My Jelly Tutorial, which was published in a summary version in last year’s Beadworker’s Guild Journal (86) is now available in my Etsy shop as a full 18 page tutorial.
Jelly uses a variety of bead embroidery, and goldwork embroidery techniques, including seeding, stacking, goldwork (or optional backstitch) and beaded edging to make a statement pendant, brooch or even a beautiful ornament, and she’d best suit intermediate bead weavers or bead embroiderers, or experienced embroiderers looking to learn some bead embroidery techniques. If you’re a beginner with some success with bead embroidery looking to stretch yourself this is probably easier than Squidy (another member of my sea creature family below), but not as easy as Sunstar.
She’s a really fun make, I’ve made four so far with beads picked out for one more already, and I hope you really enjoy her. Full bead lists are available as usual here if you’d like to check what’s in your stash before committing to a pattern purchase, and the tutorial itself is available here for instant PDF download.
