About This Class

I personally have made them using bicones, rounds, and pearls. Play with colors and create your own personal rainbow while learning basic beading techniques. Use up to three different 3mm colors to make it personal for you or a friend!

This class is designed to be a fundamental technique that will be built upon with two additional classes:



Be sure you understand this technique before moving on to the other advanced classes.
