In this not-so-prickly project you’ll learn how to bead several variations of miniature cacti, just perfect for charms or earrings, as well as a larger version suitable as a fun pendant.
The pattern includes two variations for the larger pendant (with a finished height of approx. 4cm), plus mini Saguaro, Barrel and San Pedro cacti that are ideal as charms, earrings or scissor accessories.
This tutorial is most suitable for intermediate beaders, or adventurous beginners with a little experience of peyote stitch. The Saguaro cactus uses a small amount of CRAW (cubic right angle weave) – step-by-step instructions are given for this.
The tutorial includes step by step diagrams, close-up photos where extra explanation is needed and easy to follow instructions.
