Beaded Tennis Bracelets
Taught by Sharon Zeisel
Sharon Zeisel studied art education at Long Island University right here in Brooklyn. She has been teaching beading all over the city for nearly a decade.
Sharon is a longtime resident of Windsor Terrace where she is raising her 2 daughters to embrace their creativity.
In this 1.5 - 2 hour session we will be learning how to bead stitch: sewing small beads together to produce a gorgeous patterned piece of jewelry. We will utilize the "right angle weave" which is a basic pattern in bead stitching, which will provide the base of a bracelet to be embellished to give a rich and full look to a quite simple design.
Although the results look intricate and complex, this is a beginner class and participants will each leave with one completed tennis bracelet, as well as a pattern and the knowledge to create many more on their own! Come join in on a modern day beading circle and get hooked on the need to bead!
We'll have a selection of beads to choose from, though they won't be the exact same beads as in the photos!
