Beads & Bourbon, at Wave Pool

I Work Hard For My Money - Beads & Bourbon event

Join us at Wave Pool for a little beading party!

I'll teach you to use the peyote stitch bead weaving technique to create your own cabochons using found objects and seed beads.  This event is offered in conjunction with this month's exhibition, "I Work Hard For My Money".  So the found objects we'll be working with are real U.S. currency... including some of our favorite coins presently found in circulation.

To participate in our beading party, be sure to purchase your tickets in advance!  Feel free to watch what's going on, and visit the current exhibition, without a reservation —  but we can only provide beading materials to ticket holders.  Each ticket also includes a beverage (cocktails available for ages 21 and over).

 This cabochon was made with a Sacagewaea Gold Dollar and seed beads (size 6/0 or 7/0, as well as size 8/0 or 9/0).  These particular seed beads are large enough that a superfine beading needle is not necessary — we'll be using ordinary embroidery and/or sewing needles!  So this project should be pretty easy for all ages.   Anyone we can trust with sharp needle, anyway...
