As a beader who designs and sells largely to support my own out of control bead buying habit, I’m happy for you to make this design to sell (in small quantities only) so you can buy lots more beads (and tutorials), but please make sure you give me full credit as designer.


I made the original piece as part of a beading competition - we had to make a Chatelaine and one of the objects I included was a tape measure. The beading grew very naturally, and although it's a lot more extravagant than much of my other work, I was so happy with it I decided to make a tutorial.
