  • After purchase find your pattern in your pattern library.


Faceted Rondelles and shimmery fire-polished glass rounds are embellished with bugle beads and itty bitty seed beads to create elegant beaded beads. The finished piece resembles a geometric cage. Create two for an elegant pair of earrings or string a rope for an intricate necklace. The variations in color and design are endless. The bead is woven in 9 easy steps which I have fully illustrated in an 8 page PDF document. The instructions will include all the materials that you will need to create the Peacock version of this bead. The best part? You don't have to have any previous knowledge of beadweaving to create this pendant. The directions are clear and illustrated, so no prior knowledge is necessary. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY No prior skills are necessary, however it is helpful to have had some experience following a beadweaving pattern. This design does not build on any previous beadweaving stitch. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished beads measures just over 1.5 cm

My name is Marcie Abney Carroll and I started creating jewelry in 2007. A simple project to repair a simple beaded ring turned into a love of all things beadwoven and beaded in general. I've recently turned my attention toward metal and can be found most nights hammering away in my garage. If you'd like to learn more about me, please stop by my blog:
