eTutorial "HAPPY BROOCH" a whimsical brooch by patrickduggandesigns


"HAPPY BROOCH" - a tutorial for a whimsical, full of colour brooch designed by patrickduggandesigns.
So named as so many people commented they felt Happy when they saw my brooch designs. What more could a designer ask for?
A Lunasoft cabachon is surrounded in fluorescent seed beads with layers of bright coloured Czech crystals, druk beads and Swarovski fluoro pearls. Not for the faint of heart when it comes to colour.
This tutorial is written for the first image shown, includes a list of materials, three suggested colour schemes, and different ways of adding the crystals to give a number of varieties for your brooch.
Make it colourful or turn it into your own favourite colours.
The brooch measures 45mm (1 3/4") across when finished.

Another plus with my Happy Brooch. When busy with 'life' and missing beading I could always sit and do a small 2-3 hour project making a Happy Brooch and always feel better for the experience- it is a great way to experiment with colour and see how well they work together.

This intermediate level Tutorial comes with 15 pages containing 54 full colour illustrations in PDF format. Each illustration takes you from one step easily and clearly to the next step from start to finish. For those with aversions to Cubic Right Angle Weave this tutorial has a VERY small amount of CRAW and is illustrated step by step how to turn a RAW into a CRAW.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

With the release of so many fluoro colours and being a lover of colour I started collecting beads.
I sat one morning wondering what on earth will I do with these 'garish' beads. That is when I decided to go all out and put them all together and this 'Happy Brooch' came into being.
It has given me so much fun and joy to play with.
