Note: Though the Beadalong week is now over it's never too late to join in on any of them and have fun! The pattern is always available for sale and people join in every day (and even years later) so dive in and enjoy. You can also find my other Summer Beadalongs here for 2015 and here for 2017. Plus my Christmas ones here for 2016, here for 2015 and here for 2014.
My Summer 2016 beadalong took place between the 30th July and 5th August (National Beading Week) but can be joined and beaded at any time.
Each day will take around an hour of beading to complete and there will be some preparation beading needed beforehand (the full requirements list and instructions will be sent to you as soon as you sign-up with each day's instructions following on hour by hour afterwards). The requirements list is not complicated and only contains items you should easily be able to find:
- Seed beads in sizes 15, 11 and 8
- Bicone crystals
- Fire-polished beads
- CzechMates Bricks
As always the project is a complete secret and is designed as a personal challenge for you. The only knowledge required is circular peyote stitch as everything else will be laid out step-by-step for you. The project is designed for all levels of beader and has brand new components and design ideas perfect to offer something new to any more advanced beaders.
You can follow the progress of the beadalong on my Secret Beadalong Facebook page.
If you own a bead shop or are part of a bead group and would like to join in, or just would like to devote a single day to the project, please contact me.
