Giveaway: Beaded Strawberry Tutorial

Chocolate Strawberry Pendant by The Sage's Cupboard

Today’s necklace-a-day design is a recreation of my Promise of Summer pendant. I’ve been meaning to make another variation on the beaded strawberry, and this time I paired it with yummy chocolate browns. I was also able to use up the last of my Fire Designs cane glass, which is a big relief. They’ve always been one of my favorite bead styles, but I never know what to do with them.

While I was creating this pendant, I took some step-by-step photos and put together a brand new beading tutorial. I think these strawberry beads would also make fantastic Christmas ornaments, so I’m going to give away one PDF copy of the tutorial to a lucky beader!

How to Enter:
