Sarah Lariat
Sarah LariatSarah Bernhardt was a French actress of the stage and early film during the late 1800s. Born in 1844 to a courtesan, she became the most acclaimed actress of her generation.

In 1894, Alphonse Mucha, one of the pioneers of the Art Nouveau movement, was asked to produce a promotional poster for Bernhardt's latest production, Gismonda, playing at the Renaissance Theatre in Paris. The result of this collaboration catapulted Mucha into the limelight in international art scene almost overnight. The partnership with Bernhardt would last for a total of six years, and would result in Mucha rendering Bernhardt on dozens of posters, prints, paintings, and postcards.

“Sarah” is a lariat style necklace inspired by a glass vessel found at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland. I love lariats, as they are versatile in style, elegant, feminine and yet sassy. In this workshop, you will learn to create seed bead components with circular brick stitch, circular peyote and a variation of spiral rope chain.

Intermediate to Advanced level: Participants must be proficient in peyote, herringbone and familiar with brick stitch.
