If you haven’t tried coiling pine needles yet, here is your chance to learn on a small project. If you have coiled before, you will have the opportunity to learn new stitches. Begin the coil with your choice of a walnut slice or clay base. I will make several polymer clay bases and beads for you to choose between. Choose your colors. You will learn the common stitch, diamond stitch, open wrapping and closed wrapping. Plus learn how to incorporate beads into your piece. Each piece is unique and the variations are endless.
