About This Project:
Astronaut bracelet is a small, comfortable and positively odd design. In its center, there is a small cab depicting one of three kinds of astronauts: a pug, a tabby cat and a panda. Upon request, disgruntled bulldog is also an option. Are you not into the descendants of the great Laika? ( First dog in space, although she never came back. I promise you these cosmonauts are well prepared for safe return.) 
On the surface it is a very simple little thing, but don't let that fool you. The galaxy swirling around our astronauts will bend your mind. So will the unusual use of French wire. 
There is no template given, the placing of the French wire is going to guide your design, mastering the technique is a big part of this class. Because of the lack of the template, you are in charge of the fit: birdie wristed indiviuals can make it narrower by keeping their galaxies from expanding too much, and those of us with more real estate can give the astronauts a bit more space. 
Required Experience:
This is an Intermediate to Advanced class. Students will be best prepared if they have prior knowledge of Peyote stitch and Bead Embroidery.
