Crochet Beaded Centrepiece

This amazing beaded centrepiece was worked by Liz Foat

The pattern came from an old Crochet Monthly magazine.

The finished piece  is approx. 7 ins (17 cms) in diameter.

Materials  used approx. 10 gr. No 80 crochet cotton.  Liz used white for this piece.  Other materials were

  • 60mm Steel crochet hook.
  • 474 sml blue beads
  • 414 sml yellow beads
  • 27 lg blue beads
  • 27 pearl tear drop shaped beads.

All 942 beads have to be threaded onto the crochet cotton before starting the work.

As the hook did not go through the small gold beads Liz  used this method.

 

 

August 2016 Mini Workshop

Our mini workshop in August was presented by Carolyn Turton (our new Queensland Guild President).

In this workshop Carolyn  demonstrated  how to make a pair of delicate beaded earrings. You might ask why a lace guild would include beading workshops in it’s agenda but as many of the modern or contemporary  lace styles include adding accessories such as beads or sequins learning to work with beads is very relevant. As well as the fact that we like to learn new skills and have fun.

You can see some of  the results of this recent workshop in the images below .

If you are interested in taking part in one of our upcoming mini workshops please get in touch.
