Just Updated! If Money Grew On Trees Soutache and Bead Tutorial

I got sidetracked from my goal of reworking tutorials because special orders took front row placement.  But I finally got an updated beading pattern finished.

Now I'm sort of out of order, though - some of the ones earlier in the alphabet need whole new samples in addition to rewriting them!  Here is an easy soutache project for you... and I also have kits available!

Just released to Etsy! A new Cosmic Burst Pendant Tutorial. The kit is also available. And here's something unusual for me. Its in the same color as the photographed piece (more colors coming tomorrow).

 This tutorial was featured in the Bead & Button April 2016 edition. But if you just want the tutorial, here it is, available for instant download. There are also kits available - I'll be loading them up in the next little while. Use Right Angle Weave, Square Stitch, Czech multihole beads, crystal and seed beads to make your own version of this handbeaded pendant or ornament.

Just Updated Beading Tutorial - The Champagne Dreams Pendant or Necklace

Updating this tutorial was a struggle, not because it was in bad shape but because I've made (and sold) so many of this sample that I just wanted to get through it.  This is the first time I've extended it from a single-jewel pendant into a necklace, however.  I love the way the project turned out so it was worth it in the end.  As a side note, the glimmer of copper lined crystal beads is hard to handle when you need new glasses and its late at night.

Newly Released Beading Pattern - Dani's Dragons: The Dragon Scale Bracelet!

Newly Updated Beading Tutorial - The Flower Girl Bracelet

This wasn't so bad, but it had some typos and I cleaned up the layout. Moving right long with my goal to update ALL of my existing tutorials and release at least 10 new ones!
