French Beaded Mini Tulip – Exploring Bead Finishes


Welcome to my February Bead-along! I’ve noticed that many people are uncomfortable choosing their own bead finishes for French Beaded Flowers. In this class we will be using my new Miniature Tulip pattern to explore the basics of using bead finishes in French Beaded Flowers. This is a guided experiment where you will have the opportunity to discover the bead finishes that you like to work with (and maybe some you don’t like). If you just want to make the tulips without experimenting with finishes, that’s perfectly fine too. 🙂

Class Format: Video + PDF
Start Date: February 1, 2022
End Date: February 28, 2022

This is the first bead-along I’ve run directly on my website! And it will be have the same rules as the bead-alongs that I host on Facebook. To participate you will need to create an account on my website and login before enrolling in the class. After you enroll, download the Materials List from the Resources tab so you can prepare for the class. The class materials may not be shared with anyone.

Class starts February 1st, so mark your calendars! Once or twice a week during the month I will post a new video lesson and accompanying PDF for that portion of the pattern. On February 1st, I will also be uploading a Class Schedule so you know what days to watch for new lessons, and a PDF packet on Exploring Bead Finishes so you can take notes while you work. You will be receiving emailed announcements and updates for the class. The announcements will contain some advertisements for my business as well (the trade-off for a free class). After the class is over, you will no longer receive any emails. If you miss any emails, you will be able to see the latest class news by clicking on the “Announcements” tab below.

Just like the bead-alongs I run on Facebook, the bead-along is free, but only for a limited amount of time. You will have until the end of February to enjoy the class. The videos will be pre-recorded and you can watch them at your leisure after they’ve been posted. Videos are not download-able. On March 1st, all students will be un-enrolled and will no longer have access to PDFs or videos. To keep it absolutely fair, no exceptions will be made under any circumstances. Make sure you have all the PDF downloads and watch all the videos before the end of the month! After the bead-along has ended it will no longer be free, and you will have to purchase it to have continued access.
