Black Sachet Ball

Sachet Ball

Two-day class
Level: Intermediate/Advanced
with proficiency in tubular Peyote stitch and basic netting.

This piece focuses on an unstructured (no armature) 3-dimensional ball shape that creates a locket with an opening hinge. The strap portion is a unique variation on standard netting, to create a crochet type spiral with a self-beaded clasp.

The ball is designed to teach the physical properties that are used to create a self-supporting ball shape out of tubular peyote. This ball locket is created with 15/0 seed beads.

The strap portion is an innovative way to use netting, specifically using 15/0, Delica, 11/0 and 10/0 triangles to create a beautiful new spiral.  Create a unique type of closure with the Y split that opens.

This piece was taught at the 2005 Bead & Button Show as a workshop.
