If you draw some of your beading roots from Native American artwork, or Bohemianism, then you’ll want to add Potawatomi weave to your repertoire. This simple yet sturdy stitch contains a pattern that can be adapted to look just like a neat little row of daisies, and once you get it started, the steps are simple to remember. To get a traditional looking daisy chain, we will use a basic palette of opaque and transparent seed beads. Nadine Andrews has been working with fine bead weaving and jewelry design for over 30 years. Each student will take home a kit to make more bracelets on their own!
