These sweet little beaded beads are a mouth-watering delight - bet you can't stop at just one! Use them as earrings, or as a pendant, or string a bunch of them into a necklace or bracelet. The instructions include two variations, Dolce Grande, a slightly bigger, more complex version, and Dolce Piccolo, a sightly smaller and simpler version. Use right angle weave to create the oval base beaded bead which gets its shape by varying the sizes of the beads used, then decorate, embellish and strengthen by stitching a latticework of seed beads in a variety of colours. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY good needle and thread skills right angle weave SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Dolce Piccolo: just under 1" x .6" Dolce Grande: just over 1" x .75"

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!
