Fanatical about foxes? If so, I'm sure this cute and quirky beadwork fox tutorial will be right up your street! He was originally created for a beading group challenge where group members had to come up with a piece of beadwork inspired by an animal.
Step-by-step instructions and photographs will guide you through the process of beading this fun foxy face to wear as a necklace pendant - complete with swishy tassel tail.
This tutorial is intended for intermediate beaders who already have a working knowledge of the cubic right angle weave stitch (this stitch is not explained in depth within this tutorial).

Having been initially self-taught in her jewellery making, after discovering the jewellery supplies aisle of a craft shop, brimming with brightly coloured beads, Hollybird Beads has spent the past five years educating herself in the art of beadweaving. She loves the intricacy and delicacy of this technique; how a few handfuls of tiny glass beads can be stitched into wearable pieces of beaded art. As well as finished jewellery, Hollybird Beads is now working on tutorials for a number of her designs to share with other beadwoven jewellery makers.
Hollybird Beads has recently become interested in the use of precious metals in jewellery making and has begun learning the traditional techniques of hand-piercing, soldering and texturing metal, with the ambition of creating a range of jewellery which brings together both her love of beadwork and precious metalwork.
