Fishtail Pendant: Designing with Reversible Beads
Designing with Reversible Beads
Project: Fishtail Pendant.
Level:Beginner to Advanced
Travel the world of color while making a collection of simple flat beads and color coordinated, reversible pendants using Maggie’s Smashing Color Mixing Map and signature ColorWash technique.
Bring along something as inspiration for your color scheme – beads, artwork, fabrics, magazine clippings. A good part of the day will be spent auditioning colors and making test beads to find just the right undertones and color combinations for you.
We will refer to your test beads to determine the colors of your personal palette and the refine the color scheme for your collection of flat polymer beads.
The real fun begins when you cut out the pieces, flip them over, and mix and match them for a full collection of solid color beads!
Once all the beads are cured, you can select your favorite pieces to finish and string into a beautiful Fishtail Pendant.
Take the rest of your collection home to finish and create color washed jewelry such as a simple single bead pendant or complex necklace.
