This is a Cross that was made for, and named after, my Mother in law who I can not call an in-law she was my Mother and I adored her. She would havd loved this cross so I am shareing it now with all of you. This nice thing about this cross is that you can make it as written or you can drop the sizes of the beads down and make a smaller cross and if you want to finish the back (which is optional) you can embroider it (after making it) to heavy felt and then add ultra suede and finish it off around the edges with seed beads. This is a bead weaving tutorial that will teach you how to stitch this beautiful cross. Some bead weaving experience is needed, if this is your first time beading then I would say that this is for the intermediate to experienced beader. I do try to make my Patterns easy enough for beginners but I still say that it is for the intemediate to experienced beaders. You will be working with a cross over and layering technique. This pattern is great as a gift for yourself or your favorite beader. Please do not distribute, lend, teach, or copy these instructions. Please give credit to the designer.

I am a member of the Dallas Bead Society and have taught classes at my local bead store as well as the Shreveport Bead Retreats. I always loved jewelry and the sparkle, my Father always said "Find something you love and do it". Well in the 60's and 70's I was a little hippie and loved beads but never could find anybody that could really teach me how to make the jewelry that I wanted and my Mother wanted me to be a nurse (I hated the sight of blood) so that was out. I ended up being a bartender then a hairdresser then I found a person that taught me (in my 40's) how to really make the beaded jewelry that I liked. Then one day my Husband looked at all of the jewelry that I had made and said that I needed to sell some of my pieces, so I took them to work and the girls that I work with loved them. They suggested that I sell them in the Salon that we work in and the customers liked them too. Then I started dreaming about new designs and so I decided to write my own patterns my only problem is that I am dyslexic, and I thought maybe there was others out there like me. So I decided to make my patterns so that even beginners would have an easier time following them. Even now I have to admit some patterns are a little easier than others that I write then I learned that I loved teaching others how to do my patterns and also just the basic stitches in beading that you need to know to start. It is really funny how a business just takes off unexpectedly, I should have listened to my Father all those years ago I think I would have been much happier back then. Anyway I hope you enjoy my patterns as much as I have enjoyed them myself.
