the 5-Round PodCast Bead, detail
For reasons of real-time excitement, I’ve had a few requests to hold a day so a couple of beading groups can catch up with us, so we’ll Deconstruct tomorrow, I’ll put up a start-to-finish video here of the entire process, incorporating the suite of questions we’ve had on the basic processes, and then on Friday I’ll do a live Facebook video as well so I can take questions.
Please add any of your own technical questions or ideas to this comment thread, and I will be sure to cover them. I’ll also be available over the weekend to answer questions and chat about Deconstruction.
What do you think of these beautiful fan-style illos that Karen Beningfield created for the PodCasts? I just love the form for showing the whole progression, from center ring through outside edge. Tell me what you think about this style of showing a slice of the whole. Is it clear to you?
the entire Exploding Set, 14 rounds, detail
Also, I added an illustration of the Spine to yesterday’s post, to clearly show the three rounds. In my Spine, I alternated red and orange for the round shown in red here, because I like to have counting markers, but it’s nice and easy to see that it is one line in the drawing if it is all red.

The drawing above is just to isolate the first three rounds of the Spine for viewing – we won’t take it off of the Wave until it’s finished with the final Stitch-In-The-Ditch round. See you tomorrow! I’m excited. The full PDF pattern will be released next week, free to all.
