I'm jumping ahead in the seed bead stitching projects. I can't help myself though.
Beth Stone has two seed bead stitching books - with the second one appropriately titled More Seed Bead Stitching: Creative Variations on Traditional Techniques
. It has a lovely Daisy Chain necklace on the front and I had to try something similar. You can see it in the picture above, right in the middle - which is a little strange because the necklaces on my cover are exactly the same, but in a different order!

If you've read my jewelry making blog or prior reviews, you know I mainly make wire and gemstone jewelry. But I've always been fascinated by woven bead jewelry especially the lovely earrings by Miguel Ases that are becoming more popular. I'd like to learn how to make something similar. But, I'd also like to understand the stitches used in seed beading to help with my wire wrap work.
