Found Objects and Unusual Materials!

Yay!!  Chapter Four, "Found objects and unusual materials" is available for download starting today!  This will probably be the last chapter written for my e-book Every Bead Has a Story.  Today we're entering the magical world of found objects: chapter four is 82 pages long and covers more techniques that will enable you to tell a story better than ever before with your bead embroidery: wired elements, resin, buttons, hardware, liquid clay, silicone, and wool roving.  There are three step-by-step projects included that will help you get started integrating the texture and drama of mixed media objects into your bead embroidery.

Found Objects and Unusual Materials is priced at $3.  The first chapter, Bead Embroidery Stitches, will continue to be a free download.  You can find information on all the chapters on my e-Book page

I wonder how many great tips you've packed into this chapter, Cyndi.

The best one I've ever read is what you found to make the resin cast cabochon bracelet you shared a while ago.

Absolutely brilliant!

Ahhh, the sliding door hardware! Yeah, those were a really fortunate find :-)
The sliding door hardware was pretty cool... but then again, everything you do is always amazing! I happen to love that moon...

You give such amazing tips, Cyndi. I love these posts where you use stuff we have or probably have found, and yet never thought to use in something like this. You're always giving me ideas. Nice! Looks like another great chapter from your ebook.

Those are some pretty goodies! That pendant piece looks beautiful.
Hi Cyndi,

Thank you for another phenomenal chapter! The ideas, the projects, and the bonus gallery at the end are so inspiring.

Fantastic job in every way. I've shared it with my newsletter readers as a highly recommended resource.
