Macha Necklace - Thurs, Jan 20 - The original piece was inspired by the Celtic torcs worn in ancient Ireland. But as time went on, I fell in love with the spirals found in Celtic designs and Macha changed to use these spirals and more color. The piece was named for the woman who was the only High Queen among the High Kings of Ireland. Participants will learn to make spiral pattern components with circular peyote and and join the components to make three-dimensional triskelians-a motif of the Celts. Intermediate participants should be familiar with circular peyote and right angle weave.

Bacchus Bracelet & Earrings - Fri, Jan 21 - These earrings are a component form the Penelope's Crown Workshop. The grape motif is found throughout antiquity jewelry, mosaics, and frescoes. Participants will learn to make grape leaves with a Right Angle Weave and peyote stitch and grape clusters with a variation of Nepal chain to make a pair of earrings or bracelet. Instructions include directions for both medium and large leaves. Intermediate-participants should be proficient with peyote and familiar with Right Angle Weave basics.

Iside Necklace - Sat, Jan 22 - Iside (Isis in Italian) is a pendant inspired by the headdress that is found on many of the statues of Isis found in Pompeii and Southern Italy. This Egyptian Goddess was worshipped in Pompeii where a temple and frescoes showing the rituals of the cults have been found. Components are made with peyote stitch and then combined with right angle weave to create this pendant. Although this pendant is shown on a Viking Knit chain, Viking Knit will not be taught in this workshop but instructions for Russian Spiral will be included in the handout. Participants should be proficient in peyote.
