Providing 17 pages of text with 68 illustrations, this bead pattern offers instructions that are easy to follow yet full of helpful tips. My beading design for my Color Passages bracelet uses tubular, uneven-count peyote stitch. Using my bead pattern, you play with color while learning to create smooth gradations of color. First you learn some basics about the three characteristics of colorhue, value, and gradationand how these qualities affect your beadwork. Then you learn to peyote-stitch the cord, creating smooth gradations over its length. You also learn to create the beaded end cap and the decorative toggle for the clasp. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Be very comfortable with peyote 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.
