My sister, Diane Woodall, and I are proud to offer our step-by-step tutorial on how to make three of our Focal Sea Shells, just like the ones we have been selling for years on eBay and in our Etsy stores. Best of all, we are offering our tutorial in both right-handed and left-handed versions. Just let us know when you order which version you’d like.

Our tutorial is 26 pages long and includes 72 full-color step-by-step photos showing how to make three focal sized shells - Fan Shell, Conch Shell and Sand Dollar. We also included 13 gallery pictures to whet your appetite and spur your imagination!

Our instructions are very easy to follow and the tutorial is peppered with “oodles” of helpful tips that will make it even easier to make the beads.

In this tutorial we share with you all of our secrets so that you can create these three focal seashell beads just like the ones we make. We didn’t hold anything back. Everything we know about making these three particular focal seashell beads is in this tutorial.

You don’t need any special tools to make these beads, beyond a bead press, some basic shaping tools and a marver. Some beadmaking experience is recommended; however, we think that even beginners can learn a lot from our easy to follow instructions.

We both make our beads in the middle of the mandrel, so we've included step-by-step instructions on how we coat our mandrels, in case you want to give it a try. If you make your beads on the end of the mandrel you will still be able to get great results.

We will deliver our tutorial to you in PDF format (under 1MB), so all you need is Adobe Reader in order to open it and view it on your computer or print a copy for yourself. The photos have been optimized and the data compressed to allow for a much faster download. Because it is delivered directly to your computer, we cannot offer refunds. We do, however, believe that you will be completely satisfied with our tutorial and will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

Diane and I have a copyright on the contents of the tutorial, so we ask that you not distribute it in any way or make additional copies other than the one you make for your personal use. We thank you in advance for recognizing the value of the hard work that went into preparing this for you.
NOTE: We are also offering a Surf & Turf Special (a separate Etsy listing for ALL THREE TUTORIALS). If you buy all 3 of our tutorials – Small Shells, Focal Shells, and Animal Prints, your total will be $50 (a $10 savings).

Thank you, and Happy Beading!
