This is a tutorial for "Mira Star", a beaded truncated octahedron made from peyote warped hexagons. It can be a standalone piece or hung as an ornament - it certainly makes a spectacular hanging star!

It is suitable for intermediate to advanced beaders familiar with 1-drop and 2-drop peyote stitch and herringbone increases, as well as with maintaining a consistent tension and the construction of geometric beadwork.

Please note that this project will require a curved beading needle to deal with the very convex nature of the piece.

The finished beadwork shape will be approximately 8cm in diameter, and it uses approximately 28g of size 11 delicas in total.

The tutorial is 22 pages with 14 diagrams and more than 60 photographs. It contains a materials list for both colourways and instructions for making the individual hexagons as well as detailed instructions for assembling them into the dodecahedron.

If you have any questions or need any help please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please note that this is a digital file pdf tutorial only. As such no refunds can be given once purchased. No beads or completed beadwork are included in this item.

The pdf file size is approximately 10Mb.

Fantastic 3D ornament - looks so much more complicated that it is to bead. Tutorial is complete with plenty of graphs and explanations.

Excellent written pattern with diagrams to keep you on track. It is easy to follow. Love how this designer takes beads and turns them into mathematical masterpieces we can all make and enjoy. Thank you.
