One bead at a time........

I've been using beads to make jewellery for many years, and around 10 years ago I discovered beadweaving and an occasional hobby became an obsession. Time for beading is limited, with 2 boys and a ‘normal’ job, but this shop gives me an excuse to find the time.

Custom orders of most of the items shown including cabochons are available - any size and most colours (subject to availability of materials), please message me to discuss prices and timings. And I'm open to commissions of any other beadwoven pieces - please just ask.

For the beadweavers out there I offer tutorials for a range of beadweaving projects using a variety of techniques, all designed by me. The instructions include diagrams, photos and full written steps. Also included are sample colour schemes and other suggested variations, along with materials lists which include suggested sources for any unusual items. Instructions for downloading your tutorial will be sent to you by Etsy as soon as they detect a cleared payment.

Materials packs offer you all of the beads needed to make one of my beadweaving projects, plus any other vital items like the plastic tape measures for my Baroque Tape Measure Surround. Please note that the tutorials are not included with the Materials Packs (unless otherwise stated), neither are thread, needles etc (as I find every beader prefers a different combination of brands and sizes, and usually has plenty of both anyway).

Component packs offer the hard to find items for my bead embroidered projects - like the Materials packs they don’t include the tutorial (which must be purchased separately), needle or thread, and also don’t include beads - that’s because the designs I make them for use beads in very small quantities, so you’d end up paying silly amounts for me to measure out and pack them, when you probably already have something suitable in your stash.

A range of finished pieces is available for UK buyers in my Folksy shop ( And if you'd like to learn more about how I bead and why, have a look at my blog The Indecisive Beader (

Frequently asked questions
Can I make things to sell using a tutorial I've purchased from you?

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. If you’re in any way tempted to be naughty then think about how long it took me to devise and develop this design, including how many times I had to unpick and rework it (not to mention how long it took me to learn how to use the software to make the lovely clear tutorial diagrams). Thank you!

How are your items sent?

Tutorials - are downloaded by you via Etsy's download service - Etsy will send you a mail with instructions once you've paid.
