Thanks so much! It took me a little, but you were not the only one to ask. I've now made both a set of patterns and a 7 pages full instruction booklet, both available on Etsy.

truly stunning work! the way you use the focal glass bead to unite both ends is also very ingenious & brings the design together. The colors also remind me of the sea & peacocks.

(T.T I gotta buy myself of a spool if nylon thread heck! Make it industrial sized if possible! XD)

Thanks so much! I'm really happy you like it. BTW, if you go for nylon thread, choose Sulky over Coates (Coates will rip much easier).

Yet another seaweed/sea slug masterpiece! The colors you chose are absolutely delicious, and I truly hope that you use them and a similar gradient in future pieces. The swirls in this particular glass bead are especially delicate and entrancing, something that your chosen colors echo with their pale, yet vivid hues. You haven't wrists enough for all of your treasures, surely!

Thanks so much! I find myself wearing this one a lot. The colors are just so juicy and happy. It's one of those pieces that will get you out of a funky mood as soon as you put it on...

Meant to ask is ndebele ripple a technique you discovered? I haven't heard of it before.

Actually, what set it off was this bracelet: [link] I already knew how to do ndebele, but reverse-engineering it from the photo gave me the idea of interspersing a weaving band of smaller beads among the "pillows" of larger beads and to stitch a peyote edge on. I've now taken it a step further having two undulating bands of smaller beads and a gradient of colors among the larger beads. Still I cannot claim the original idea.
