Thanks for "bouncing in" to my little corner of the world. I promise, it will be worth the effort. My given name is Beth Rudy, but my native name is "Bouncing Wolf". This was inspired by my love of a certain orange and black Disney character, and my 5-year-old golden-lab of the same name -- Tigger. We both have a very hard time keeping our feet on the ground when we get excited.
And nothing excites me more than a new creative idea. Many times, my creative mind moves faster than my hands can ever keep up with.
Rest assured that all of my patterns have been fully tested by me! I don't use a bead fairy. Each pattern is shown with a photo of the finished piece that I have beaded from the pattern.
So, check back often for new patterns. When my creative muse strikes, watch out!!!
Thanks for shopping with me.
Even Count Tubular Peyote Stitch is an Intermediate level beading technique which can be used to create beaded tubes or cylinders. The size of the beaded tube is determined by the number and size of beads used. The technique is useful for creating beaded feather quills, bangle bracelets, flower stems and seamless amulet bags.
