New Beadweaving Tutorial - A versatile design for bracelets and earrings

Last night I published my latest beadweaving tutorial, "Stackers, Wrappers, and Double/Triple Deckers".

Stackers, Wrappers, and Double/Triple Deckers
a beadweaving tutorial by Sweet Freedom Designs

When I say this is a versatile pattern, I'm not kidding. It uses a 2-hole bead, which can be either a Superduo OR a Czechmates™ Brick OR a Czechmates™ lentil - all of which give it a different look. Plus, it calls for a 3mm bead, which can be an 8/0, an 11/0 triangle, a 3mm Swarovski crystal, etc. - really, so many different choices here.

The tutorial gives step-by-step instructions for skinny stacking bracelets, a yummy wrap bracelet (I'm wearing the one at top right, above, right now!), a "Double Decker", and a "Triple Decker" (seen at top left, above). There are also instructions for making earrings.

I will be getting some kits put together soon!
