Bead Journal Project: June 2013

June cabochon, finished
I chose herringbone stitch to make my June piece for the Bead Journal Project and found that it is really well-adapted to making stylized floral shapes.  I'm starting to really enjoy geometrics!


In progress

Additionally, at the end of last month I completed my third bead embroidery e-book, this one inspired by this very Bead Journal Project year!  I've called it Bored By Back Stitch, and it focuses on creating bead embroidery motifs from beadweaving stitches.




Bored By Back Stitch will teach you how to create twelve different bead embroidery motifs, using nine different beadweaving stitches.  Learn how beadweaving stitches can be morphed into beautiful bead embroidered motifs, created to surround and enhance your cabochons or accent beads.
The specific motifs you will learn are designs that use embroidered forms of basic peyote, Cellini spiral peyote, brick, Russian spiral, herringbone, chevron chain, right angle weave, square, African helix, and double or single St Petersburg chain.  In addition, there are step-by-step instructions for three projects to help you use your motifs.  The e-book is available now, 127 pages, $3.00 US.
