-seed beads - These can be 11° or 15° rocailles. It's easiest to make your first with 11° because you have a little more room to work. Avoid Delicas and other square cut beads for this, they don't look as nice or fit together as well.
- beading needles
- beading thread - I'm using O weight Nymo - you need a strong, smooth thread as you will need to pull it through a few beads at once during several different steps in the process.
- sharp scissors with a narrow point for neat thread trimming
11° seed beads make a finished bead about 1.5 inches | 3.8cm across.
15° seed beads make a finished bead about 1 inch | 2.5cm across.
This is definitely an advanced project. You should be comfortable with peyote stitch (ideally at least some experience with flat round peyote). The project is documented with both diagrams and photos, so you have different ways of understanding the steps.
