BEAD STUDY

TOPIC: Dimensional Shapes in Beadwork

We will be using Diane Fitzgerald's new book on dimensional shapes as a study guide. The book is entitled "Shaped Beadwork: Dimensional Jewelry with Peyote Stitch". We have copies for sale in the shop.

We will probably stick with this topic for the next 12 months.

We will organize the studies into 5 units:

(1) Making basic polygons

(2) Making donut polygons

(3) 3-Dimensional Shapes

(4) "Shape" as a design element

"Dimensionality" as a design element

(5) Other Geometrics from other artists, like Julia Pretl, Jean Powers, Judith Walker, Laura McCabe
