Description

This bundle contains 4 tutorials in one, detailing how to bezel a variety of spike beads.

I have used unusual colours to make the bead placement easier to see in the photographs. As you do your own bezels I would recommend that both main colours and both contrast colours are the same: so you work in 11s and 15s in the same colour as the main beads and 11s and 15s as the same colour as the contrast beads.

Once you have mastered the main bezel it can be played with in lots of ways. Just let your imagination take over. Gaps can be filled with tiny pearls or drop beads; the bezel can extend way beyond the spike; the bezel can continue into a lariat necklace; the options are as limitless as your creativity.

The bezelled spikes can be used alone on a pendant, keyring or bag charm. A pair can be made into striking earrings. They can also be grouped for a more dramatic piece clustered together on a chain or spaced out along the length of a chain. Have fun and play!

Materials - these vary according to the pattern used

Acrylic spike – 4mm by 30mm approx. or 7mm by 17mm Czech Spike bead or Spike bead – 15mm by 9mm acrylic approx. or 12 by 18mm and made of Czech glass.

matching size 11 and size 15 main colour beads
matching size 11 and size 15 contrast beads
1 size 8 bead
3.4mm drop beads for some versions
2mm pearls or size 8 beads for some versions
1.5m fireline
beading needle
appropriate findings

I am happy for you to sell items made using the tutorial locally, in galleries and at local craft fairs. I do not permit the selling of items made using the tutorial on the internet. I also do not permit mass production of items made using the tutorial. Please credit me as the designer.

Please note, the pattern is written in ENGLISH only. The photographs are clear and detailed so many beaders will manage to create pieces using the photographs alone.
