Savannah Heat

Designed especially for the Old South Bead Retreat in Savannah, GA.  in September 2017.  A Right Angle Weave project with buried Swarovksi treasures.     

These are my workshops that I teach at various bead stores and for bead societies around the country.  Because of my intense dislike of dealing with kits, I do not teach at any of the shows. That is one of  my choices that keeps beading FUN for me.  My current workshops that I am teaching are not for sale.  My retired workshops are for sale and they can be found in my Etsy shop, "SturdyGirlDesigns", along with many other tutorials  that didn't make the workshop status.

Hanky Panky 

A little bit of CRAW, PRAW and RAW  and throw in some Peyote.   Makes a great bracelet or necklace.   Made with metal seed beads and Swarovski pearls or bicones or any embellishment that works.  Even a little FIrepolish!
