Materials and Techniques

If you like the look of this project, you're going to want to know a bit about the materials and techniques before you commit to it.


Techniques

You are going to be working mainly in Peyote stitch. Don't worry if this is a new technique, or if you've never done it with Superduos before... That's the point of this tutorial - to teach you a new skill!

I will be demonstrating all the steps on video. So, you don't just need to rely on the written instructions. I've explained everything clearly and included lots of handy tips along the way.

You will also learn how to bezel a rivoli. Again, I've demonstrated everything on video, so it doesn't matter what level of experience you have currently. You will be able to do this!


Materials

Here is the materials list. So, you can see what you need before you commit. You may well find you have a lot of these beads in your stash already.

I have explained the colour combinations I chose - you'll find that explanation in the tutorial, once you enrol on the course.

For now, I just want to give you links to a couple of shops where you can buy these materials if you need to.

Links for US Beaders

If you like to shop in a US store, this link will take you to a great place for getting Superduos. The same store also sells the seed beads and rivolis you will need. Click here to start browsing for beads.

Links for EU Beaders

If you live outside the US and are happy shopping in the EU, then this link will take you to my recommended European supplier. Again, you can get all the materials from here. So, click this link to start browsing.
