This set is going to be a gift to my BEST PAL!   Grin Grin

It really glistens in the light, but hard to take a good pic!  Undecided

The gun metal color E beads around the pendant and fringe and seed beads around earrings is from a discontinued company.  Gick beads rest in peace!   Cry

I was inspired by Jeanette Shanigan.  She used porcupine quills cut to different lengths.  How cool is that?  (Big Book of Beautiful Beads)

I used two diff sizes of bugle beads.

Thanks everybody!!

Well, I am a high maintenance friend lol!!
Not sure you know what you are getting into lol  Roll Eyes

This is pretty simple, let me show ya step by step.....

I started with north, south, east and west with size 2 bugle beads.

Then in between with size 2 bugles(doing it this way, centers them better)

This row I did at a slight angle size 2 bugles (to the left of each "spoke")

Last row, I used size 5 bugles starting at each point and ending at the bottom of next set.


All the way around....

If you can thread a needle, you can do this!!!

Are you actually sewing the bugle beads to a piece of felt as you weave?  It's hard to tell in your tutorial! (black on black!)

It's a very clever piece for sure Smiley

Yes I am stitching to felt, and using black nymo thread.   Sorry about the black on black.  I know it would show better in pics if a more contrast color felt and thread was used.  In person the matte felt and the sparkle of beads contrast wonderfully even though same color.
I was hoping the flash of camera would be enough to see what I was trying to show.   Undecided
