Baroque Tape Measure Surround
This uses circular peyote, netting and embellishment to transform a simple plastic retractable tape measure into something rather splendid. Will suit intermediate to advanced level beaders who have experience with peyote and netting.
Space Needle Case
This uses right angle weave, circular peyote, and embellishment to transform a simple wooden needle case into something rather splendid. Will suit intermediate level beaders who have experience with RAW and peyote, and who have a good control of thread tension.
Cellini Rick Rack Ninja Star
A tutorial for my Cellini Rick Rack Ninja Star. This uses peyote stitch to create a zig zag round which is then doubled and finally formed into a star. Will suit intermediate/advanced level beaders who already have experience with cellini peyote, and who have a good control of thread tension, and it’s an advantage to have worked with Jean Power’s Rick Rack technique and/or be able to work from a casting pod or strip. Please note this tutorial is definitely not suitable for beginner beaders – it has a life of it’s own and it’s best to get more experience before attempting the start in particular.

It’s a bead embroidered component in three sizes which can be used separately or together to make a Pendant, Necklace, Brooch, Earrings or Ornament. It uses a variety of bead embroidery embroidery techniques with optional goldwork, and will suit intermediate bead weavers, bead embroiderers, or embroiderers looking to learn some bead embroidery techniques.

Great Ball of Spikes (or Gumdrops)
A ball of Czech spike beads or Czech gumdrops, held in place by a network of seed beads and Czech fire polished beads. The beaded ball is hollow and self supporting, and can be beaded in a couple of hours by a confident intermediate beader using Netting and Modified Right Angle Weave. This beaded bead forms one of a series of pieces which I made for a project called ‘Beading Beaded Beads’ which you can read about here.
This uses Modified Right Angle Weave (MRAW) and circular peyote to add a simple bezel to a Luna Soft or Polaris Cabochon, and to surround it with pairs of kissing Piggy beads. Will suit confident beginners who have experience with peyote and RAW, and who have mastered thread tension.
