Great tutorial. Easy download. Thank you!
It all started with a bead.
My ventures into jewelry making began with beads! As a teen, I liked to use a homemade bead loom to make barrettes. Later in life, I discovered off-loom bead weaving and I was hooked!
As I made things I realized I would never wear them all so I initially created this shop to sell my handcrafted jewelry. A few years ago, I began to teach beadweaving and now I publish and sell tutorials so others can learn to make my designs.
I am fortunate to have the opportunity to teach beadweaving, both through private classes and through tutorials. I plan to create more tutorials as time permits because my buyers really seem to like them!
I teach my designs at a wonderful local bead shop, Danish Princess Beads and Jewelry, LLC in Milton, FL. My designs are also taught in a few select shops in the northern US. I'm a very proud member of the Bead Mavens, a group of designers who also teach and serve as mentors in the beading community. We share helpful hints, tips and tricks and also publish free tutorials each month on our blog, BeadMavens.blogspot.com .
I'm a share sponsor with Mirrix Looms and a Mirrix Ware representative. I just adore my Mirrix loom and their community! I'm also an instructor at Wubbers University, an online jewelry school! I'm very happy to be working alongside some of my jewelry making idols and I'm thrilled to be associated with Wubbers. This year I've come so far and I'm extremely grateful.
Cabby loves to inspect my beads and metal bits! She also leaves lots of fur to pretty up the studio. :)
