Videos on PodCasting and Deconstruction

For those of you who have never made a PodCast Bead or done a Deconstruction, and feel confused about the forms and the process of separating the beadwork by snipping, it would be good to catch up with at least the shortest of these older videos before you tackle Deconstructing our Exploding Set.

I’ll have video of our 24-Point Podcast build and Exploding Set Deconstruction soon, but really the only difference in the PodCast itself is the size of the starter ring.

24 points = 24 beads

This is a short piece showing a couple of things coming off of a taller PodCast Bead with fewer points.

And this is a 45-minute full class on how PodCast Beads are built and how Deconstruction is done.

    Hi everyone,

    You may remember that I mentioned that it’s possible to make a geometric shape that can be used as a form to easily create more of the same shapes, bypassing those annoying first few rows of peyote stitch starts.

    I’ve forwarded Kate McKinnon’s latest blog post that includes links to her videos on Youtube that explain the process. Clicking on the photos will take you to the videos. One caveat, she always uses Nymo thread, which is much easier to snip than Fireline. Give her method a try!

    Happy beading! Karen
