Interweave Video Series Now Available

Interweave has just released my 4 part video series! Three of the four videos explore the Right Angle Weave variations I use in my book, Beadweaving Beyond the Basics: Faux RAW, Layered RAW, and Double Diamond RAW. The fourth video, Shape Shifter, goes in depth to teach a design method I use frequently, which results in a wide variety of projects from a single motif.

The first video covers Double Diamond Right Angle Weave and includes both video and pdf instructions to make the Dreamcatcher Pendant. http://bit.ly/1qocPWq

The second video explores Faux Right Angle Weave and includes video and pdf instructions for the Flutterby Bracelet. http://bit.ly/1UAnrhu

The third video explores Layered Right Angle Weave and includes video and pdf instructions for my Sliver Earrings. http://bit.ly/1qeJNJa

The fourth video, Shape Shifter, explains my method of designing multiple pieces from a single motif and includes video and pdf instructions for the Vintage Lace Bracelet. http://bit.ly/1RFfy4s

The DVD, available for preorder now, to be released later this month, includes all four videos and project pdf files. http://bit.ly/1X7tvvG

What I’ve Done Lately and What’s Coming Next

My latest pattern, Hexes and Os has been posted: http://beadingbutterfly.com/patterns-tutorials/hexes-and-os-bracelet-pattern-beadweaving-tutorial

While posting, I realized it had been quite a while since I blogged, so I thought I’d catch you up on what I’ve been doing lately.

Entwined is a Celtic inspired bracelet that uses Layered RAW, which is one of the techniques I explore in my book Beadweaving Beyond the Basics: http://beadingbutterfly.com/patterns-tutorials/entwined-bracelet-tutorial-layered-raw-and-faux-craw

Fold Me Up expands on another book project, Fee Fi Faux Fun, which uses a faux RAW technique in a diagonal variation: http://beadingbutterfly.com/patterns-tutorials/fold-me-up-bracelet-tutorial-diagonal-faux-right-angle-weave

Another Layered RAW piece that I made for Valentine’s Day is Mon Coeur: http://beadingbutterfly.com/patterns-tutorials/mon-coeur-heart-pendant-tutorial-layered-right-angle-weave-lraw

Once in a Blue Moon (this one is available for free): http://beadingbutterfly.com/patterns-tutorials/once-in-a-blue-moon-free-tutorial

The first piece in my Shape Shifter collection, Diamond Lattice uses a design technique I love to use (the second variation, Vintage Lace, will be released in April as part of a video series produced by Interweave Press): http://beadingbutterfly.com/patterns-tutorials/shape-shifter-diamond-lattice-variation-bracelet-tutorial

Slyther is a sturdy rope using SuperDuos and seed beads: http://beadingbutterfly.com/patterns-tutorials/slyther-beaded-rope-pattern-tutorialComing soon from Interweave (see all of my Interweave products here: http://bit.ly/1Xy2oya) in my 4 part video series are:

Dreamcatcher

Flutterby

Sliver

and Vintage LaceOne project will be included with each video, which are companions to my book. Each video corresponds to a chapter of the book, except for Shape Shifter, which is a look inside my design technique and how I wrote the book in the first place. There will be a DVD with all 4 videos included, plus kits for Shape Shifter (Vintage Lace).

Finally, one more thing I’m doing soon is an encore presentation of my webinar from last year, Drawing Bead Diagrams in Microsoft Word. That will be on the afternoon of April 19 and you can sign up here: https://www.craftonlineuniversity.com/courses/diy-bead-diagrams-how-to-draw-bead-charts-with-microsoft-word-web-seminar-04-19-2016

Book Preview and Exclusive Kit from Beadwork Magazine and Interweave

The upcoming Nov/Dec 2015 issue of Beadwork Magazine will contain a sample project, Palisades, from my book Beadweaving Beyond the Basics (available as an eBook here or as a physical copy preorder here). This project is the first one in the book and uses the right angle weave variation I call Double Diamond Right Angle Weave (DDRAW).

The magazine also has a limited number of kits for Palisades available, in the original colorway. The silverlined salmon seed beads as well as the gold seed beads are Miyuki Duracoat beads and the crystals are genuine Swarovski bicones in Jet AB2X.

The kit is available here and when you purchase, you will get the digital pattern immediately, even before the magazine is released!

Cosmos Beaded Bead Necklace – 2015 Workshop – Updated Colorway

Cosmos is a 2015 workshop project. Currently, I am scheduled to teach it in April at the South Jersey Bead Society. Because the coating on the crystals I used in the original colorway turned out not to be stable, I remade the piece using Duracoat seed beads and opaque non-coated Swarovski crystals.

If you would like me to teach this project at your bead society or bead retreat, please contact me.
