Providing 21 pages of text with 113 illustrations, this bead pattern offers instructions that are easy to follow yet full of helpful tips. Color gradation is the focus of my Color Passages necklace. You learn to work smooth gradations of color in the cord and the two pendants. My beading design for this versatile necklace uses tubular and flat peyote stitch and brick stitch. Using my bead pattern, you peyote-stitch a cord, finishing with a beaded end cap in which you learn to decrease. You work the ruffled, brick-stitch pendant around a larger bead and create a second flat, brick-stitch pendant. Must be very comfortable with peyote stitch. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Be very comfortable with peyote and brick stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Size as required

I am a beader, beading kit designer, teacher, art quilter, fiber artist, writer, and editor. Playing with color is my passion. I have been beading for over 20 years and have taught nationally at Bead Fest and Bead and Button. I currently teach a national correspondence class on beading through the Embroiderer's Guild of America. In about 2009, I started making art quilts and fiber art. I had discovered thread painting and free motion quilting,and they are what drew me to those media. I love combining hand and machine work. I usually add beading to my art quilts and fiber art, most frequently bead embroidery. I also love embroidering with thread and yarns. I am now thread painting and free motion quilting much of my art too.
