Allow me to guide you to the True North earrings – an easy way to use up your bead stash!
A pair of earrings takes less than 300 beads (about 1.5 grams) in each color of Delicas and about 150 ~ 15/0 Seed Beads. The only beads you might need to buy are 2mm Pearls, BUT you could use an 11/0 Seed Bead if you want. All this is outlined in the Video: Selecting Bead Colors as part of the Teachable course. And don’t forget… The first 25 students to use the coupon code NORTH25 get a $5 discount at checkout!
These earrings are quick to make, and I think they would be great sales items for a “Crafts Fair”. As a result, I’ve changed my disclaimer to allow sales with my written permission… So, if you’d like to make and sell these items, please contact me for permission. I’d like to know where/when you’d be selling, and if you are selling for a particular cause. I’d appreciate NO online sales but would be willing to look at your circumstances.
Many thanks to those of you who have enrolled in Stella Prisma! I’m expecting that I’ll have more photos to add to the Student Gallery soon. For now, take a look at Betty Riggle’s beautiful “Simple Two Color” from the Bonus Project that she modified to add an 8mm chaton to the center! So many possibilities…
And speaking of possibilities, I’m working on a private class exclusively for Stella Prisma students to include some graphic patterns. It will be similar to the class add-on for Exploring Stella Nova. Not sure of the name of the course yet.
I’ve mentioned “Flora” in earlier posts… You can make a small pendant or earrings (as shown in the photo).
This class is almost ready for release. Just finishing up the written instructions and a few videos. As promised, it will be available in early September.

I’ve had a lot of friend requests to my personal FB account recently from many fellow beaders around the world. I’d like to direct you to like and follow my Karen Long Designs Facebook page instead. In general, I use my personal page for keeping in touch with my family, etc. and don’t usually post information about my beadwork and classes on it. Thank you for your understanding!
