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.
Make these Coach Light Earrings in colors to match your wardrobe. Worked with two or three shades of transparent beads surrounded by opaque matte beads, they look like they're lit.
