About This Class

Join Odin on another Epic beading adventure. Follow along to create this stunning necklace masterpiece, or take one part and create your own stunning jewelry pieces. This class is for Part 3, where we will bring it all together and connect the two sizes of Rivolis you created in the previous classes. Then take it to the next level by attaching two different kinds of beaded chains using spike beads and Czech Two Hole Crescents. Even if you do not create the whole necklace, this class is chock full of techniques for you to use on  your very own jewelry designs.

Play with colors and create your own personal rainbow while learning intermediate beading techniques.
