This necklace is inspired by the autumn scenes and colors found in ancient Roman frescoes. Each component is made by combining right angle weave with peyote stitch. The piece is reversible - one side with a floral motif and the other side a "coil-shape" encrusted with pearls. Participants will learn to make different sizes of each component and other shapes using the same technique. This one day workshop is suitable for intermediate to advanced students who are proficient in peyote stitch, know the basics of right angle weave and are ready to think outside the box and move beyond simply following step-by-step instructions.

"The first Salisbury Cathedral was completed at Old Sarum in 1092 under Osmund, the first Bishop of Salisbury. The Domesday Book is thought to have been presented to William the Conqueror at Old Sarum a few years earlier, in 1086. Disputes with the military and scarce water supplies led to an alternative location being sought and in 1220 a new site for the Cathedral was consecrated at New Sarum." This amazing and beautiful Cathedral is located in Wiltshire, England and was the inspiration for many books throughout the ages, notably Ken Follett's two books PILLARS OF THE EARTH, WORLD WITHOUT END, and SARUM by Edward Rutherford. It is one of the most beautiful example of Gothic architecture I have ever seen. The arches seen in Gothic churches inspired this project. Components are made with variations of peyote and chenille chain. This is a two-day workshop is suitable for intermediate to advanced students who are proficient in peyote stitch
