This fun and sorta weird steampunk-inspired bracelet has been retired from classes for a few years now, but I only just got a good layout on this tutorial. I last taught it at Bead & Button in 2015. Now its available for you to DIY!


You know, some days aren’t as good as others.  Yesterday was sort of a bummer, so I spent the afternoon making something purple with fringe.  I have to say that made me feel significantly better.


More heading to my Etsy tomorrow, but these Valentine’s Day Hearts have just been added to a new section of my shop.



Happy Holiday!

For anyone who thinks this is delightful, this drawing is done by Brian Kesinger and appears in his book Walking Your Octopus: A Guidebook to the Domesticated Cephalopod, available on Amazon.

Just added to Etsy!  The Riches of the Titanic beaded ornament or (huge) pendant.  Advanced level pattern.  Includes the layout of the fringe as well as the bauble.  I also have a few kits available in the colorways shown.




Its been a while since I put a free tutorial up on this site so I figured it was way past due. Here’s one I wrote in 2016 for the Starman Beads Trendsetters program.
