                    BEADING KITS

FOR THE BEGINNER THROUGH ADVANCED BEADER

Home of ORIGINAL BEADED JEWELRY DESIGNS by PATTI TOWERS and introducing the NOT-SO-FREEFORM PEYOTE KITS.

Welcome to  Kit & Kaboodle. My name is Patti Towers and I have taught beading classes for years in quality bead shops throughout the country.  That means I have first-hand knowledge of the frustration that can develop while learning new beading techniques.  I use that knowledge in developing my kits so that written instructions and patterns are clear and easy to understand.

I write instructions assuming a minimum of experience for that level, whether for BEGINNER KITS, INTERMEDIATE KITS, or ADVANCED KITS. Additionally, I include basic instructions such as KNOTTING ON & KNOTTING OFF in all of the kits so you may reference them regardless of your level of expertise.

All kits include needle, thread, and all beads you need for the project as well as pattern and instructions. For kits with seed beads and smaller beads I send more beads than needed so you will not run short.

Please feel free to contact me, vie email, if you feel something is not clear.   The best instructions in the world may need improvement and your comments are appreciated.  My reputation as a kit designer depends on the happiness of my customers!

Maui

The Maui ring shown above was my first beaded ring - I didn't design it as such - it just kind of evolved!   It is still my favorite - perhaps because it reminds me of a vacation in the islands - sunshine, bright colors.   I also have a pink and rosy version of the ring.   The pink and rose sample is made but the kit is not yet available.   Watch for it in the very near future.

NOT-SO-FREEFORM Peyote Kits

Would you like to try freeform peyote but you are unsure of how to to do it?   Not-So-Freeform kits give you an introduction to freeform peyote.   These projects have the LOOK of freeform but they are worked to an exact pattern.   In the process of completing your project you will learn some of the techniques of freeform.   I spend a lot of time developing the kits by first designing a freeform project then meticulously counting the beads and making a pattern.   Please do not attempt these kits unless you have some knowledge of peyote - the frustration might spoil you forever on the concept of freeform - and we don't want that!
