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.
This two sided beaded Starburst Scarf Slide will make a wonderful gift for someone who doesn't wear much jewelry. Instructions are also given to make it into a Pendant. The various sizes of beads and the two sides joined in the outer rows creates a very firm piece of jewelry. Instructions are given for the herringbone peyote bail for the pendant.
On the pattern pages, I have provided you with:
pictures of the finished items
step by step illustrated and text instructions plus lots of photos.
