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.
Coquette can be elegant or casually untamed and flirty depending on the beads you use. Bead the loops with seed beads accented with pearls or druks for a casual look or make them with crystals or faceted fire polished rounds for a more elegant look. However you make the loops the emebelished base forms an elegant foundation for the necklace
