January has seen me continue with the big reorganisation of beads in the hope they are easier to find and reclaim study space.......it is still a work in progress!
The last update from Etsy looks promising - and once they publish the fee structure - I will relist tutorials. I still intend to develop my own website in the summer vacation!
I am in the process of negotiating beading classes locally and will let you know the details once dates are finalised.
Do put the last weekends of July and November in the diary - I will be at Brancepeth Castle again this year.
I've recently completed two gorgeous designs from EridhanCreations. I did start with the Polaris Pendant........but my killer tension got the better of me. Justyna suggested I start with Desert Rose as this started to twist earlier - Kiss from a Rose was completed for the monthly OTTBS Challenge.
I revisited the Polaris design with a much lighter tension and an unusual combination for me! The Preciosa medium vitrail 18mm rivoli didn't work with the brown combination - so instead an iris combination was selected that picked out the purple, green and gold of the focal. The bail was created from a vintaj connector. Love the complexity of the design and both designs gave me a real feel for how twisted peyote stitch works. Instructions were well written and easy to follow.
