    Kimberly Stathis Spirit Orb Necklace


    SJBS is delighted to welcome back Kimberly Stathis, a nationally recognized creative beadwork designer and instructor who travels extensively teaching her designs. Her creative expression is inspired by the many colors, textures and shapes of the beads themselves.

Kim's necklace Spirit Orb has a reflective light emitting orb-shaped pendant, which is hollow with a center support of connected bezeled Chaton crystals. The beadwork of the Orb is richly textured and very structural in nature. Pearls and bicone crystals add a touch of elegance to the overall design

    Local Spot Light with SJBS Program Chair

    Johanna Zitto



    Transitions abound between herringbone and peyote stitches, both flat and tubular, in the design of this necklace rope and focal. Registrants will learn how to make the herringbone-to-Cellini spiral-then-back again rope. A slight variation of these stitches will be covered to show how a striking stand-alone focal can also be made.

    The elongated two-sided triangle with a peyote bail that adorns the Transitions rope can also be made as a stand-alone focal to string on strands of leather or chain.

    Supply List will be available with registration

    Registration: $55 members / $85 non-members
