I love beading! :)

Why did I create the Blog, and YouTube Tutorials?

My parents have always taught me to share things with others. This is me sharing the talent of beading with all who are interested. I want to share this Talent I have learned with others, so they can learn too! I have it for display in hopes that I might be able to help and inspire others who are interested in beading! Because this way, others can make their own jewelry with out having to pay for it, and be proud that they did it themselves! :)
*Remember that people have their own ways of doing things, this is the way that I am comfortable beading.
** This is a hobby for me, it is something I do as a stress reliever and for fun.. all while putting my heart into it <3

Beaded Feather

My sister Marlenda graduated from College, and my brother had the great idea to give her an Eagle Feather! and he asked me to bead the tip, like totally last minute lol... First, I made some room down and the quill? tip of the feather, and then I wrapped a piece of buckskin around the barrel and sewed it closed. Then I sewed on some rhinestones down the middle of the barrel. After that, I wrapped it with beads making the design you see! :) It came out really pretty and she absolutely LOVED it! She was very honored and even cried .. 
So, here it is, Hope you like it..

Did you use the payote stitch or did you just wrap the beads around the quill? You said you wrapped it with beads but wasn't sure if you did a payote stitch or not.

Ps. I miss your vids!!

Wow, what a cool idea for Graduation. I like how you put rhinestones on it. I wish I knew how to do payote sticht. I just mess it up and then I run out of patience.:(
Love your work.

Wow. I love your YT sight. Could you possibly show how to make this? Also I might suggest slowing down or actually adding audio. Some of the vids are really difficult to follow at times.

You are very talented.
