PATTERN DETAILS

These charming little stars can be used singly as earrings, in groups as a pendant, or joined together to make a necklace. I used size 11 seeds to make mine, but you could use cylinder beads, or size 15s for a really tiny star. The instructions contain graphs for two different stripe patterns, but once you are familiar with the way the patterns form as you join the shapes that comprise each little star, they can be your canvas for other designs and colours. This is an exercise in tension control: if your tension is loose, your stars will lie quite flat, but really tight tension will give you more dimensionality. It's also a great way to use up very small amounts of left-over beads. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY peyote stitch good tension control SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Stars are about an inch and a quarter across

Recommended with this pattern

  • Japanese size 11 seed beads, 2 colours, small amounts
  • Size 8 seed beads (1 per star)
  • Jump rings or earring findings or bail or chain

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!
