Bead Journal Project: July 2013

July cabochon, finished
I chose chevron stitch to make my July piece for the Bead Journal Project and ended up loving all the open spaces this stitch creates!  There's lots of room to tuck pretty accent beads all around the design. 

I've used this stitch a few more times since I worked out the count and how to make it into an embroidered stitch.  Below is part of a free form piece I've been working on:

The original motif at the top appears on the cover of (and inside of) Bored By Back Stitch, my recently launched e-book

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.
