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

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

Wishbone Bracelet

Wishbone Bracelet

I’ve been a knitter all of my life and I am always looking for ways to create that same look with beads. This stitch looks just like a knitted wishbone cable stitch but I promise you it is all done with beadwork. Learn to twist the beads using Ndebele techniques. Also included are diagrams for four different ways to twist the beads for four really different looks. A little Ndebele experience will be helpful. She clasp in the kit is 2mm wider than the one I used on my sample. It looks really similar, though. I know you will be happy with it.

Soft Flex Twist

Soft Flex Twist

Learning how to use a kumihimo disk is great fun. It will enable you to make this twisted spiral using Soft Flex wire bracelet. It is the only way to achieve this effect. You will also learn how to make the attached twisted end caps. What makes this piece especially appealing is that, once learned, you can make more and attach all those special items in your stash that you’ve just been waiting to show off. Making this spiral as a longer piece for a necklace will be the perfect spiral upon which to hang all the wonderful pendants that you have made in classes or those that you have purchased. In any event it is a great technique to add to your repertoire.

Additional Supplies Required: Flush cut wire cutter, old scissors, round nose pliers, flat nose pliers, chain nose pliers, kumihimo disk, 16 no-tangle plastic bobbins, E6000, toothpick, blue painters tape, liver of sulfur (optional)

Crocheted Rope Bracelet

Crocheted Rope Bracelet

Using three different size beads you will learn to produce a most attractive bracelet. The spiraling pattern and the overall chunky effect make it a most unique accessory. But, perhaps most important, this crochet rope is so very simple to make that it’s an excellent starter project for the new beader. You need to know only two stitches – chain stitch and slip stitch – to create a truly stunning piece. I made the video shown below for a friend and customer in Wales. I do think you will find it most helpful. As a demonstration tool I used two colors of larger beads to show the technique. If you are having difficulty with the rope I would suggest that you do the same and practice just a bit.

Additional Supplies Required: Small sharp scissors, Fray Check, Size 14 crochet hook.
