Item details

The Atlantis Cuff Tutorial shows how I have used planning, embroidery, freeform peyote, freeform right angle weave and traditional bezeling techniques to create this cuff. It includes a section on basic freeform beadweaving in the beginning, the process used to create this particular cuff, and a gallery at the back which includes photos of my other pieces made with these techniques and notes on how they were made. Atlantis is different than my normal beading tutorials in that it IS NOT a step by step guide, but instead shows with full color photos and clear explanations, how the pieces were fitted together and how I completed my cuff - with the intent to demonstrate how to take these methods and make them your own.

Materials used in this cuff included bead soup (a great number of sizes and shapes and kinds of beads mixed together), ruler, paper, focal cabochon, 14mm rivolis, embroidery facing, ultra suede, beading thread, scissors and a copper tube clasp. Familiarity with bead embroidery and peyote stitch is a must - these stitches are not explained in detail!!!!

Atlantis is a 37 page PDF file. This is a large file, so please be patient while it loads.

Beading difficulty; intermediate.

Immediate download and great information. I've wanted to make a freeform piece for some years and this information has given me the confidence to start on it. As the author warns, this isn't a pattern. It's 37 pages of information on how to make your own freeform cuff. Well written, concise, detailed. She didn't miss a beat. Would definitely buy from her again. Thank you!
