Our 2012 Bursary event will be an opportunity to either learn bead crochet (beginners) or learn how to do a project based on the Turkish-style beaded snakes (intermediate to advanced crocheters). Adele plans to teach two projects to beginners (or anyone who would like to do them) the chain stitch necklace and the tubular bead crochet pendant. More experienced bead crocheters may choose to concentrate on the snake project.

crochet and learn to crochet beads with

chain stitch, crochet with beads, finish

a necklace with bead caps, and attach a

clasp with basic wire working techniques. Make one long necklace, a three-strand necklace that can be braided or twisted with ribbon, or a multi-strand bracelet. No crochet experience needed.
