My crafts web page

I just put up a web page with links to photos of a lot of my craft stuff (beading/wirework/crochet). I'm still working on it. Suggestions and comments welcome.

I like the star cluster!

I found that I get really good 'photos' of my beadwork by laying it right out on the scanner, and scanning it. Cameras often don't do the detail justice, though your close-ups are pretty disctinct.

Thank you! The beaded clusters are inspiring.... I'll just have to have a try at them myself... I have the magazine, now all I need is the courage. ;-)

Just one warning: There is a mistake in the instructions. I'll try to find the magazine later tonight and let you know exactly which step it's in.

Corrections to "Woven Star Clusters"
In step 4, in the sentence where it says "Use the right needle to string 1 size 8, 1B, and 1 size 8," it should be 1A, not 1B. (The associated Figure 4 is correct, showing a total of 6B and 6A.)

Also, Figures 6 and 7 show a size 8 bead in the very center, but there are no instructions for putting one there. It's easy enough to put one there between steps 4 and 5, though.

Re: Corrections to "Woven Star Clusters"
I also sent the corrections to the magazine's editorial department; we'll see if they appear in the magazine's corrections web page.

Re: Corrections to "Woven Star Clusters"
Good idea.... it will be interesting if they publish the corrections.

Re: Corrections to "Woven Star Clusters"
I succeeded in making one.... even varied the beads and it still worked.... thanks to your correction.... I will probably post it in beadwork later when I've had a chance to get a picture.

Re: Corrections to "Woven Star Clusters"
The instruction for putting the bead in the centre is in step 8, only they use an A bead.... which the ones on the next page have.

I'm loving it!! (The link to "Alphabet Bead and Plastic Bead Necklace " isn't working for me.)

Lovely work, Stef.

Correct! Thanks.

Would you rather be identified in some other way as my teacher for Byzantine Chain?

Nah, I'm not feeling picky today. If you'd prefer to use my real name or anything, feel free. Thanks for checking.

Nice work!

Call me silly, but I think your buddha earrings are among my favorite pieces. (-:
