I have always been intrigued by marcasite jewelry, so very delicate with tiny sparkles! This is my own version of this look, using a combination of different sizes and shapes of seed beads and the newer Demi beads -- the bracelet is delicate in nature and very lightweight. Stitch a dual-layered focal point with a Rose Montee and Swarovski crystal rounds, connecting half-loops to the focal for the bracelet band. Must be proficient in circular peyote and herringbone stitch with step-ups. This is a project oriented class and time is not spent on learning basic stitches.
