Rocaille Refinement Necklace

Calling all Lily-Gilders, Tassel-Hangers and Glitter-Sprinklers… this is SO your kind of jewelry!

Achieve elegant results in Soutache & Bead Embroidery. Adventurous Beginners will learn all the Basics including Aligning & Stacking, Shaping Stitches, Ending Stacks, Backing & Edge-Beading and creating Peyote Stitch Bezel. Those with more experience will be fascinated by new techniques including sculpting with Shibori ribbon, connecting components and creating a sturdy-but-delicate-looking captured-bead chain – a technique that can be used again and again in future soutache projects.

Students should come to class with a surface to bead on (bead board or bead blanket), good, sharp scissors and any magnifiers or extra task lighting desired. To complete the work, students will also need pliers, flush-cutters and looping or rosary pliers. Projects will not be finished in class but every kit comes with Amee Runs with Scissors’ full-color, “Whole Story” step-by-step instructions making it easy to finish the project at home. Kits will be provided in five different color-ways.

24-page instruction booklet, shape template, Ultrasuede, Beading foundation (Nicole's Bead Backing), 5 different colors of BeadSmith brand Soutache (including a textured metallic), shibori silk ribbon, 18mm x 24mm German acrylic cabochon, glass pearls (2 sizes), firepolish beads (3 sizes), freshwater pearls (mult.
