Materials and Techniques

You will need Cylinder beads in a range of colours to make this beaded box. So, you have a choice of using:

  • Size 10/0 Miyuki Delicas (that's what I used - the slightly larger size makes them easier to work with)
  • Size 11/0 Miyuki Delicas (will also work really well, and create a slightly smaller box)
  • Size 11/0 TOHO AIKO beads (if you like TOHO brand, these will work well for this project)

So, pick your favourites and enjoy! You will also need your favourite beading thread.

You are going to be working in Peyote stitch. The videos will guide you through, but you will find it helpful if you already have some previous experience of circular and tubular Peyote.

The finished box gives you seven compartments. To discover more, take a look at the introduction to the class below.

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
