About This Class

Super simple beaded bezel named after the tiny bubbly clouds that form during storms! This beginner level jewelry tutorial will give you another way to bead around a rivoli or other cabochon. Use this as a necklace and add your own beadwork chain, or continue on to Part 2 and learn how to make the entire bracelet.

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