I have added a new bracelet tutorial to my Etsy shop, as well, a design that came about while I was playing around with the stitches from Runway; Castles is available now in my Etsy shop, and is a really fun piece to make. I had wanted to bring the twin units together closely, and even have them sharing seed beads if I could, but when you get them that close, they tend to arch out and make circular shapes, so I stuck with the beads surrounding each twin bead - but I've used different sizes, so that they can lay next to each other snugly. I was thinking of crenellations and turrets the whole time I was stitching, lol - so that's where the name came from. It's also a great tutorial for those of you who may have just a few twins or super duos hanging around from a previous project, it only calls for 56 of them. For those of you who have been asking, you can now find some of the Superduos and Twin Beads at BeadStalkers, a new online shop co-owned by my friend Christina (Good Quill Hunting), as well as some other fabulous goodies. Castles brings my tutorial count in my shop up to nine - so I best get to working on number 10!
Happy Mother's Day to everyone who celebrates - wishing you love for the day and always!
