Component Based Designs
kindly donated by Laura McCabe
Sometimes the simplest of components make up the most spectacular of designs. Here Laura has taken a basic circular component created using Right Angle Weave and Peyote stitch and applied it to a couple of different jewelry projects. Instructions for making the earrings are included HERE. The pendant is provided as an inspiration piece to encourage you to take the basic element and design your own component based jewelry.
