Learn it. Make it. CRAFTSY!

I am excited to announce I am now an instructor on Craftsy.com! CLICK HERE to review and sign up for my class: Essential Seed Bead Techniques

In several lessons I take you through the basics of five popular stitches and variations: even and odd count peyote, tubular peyote, flat brick stitch with increase and decrease, circular brick stitch, flat right angle weave and faux cubic RAW, square stitch, flat and tubular herringbone... plus a special lesson on closures. Each lesson includes a finished piece of jewelry we bead through together.

Tubular peyote empowers you to make cool beaded beads.
If you're getting started or want to learn more, I hope you consider taking my class Essential Seed Bead Techniques .

Of course I use my Doodlebeads drawings to help make things clearer, in combination with watching actual stitching, step by step.
Faux cubic right angle weave is just a step beyond flat right angle weave.
