In this creative, convivial and collaborative series of classes, Allison Wiley will show you how to make two versions of the double strand necklace; one short and one long.

When you invision the typical double strand necklace, those pearls worn by Queen Elizabeth in countless photos probably come to mind. In our first session however, pearls and beads of different sizes, shapes and colors will be used to totally update this classic short necklace. In the second class, a variety of materials will be used to create a more contemporary take on this longer version, similar to the photo shown.

Allison Wiley will show you how to breath new life into these classic pieces placing special emphasis on design elements such as beading placement and proper attachment techniques that will serve you well for this class as well as a precursor for future course designs.

Students can expect to:

  • Receive all materials required to create and complete both projects
  • Learn and apply the necessary techniques unique to each project
  • Leave each class with a distinctive double-strand necklace

Course requirements:

  • Jewelry Artistry Beading is a prerequisite.
