I have been working on my video tutorial skills and came up with something new for you. For this video I used only my iPad and iMovie. It's not all that easy to bead when you have an iPad hanging over your beadwork. :)
I decided to try and come up with a fairly easy component that I could teach on this video. I had some mini daggers left over from making my Dagger Duo design, and I LOVE Mini Dagger beads because of the great textures you can achieve with them. I started with the new CzechMates QuadraTile and CzechMates Tile as the base and then just started adding on Mini Daggers to create this flowery component that I call Baby Blue Eyes.
This piece ended up being even better than I thought it would. The photos don't do it justice. It's super puffy with great texture, thanks to the QuadraTile! Linked together as a bracelet it's reminiscent of a Hawaiian Lei. I absolutely love this piece and I hope you love it too. I know that it would look fantastic in all different colors as well.
If you try this I'd love to see your version and hear your comments. Please feel free to share this video with all your friends! Make sure to give me credit on my design when you do! Thanks!
