Christmas 2019 Secret Beadalong

Phew - it's nearly that time of year again!

If you want to add some excitement, anticipation, secrecy, community & fun to your beading then this is the perfect project for you.

The Christmas 2019 Secret Beadalong has multiple options for you depending on your budget, how big & bold you want to go and the speed you want to bead (generally it is around 30-60 minutes a day).

Without giving too much way this is a single or double-sided ornament or pendant with optional extras...

This project is intermediate and you need to be comfortable with peyote stitch. The instructions you'll be sent won't have a photo of the finished item as it's a complete surprise...

The full requirements list is not complicated and only contains items you should easily be able to find (or which may already be in your stash). The general requirements are:

  • One or two x 27mm Swarovski Crown Stone #1201
  • Eight or Sixteen x Swarovski 8mm (SS39) Chatons #1088 (plus 1-2 extra if you want extra sparkle!)
  • Size 15 Delica beads (won't be beaded into nearly as many times as they were back at Christmas 2016!)
  • Miyuki seed beads in sizes 15,11 and 8 (and I promise no size 15s in the rope!)
  • Beading needle and flexible thread of choice

As soon as you sign-up you'll automatically be sent your confirmation email and then the other emails will follow on after that (this all first needs me to activate it so there may be a small delay due to sleep/ time zones etc!)
If you want them sent to a different email address than what was used to purchase the pattern then just contact me to let me know).
