I've been designing beaded jewelry for about 8 years. My initial attempts at designing were to make beautiful jewelry with semi-precious (healing) stones. The beads kind of took over my life and I'm not particular what I use to design with as long as it is a high quality bead.
I can't say I have a favorite stitch or type of bead, but lately I've been experimenting with the new Twin beads and Super Duos.
Next on my to-do list is design some items with Cubic Right Angle Weave with the Twins. It works in my head, now to put thread and beads to it.
Lovely beaded fans worked in triangle stitch zigzag the length of this Fanfare bracelet looking much like peacock tails. The closure is Beadazzled ring and toggle. If you're unfamiliar with triangle stitch, don't be intimidated. The step by step instructions will take you through it without a hitch.

Pictures of the finished braclet plus closeups of the toggle and ring to show how they are attached.
