  Enroll in Class

  • Do you want to know how to add a seed bead bezel to a rivoli?
  • How about adding a seed bead bezel to a cabochon?
  • Would you like to learn a technique you can use for bezelling around a square or oval cabochon?

If you said 'yes' to any of those questions, you're in the right place.

I'll be using video demonstrations and written instructions to show you a simple bead-weaving technique that will do all these things.

Enjoy access to personal tuition from me. So, if you have questions or need help with your specific project, you can just ask. That includes adding photos, so I can help you correct mistakes or help you understand areas with which you are struggling.

Download and keep the PDF instructions, so you can also work offline, or any time you're away from your computer.

You can follow along at your own pace. So, no pressure to keep up with me or anyone else.

You also get lifetime access, so you can return as often as you need.

Bead along with me, or just watch, then try the beading later.

I don't know if I can afford this course...

If you're concerned about the cost, I also have a free copy of this course which you can try out or use first. You don't get access to my help, or downloads that you can keep, but you still get to watch the videos and follow the written instructions on screen. As with this version, you can follow along at your own pace and you get lifetime access.

You can find the free version by clicking on the 'All Courses' link in the menu bar at the top of the screen.

Hi! I'm Katie and I'm here to help you become a better beader. Now, no matter whether you've just started out or you've been beading for a while, you probably come across things you don't understand or can't do.

So, that's where I come in. I've been beading since 2003. I was self-taught originally, so I'm pretty sure that whatever 'pain point' you're currently experiencing, it's something I've also faced and overcome. Which means I understand your frustration, but I can also help you to find a way through it.

My own beading experience covers a multitude of different techniques (beadweaving, French beading, bead embroidery and more!). I've published books, patterns in magazines, I even edited a beading magazine for 3 years! And I'm a qualified teacher.

All of that is very nice, but it's not what drives me. I am passionate about beading, in all its forms, and I want others to share that passion. So, my dream is to help more people, like you, to get the most out of their beading. That's why I set up the 'Become a Better Beader' group and why I started publishing beading courses. I've developed the courses specifically to address the things that people tell me they are struggling with. So, if there's something you find difficult, let me know about it.

You can also access hundreds of free informational blogs about beading and join the 'Better Beader' group at
