Materials Packs

Materials Packs for many of my published tutorials are available in my Etsy shop.

Beads sent may vary very slightly from those shown in the photos, as sometimes I can’t get exactly the same ones, but they will always be just as lovely or even lovelier. 

Please note that the packs do not include the tutorial/instructions – you need to purchase these separately.

Please also note that needles and thread are not included, as I find every beader has slightly different preferences.

SunStar Brooch/Pendant

All of the beads, cabochon, backing, foundation and findings required to make one of my Sun Star Brooches.

The pack includes one of my hand painted cabochon, etched Czech daggers, Miyuki and Etched Czech seed beads, pieces of Nicoles’ Bead Backing & Ultrasuede, and a brooch back which also has a handy bail so you can wear this as either a brooch or as a pendant.

Oscar’s Bauble

£12, available from my Etsy Shop.  All of the beads you need to make a lovely bauble, with either Spikes or Gumdrops.  The pack includes Miyuki seed beads and either Czech Spike or Czech Gumdrop beads, plus either a chain or thin cord to hang your finished bauble.

Space Needle Case

£19 (long) or £17 (short), available from my Etsy Shop. All of the beads you need to make a totally awesome needle case.  The pack includes Miyuki seed beads in a variety of sizes, those hard to find 2.8mm drops, and two sumptuous Swarovski Rivolis, as well as the wooden needle case.

The pack includes Swarovski Rivolis; Swarovski or Preciosa Bicones; Miyuki seed beads and drops; Czech fire polished crystals and round beads.  

Below are some examples of Sold Out colourways to inspire you if you’re putting together your own beads – or let me know which ones you like and I’ll consider bringing them back for future packs.

  1. Hello Sarah –
    – and Happy New Year!
    I’ve just bought the tutorial for the Baroque Tape Measure Surround and wonder if you could put a materials pack together for me? Actually, it’s for a present for a friend who seems to be in a “black&pink” mood at the moment. I’m thinking that something combining “Pretty in Pink” and “Dark Metals” would be perfect. Is that a possibility?
    Many thanks.
    Jane Hartley.
