Beaded Shibori Cuff with Lee Castle from Queensland
2 Day Workshop - Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd July
An encrusted cuff featuring a peyote beaded cabochon and glorious Shibori ribbon.
This bead embroidered cuff has a centrepiece of a Luna Soft glass cabochon. These cabochons have a beautiful matt finish and a silver backing that makes the colour glow from within. Teamed with the cabochon is a beautiful Shibori ribbon by Glennis Dolce from Shibori Girl Studio. The Shibori ribbon is a bias cut silk that has been hand dyed using the age old Japanese Shibori technique involving pleating and pole wrapping then dying and over dying. A multitude of seed beads, Swarovski crystal bicones and Czech pressed glass beads embellish every available space. The cuff has then been backed with Ultra suede for comfort. We will learn how to create a peyote stitch bezel for the cabochon, manipulate and manage the Shibori ribbon, basic bead embroidery and backing and edging a cuff.
The design size is 4cm in width and length to suit. Please choose your colour option from: Oranges, Teals/Greens, Blues, Mauves
