These vintage-inspired components will be among your most versatile tools. Combine them with purchased metal or stone rings or your own beaded rings for a fluid necklace or bracelet. Use one as an elegant bail for a teardrop-shaped focal bead. Work a shorter variation for sweet little earrings. They're also great for using up the last few drops of those gorgeous seed beads, or those last two rondelles, or for displaying that crystal drop. I have used mostly Chinese crystal rondelles, but Czech are also suitable. If you use crystal, I recommend Fireline to protects against abrasion. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY herringbone stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Each component is about an inch and a half long

I can neither imagine nor remember a time when I wasn't making things. I have tried almost every fiber art, and currently knit and spin my own yarn. I sew clothes and furnishings occasionally. I've dabbled in polyclay, lampwork and silver-smithing, but immerse myself in seed beading. I teach at a local bead store, as well at national shows from time to time. Patterns in my shop are by and large based on classes I have taught, so they've been tested on real people!
