Remember last year when I beaded a knee hugger for myself because in the UK they are so hard to get? Well, there is another US item I have admired for a long time, and in the UK you can’t get them either.
That item is a Fairy Lamp – popular in the US during Victorian times they have become a popular collectable due to their decorative styles, so I thought, why not try to bead one of those for myself too!
In this pattern we give full detailed photographic and graphic instructions, and there are 78 detailed steps, making this pattern even suitable for beginners to beading.
This bead pattern is made using Japanese Miyuki size 11 Delica. Round Peyote stitch is used but full detailed instructions are given, and no previous knowledge of the stitch is required. Please note the pattern may not work with any other size and type of beads.
There are 17 delica colours in total and the finished beadwork is approximately 4.75cm (w) x 8.5cm (h).
13 x 3mm, 13 x 6mm, 1 x 10mm fire polished crystal AB beads are required along with a small amount of polyester wadding. A submersible tea light is also required to light the lamp.
The bead pattern supplied is 34 pages and includes 78 step by step photos and graphic instructions. A word chart is also included.
