Today I am releasing project #2 for my bead-a-long book series.
Last week, I introduced Spring Blossoms as the ultimate beginner’s project because it’s fast and it gets you familiar with three of the most used French beading techniques: Continuous loops, Continuous Wrap-around loops, and the Basic Frame.
In this week’s project for Small Daisy, it’s a continuation from the same concept but we’re adding on two techniques in the mix. If you haven’t watched last week’s video yet, do that first as this project builds on from the knowledge from that project.
To get a copy of my book, you can buy directly from me for an signed copy or any other major book retailer. For the time being, I am making the book available through the Kindle Unlimited Program. You can sign up for a 30 day free trial to read it for free. I want to make it easy for beaders to have access to my patterns during the bead-a-long.
If you are overwhelmed with what materials to buy, I’ve made a kit available in my ETSY shop.
