I’ve updated my “Beaded Lariat Rope” beading kit and pattern…

and now have them listed in my Etsy shop.  The rope is worked in right angle weave using Delicas and Japanese seed beads, but I’ve added some extra steps for embellishing it with exquisite little 15/0 charlotte beads.  A bit of wirework instruction is also included in the pattern – you’ll learn in four easy steps how to make your own sterling silver “S” hooks!   The “S” hooks attach to the ends of the rope and from them you can suspend charms, focal beads, or all manner of treasure you have on hand.  Please note that instructions for making the fine silver metal clay and resin pendant shown on my rope in the photo are not included.  I haven’t yet designed a pattern that shows directions for creating a piece using resin, but I will probably offer one eventually.   I make no promise of when this will happen, but it’s something to look forward to!
