After doing bead shows on both sides of the border since 2003, Maria is retiring her kits and her stash. Some kit styles have been sold out.
The Kits shown in this Catalogue are available in limited quantities. Some styles may be custom made into a kit order upon request.
Maria's claim-to-fame is her clearly illustrated step-by-step instructions. They are included in kits but are also sold separately as patterns.
Illustrated step-by-step instructions with Supply Lists are available two ways:
• Downloadable Patterns offers several netted styles as a convenient online purchase, thanks to collaboration with A Needle Pulling Thread.
• More Patterns has more techniques and style variations on four pages of the Catalogue. These are ideal if you have a specific look in mind but need some direction to easily bead a neckpiece or bracelet. Order these by email or by phone.
Rypan Designs ’ Beadwork Lesson Books are a great reference for beadwork techniques. There are two books about netting. The first takes you from the very basic to the more complex straight netting designs. The second adds increases, decreases and ‘V ’ -shapes to the designs.
The two Assorted Beadwork books offer a variety of designs from the very simple, that would be great with the many textured beads now available and progresses to some exclusive designs. This includes diagonal weave, adding swags, Gothic Drape series and earrings.
