Big beads (20mm in diameter) need big, attention-getting bead caps, not those barely-visible metal ones! They're like candy or potato chips because it's hard to stop at just one. Which is just as well, because they work well in multiples to accent gemstone or lampwork beads. Each cap also uses a very small amount of each type of bead, so those leftover beads which are too few for any reasonable project are just the ticket here. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY ladder stitch herringbone stitch right angle weave SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Works with 20mm beads

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!
