It was 2013 and I wanted to make a necklace with sea stars hanging on a herringbone rope to be part of my collection that would be for sale at FAB2014.
I thought it would be easy to get a project from the Internet, but it didn't work that way. All tutorials I found wouldn't come up with the shape I expected. After three or four times trying, I gave up and decided to create one myself, with the idea to have it as close as possible to the real sea animal shape.
After a couple weeks trying this trying that, my very own Sea Star was created, and I am happy to share it with you.
It is 4 pages step by step tutorial, with photos and diagrams easy to follow to make your own piece.
You may check on several reviews left for buyers about this tutorial. Also, I have other patterns published on Bead & Button Magazine and two more published in Europe, Poland.

If for some reason your Sea Star doesn't get a beautiful shape, you are welcome to message me with good pictures from both sides, telling me what seed beads you used, and I will be happy to give you assistance.

I will be happy to answer all of your questions to avoid that you don't get what you expect.
Sorry, but I can not accept return for tutorial and/or kits. I count on your understanding.

You may sell items you make from my tutorials as long as you're not going into mass production.
I do appreciate being given credit for the design.
Please do not share, copy, sell, or otherwise distribute this tutorial as it is a violation of my copyright.
I do not allow teaching of my designs without discussion and arrangement with me.
If we all behave ethically the bead world stays a happy place.

Please, read the reviews.

I finally figured out this pattern. I would have liked a little more instruction ending this piece. That being said...I love the piece. It is a really cute pattern. I recommend making a practice piece first. Finished piece is beautiful!
