Here is the full-screen version of my popular video showing the basics of the new beading stitch known as Peyote with a Twist (PWAT) developed by Gerlinde Lenz. The video was created with her gracious permission.
The hardest part of cubic right-angle weave (CRAW) is getting started, as we all know. But now there's a new, reusable starter tool to get us going in no time at all! And not only is it good for CRAW, included in the kit are also starters for doing PRAW, or prismatic right-angle weave too! Invented and created by Diane Whiting - THANK YOU DIANE!! You can purchase your starter kit here: http://shop.jillwisemandesigns.com/praw-starter-tool-by-diane-whiting/
These are my favorite new clasps to finish off my flat worked beadweaving! Made by Elegant Elements, they have a sturdy plated finish and a smooth mechanism. And they're super easy to attach to your beadwork! This video shows you how... Please note: This was a "quickie" video shot on my iphone at my desk. A full-studio version (which means full-screen, etc.) will be filmed to replace it shortly. But I didn't want you to have to wait! The clasps can be found for purchase here: http://shop.jillwisemandesigns.com/beadslide-clasps/
The Om Tara® Best Scissors Ever are truly the best scissors!! These small serrated scissors are extremely sharp and can cut through all sizes of bead stringing wire, up to 20 gauge craft wire and even Kevlar thread with ease. The removable cap protects from the sharp points when the scissors are stored and not in use.
I love them!! and I know you will, too!
