Favorite Teal Deal

About this design:

This may be a bit blurry and I apologize for it. I tried desperately to buy these Muddy Spring Beads. Kevin said they had gotten them by mistake but they sold very quickly. I wish they would come back. So fresh looking.


I used Turqoise leather cord 1.5MM and they only had 6MM beads so I wasn't able to gradually use the 4MM first and then go on to the 6MM, however, I think I will remake it and I do have another bead in 4MM which will go with the design. The button is a ceramic turquoise one and I also thought it may look good with a shell button.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Once again use the ladder stitch as supplied by Ali on this site. Or use the KO thread or C-lon which you don't use a needle with. Remember to seal your knots with a bit of cement adhesive.

    I LOVE this one. My colors. That’s the Muddy Spring Mix Pearls! They have them still. It was the first thing I ever ordered from LB. I want to order about 10 strands lol I love them so much.

    This one is my favorite Lisa. Love the shades of teal. I think the ceramic button is a nice contrast to the pearls.

    Thank you for all the lovely comments. I too do wish I had more time to make more things. Still have my own day care business(for 30 yrs now). But to Little Round Chick, my Dad who has passed on used to call me Pinkie Lee when I was growing up because my family calls me Lee. LISA LABARRE-KURZ
