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