Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Experience in attaching a stop bead, tying half-hitch knots , finishing off.

Pattern Description:

Create two versions of beaded bead using one tutorial! The Czech Spike beads are more and more popular, but in case you still dont have get them, use Czech flat 8mm triangle beads, I will explain how to modify the pattern to use different accent beads.

You also need to have some experience with seed beadweaving, know how to tie the knots and add thread. The step-by step diagrams and instructions with clear explanations are easy to follow and once you figure out the basic stitch the beaded bead doesnt take too long. That means you can stitch a couple of them, if you want, and to experiment with colour combinations.

You can sell the items you make following my instructions, but mass production is not permitted. Credit for the design (even if a only a part of your finished piece) should be included in your listing description and photos in your blog or anywhere on internet.

You can NOT teach this tutorial or distribute or resell it in any form, digital or printed. The tutorial is only for you! Once you receive it, the refund is not possible. I would love to hear from you and see your creations when you try it out!
