine needles and embellished with beads. We will utilize a wire form and wrap it with artificial sinew, using the double button hole stitch. Pine needles are then coiled around it using the wheat and fern stitch. The beads will be added using the fagoting stitch. To complement our unique bracelet, we will make a spectacular Pine Needle Pendant. The pendant is created in a similar fashion. Applying the double button hole stitch around a plastic ring, coiling with pine needles and beads. But wait! To finish off our set we need Earrings. Our earrings will be a smaller version of our pendant. All set to go!
