Materials Packs for many of my published tutorials are usually available in my Etsy shop, however I’m not selling them at the moment owing to Coronavirus, so please contact me if you’d like me to reserve one for you in the meantime, and follow me on Facebook to be notified when I reopen.
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.
Squidy Component Pack
The semi precious cabochon, embroidery wires, hand dyed ribbons, chatons, backing and foundation required to make one of my Squidy Pendants or Decorations. These are the harder to source elements put together in a pack – you’ll just need to add your own seed beads etc and purchase the tutorial.
The pack includes a unique oval dyed agate cabochon, beautiful hand dyed silk ribbons, coloured ‘goldwork’ wires (please note these are not actual gold), pieces of Nicoles’ Bead Backing & Ultrasuede. You can select the individual cabochon for the colourway of your choice from the drop down (use the letters in the pictures to identify them).
Please note that you will need to add your own beads – the quantities used in this piece are so small I’ve not included them in this pack so that you can source them from your stash and keep the price down.
Christmas Tree Brooch
The sequins, Miyuki beads, brooch back, Ultrasuede and Nicole’s Bead Backing required to make one of my Christmas Tree 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.

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.
