The Phoenix – Deco for the Holidays for Sale on Etsy for a few months

I really don’t have any of my tutorials for sale because I am still actively teaching my classes.  But, there were so many requests for the pattern for the beautiful red/gold holiday edition of the The Phoenix, that I decided to sell the tutorial on Etsy.

A few people have mentioned that the cost was more than they wanted to pay for a tutorial, however because I am still teaching this class, I cannot make it any lower.  I hope you’ll understand.  Once the instruction phase is over, I’ll be able to reduce the price.  But, right now, I want to have people come to my classes.

You can order for instant download at:  There are two PDF files: One is the tutorial, and the other is the Deco graphic pattern, which includes the bead numbers used in the red/gold colorway.

Please note!  you also get the graphs, bead numbers, etc. for the Plum and Black  colorways with the Deco graphic pattern.

As we get closer to Thanksgiving, please know that I am thankful to all of you for your support…  Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

The Phoenix “Rises Up” as a star!

Ever since designing The Phoenix pendants, I’ve been curious about how they’d look as a Star.  So, using the Rise Up pattern, I worked the first 14 rounds of the base square.  Then, I modified round 15 to be a Zip Row.  Oh, I changed the colors too!



I think the star is very interesting…  Try it for yourself with any of the Phoenix patterns!

And, be sure to send a photo that I can share in the Student Gallery.



If you haven’t taken The Phoenix class yet, there is one scheduled for Sunday, November 19th, from 1:00-4:00 PM at Sea of Beads.  You will need to call them to register, here is the link to their calendar for more information.

Hope to see you there!
