Summer Bead Loom Cuff Class!




I am very excited to share the Exclusive Cuff Patterns, being offered, for my next class, at Bead Soup....June 13th & 20th. This class will offer many techniques to the beginner, as well as learning to attach the 'crunchie clasp',
(also known as the ribbon end). 

The cuff pattern choices are "Summer Dawn", "Summer Dusk", some are going to complete both :D ! Call the store if you are interested, 240-456-4568.

I just wish I could offer the way the bead finishes react and come to life, in these two cuffs,
by the bead finishes/styles I incorporated. These pictures do not do them justice.

"Carousel Cuff Go Round", Published Pattern!


I was asked to contribute a Bead Loom Cuff Pattern, 
to BEAD Magazine, UK, months ago. 
Their theme, for Issue 62, was 'Movement'. I got started creating a 
pattern to offer such a theme, too,.....A Carousel!


The pattern starts and ends, on each side, 
with only a portion of the Horse, being shown. 
This design concept helps to offer the 'go-round' aspect, 
of this cuff design. 

As included in my article,
bronze findings can be added to either the clasp or
as dangling charms. 

The cuff is also included as an inset, on the cover. 


Be sure to pick up Issue 62, of BEAD Magazine UK,
in either Print Form, or Digital Versions.
(Scroll down the link page, to see purchase options.)

Included are many tips and techniques,
never offered outside of my classroom, before.
Also true is the fact this cuff pattern shares more instructive insight,
than can be seen, in any other publication, to date!

I hope you enjoy recreating this cuff, as much as 
I enjoyed knowing it would be shared, 
with so many bead loom artists.
