Thursday, September 1, 2005, 7:00-10:00 p.m. (refreshments at 6:30)

For this month's project, one of our new ABS members, Elaine Pinckney, will teach us the Expanded Dutch Spiral. You may see Elaine's beautiful necklace in the August issue of Bead & Button in the "Your Work" section (also on B&B's web site). You will need nine or ten different beads for this project: (a) size 11 seed bead, (b) this is the largest bead and should be a size 5 or 6 (round, triangle, faceted, etc.), (c) & (d) can be a size 6 or 8 (round, hex, or triangle), (e) size 8 seed bead, (f) can be a size 8 or 11 seed bead, (g), (h), (i), & (j) size 11 (round, hex, or triangle). Elaine uses Fireline (8-lb) for her beading but you may use Nymo if you prefer it. We will have some supplies of beads at the meeting for those that need them (just enough to learn the technique, not enough to complete the project). This makes a gorgeous necklace and is not as complicated as it looks so don't be afraid to try it. It should be lots of fun. See you there! Don't forget to bring something for Show & Tell.
