Ocean Waves

Ocean Waves

Ocean Waves is a necklace that's easy to make but hard not to love. It seems to be alive with undulating waves that are made up of beads and other precious bits all floating along with a few small surprises (four adorable little lamp work fishies) caught in the current. Learn progressive netting and while making this necklace you will also learn how to create the precious little fish that's happily riding the breaker as well as the foaming necklace. A basic knowledge of peyote stitch will be helpful while making the fish portion of the necklace.

Additional Supplies Required: Small sharp scissors, bee's wax, clear nail polish

Dynamic Duo's

Dynamic Duo's

Learn how to make a gently twisting Ndebele necklace cord and a 2-drop peyote stitch while making this most charming necklace. The main portion of the necklace takes on the look of Herringbone stitch (Ndebele) but is done in 2-drop peyote stitch. The kit is packed with Super Duo's and a contrasting seed bead color for a most dramatic look. This is a fabulous necklace made even better by adding the special lamp work bead set that was made especially for this necklace. Look for them on our "Bead Sets" page. NOTE: I have changed the clasp portion of this necklace to an S hook and jump rings.

Additional Supplies Required: Small sharp scissors, bee's wax, clear nail polish

Moon Beams

Moon Beams

If you have never done beading in the past this is a fabulous project to help you get started. If you are an experienced beader you will be fascinated at how the Moon Beams come together to make a sparkly necklace in such a short time. This will also give you a taste of using Twin Beads. I’m sure this project will inspire you to put the Twins together in new ways for your future projects.

Additional Supplies Required: Small sharp scissors, clear nail polish, two chain nose or flat nose pliers.

Cascading Autumn Leaves

Cascading Autumn Leaves

Learn to make Russian Leaves the easy way. With step-by-step photos you’ll have no problem learning this method. Cascading Autumn Leaves is certain to be your favorite show stopper piece. The leaves require peyote stitch but even if you have never tried the stitch before I'm sure you will have great success with this technique. You’ll also learn how to make the tightly twisted Ndebele necklace strap upon which your Russian leaves will hang. This kit is loaded with Delica beads in the many shades of Autumn plus the size 15 beads for the leaf vains, Delica beads for the Ndebele cord, gold filled S hook and jump rings. Threads, needle and bee's wax are also included.

Additional Supplies Required: Small sharp scissors, clear nail polish.

Leapin' Leopard

Leapin' Leopard

You probably know how to use a graph to follow a peyote stitch pattern. This kit will introduce you to the traditional Japanese method - no graph. It's a much faster technique that's fun to learn. And when you're through, you'll be sporting a unique animal print bracelet. The bracelet has shorter tabs at the clasp for an absolutely perfect fit without interupting the leopard pattern. The clasp in the kit is slightly different from my sample and is a better fit for the bracelet.

Additional Supplies Required: Small sharp scissors, Bee's wax, Clear nail polish

Rain Forest Morning

Rain Forest Morning

The braid used to make the Rain Forest Morning is a most unique and inventive kumihimo braid. When completed, it will seem as though strands of interior beads are caged inside of an exterior braid and the color way is reversed for the second side. A second braid is added to make the twisted vine upon which the sloth lazily hangs. This kit INCLUDES the tagua nut focal piece. The normal price for the focal is almost as much as this fabulous kit. There are lots of fun embellishments to show off the focal area. The kit has all of the required beads and then some (in case you don't know when to stop embellishing like me), the tagua nut creature, threads, pewter end caps and sterling S hook. Of course, I have included the needles and bee's wax, too. When you choose this kit I'll send you close up photos of the available tagua nuts for you to choose you own personal favorite.

Additional Supplies Required: Small sharp scissors, tape measure, New super glue or Hypo glue, marudai braiding table, twelve 85 gram tama (bobbins), small drawstring bag, weights for the bag equaling about 510 grams, ½ roll of quarters, utility “S” hook, chop stick.

Bead It Braid It

Bead It Braid It

This piece was featured in Bead & Button magazine under the name Textured & Twisted. I call this technique "Speedy Looming" because that's exactly what it is. Beads are placed onto the warp threads before the loom is dressed and that's what allows you to move along very quickly. You will learn the technique of looming a row and then bringing in a bead from the warp threads. The process is twice as fast as normal looming and twice as sparkly since the beads end up in two different directions. How good is that? After you have completed the bead looming you will learn how to do the Mystery Braid technique. . The kit is packed with Delica beads, thread, needle, and a beautiful clasp. Did I say that the finishing is super easy? No threads to sew in!

Additional Supplies Required: Loom (shown on the Supplies page), Small sharp scissors, E600 glue, toothpicks
