A tutorial for my Baroque Tape Measure Surround. This uses circular peyote, netting and embellishment to transform a simple plastic retractable tape measure into something rather splendid. Will suit intermediate to advanced level beaders who have experience with peyote and netting.
The seventeen page tutorial contains a full materials list, with suggestions for colour schemes, and every step is fully illustrated with a detailed diagram showing thread paths etc, as well as being written out clearly (in English).

You will need:
2 14mm Round Rivolis
Size 15 Seed Beads in one colour, Size 11 Seed Beads in two colours
3mm Fire Polished Beads, 4mm Round Beads, 2.8mm Drop Beads, 3mm Bicone Crystals
Tape Measure, 50mm diameter, 10mm thick.
Beadweaving needles, thread of your choice, scissors.

Exact requirements (number/weight of beads) are given on my website here - theindecisivebeader.com/requirements-for-my-tutorials/.
Please note that I always use Miyuki seed beads for this pattern - it has not been tested with Toho seeds or other brands, so I can't guarantee a fit if you choose to use those as seeds. I also use Swarovski Rivolis- other brands can be much thicker so won't fit the bezel - but any brand seems to work for the fire polished, rounds and bicones. Please also note that the drop beads are 2.8mm Miyuki, not the other Miyuki size of 3.4mm (which have much larger stalks).

I also sell Materials Packs for this design which contain all of the beads you will need, plus the tape measure - https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/565993017/materials-pack-for-baroque-tape-measure

The tutorial will available through Etsy for you to download as a PDF as soon as possible after Etsy detects a cleared payment.

As a beader who designs and sells largely to support my own out of control bead buying habit, you may make from my tutorials to sell (in small quantities only) so you can buy lots more beads (and tutorials), but please ensure you give me full credit as designer.
Please do respect my rights as a designer and do not pass finished pieces off as your own design, teach the design, or reproduce this tutorial or the images in it in any way. Please see my FAQs for further details. Thank you!
