Thistles is my latest adventure into the world of sculpted Cubic Right Angle Weave using different size beads to achieve a graded effect. The Thistles are graduated to allow ease of movement while the ropes are gently washed through with the subtle pastel colours used to embellish the Thistle heads. Notice also a flash of crystal to make it sparkle. The elements of this design have so many possibilities

Instructor Name: Stephanie Burnham

Instructor Bio: Stephanie comes from a textile background but after discovering Beadwork she has never looked back.

She has taught beading for many years in the UK and Europe and was also invited to teach 9 classes on a workshop tour of Japan.

In 2009, Stephanie opened ‘the Bead Scene Studio’ selling all things bead related including teaching an extensive workshop programme. She then decided to close the studio in 2018 to concentrate much more on Designing and Teaching started whilst in the studio.

She has written six beading books and has also worked on live craft channels.

During the last 2.5 years Stephanie has really enjoyed working on zoom as she feels it is such a great vehicle for teaching especially the live up close demonstrations, screen sharing and being able to connect with students from around the world.
