Workshop
Super Froth Bracelet

Skill Level: Beginner/intermediate—previous experience with off-loom bead weaving is necessary.

A chance to spend a day reveling in excess, as you create a waterfall of decadent froth! This ndebele-based patterned cuff becomes the backdrop for the all of the encrusting, fringing and "Meinhardt Frothy Fringe" that you can fit on the bracelet's slanted edge. You will learn how to begin Ndebele on a 45-degree angle and how to fasten the cuff without a trace of the closure visible around your wrist. This fun, relaxed workshop is a pleasure for all skill levels. We know you will enjoy this day with NanC. (See supply list below photo.)
