Here in the UK after the death of our very popular Queen we are now looking towards a future under the rein of King Charles III. We thought one good way to celebrate his coronation would be with a beaded Beefeater, perhaps our most popular royal guards.
The Beefeaters are based at the Tower of London. One of their most well known responsibilities is to look after the ravens at the tower. Legend has it that if they fly away disaster will fall on the kingdom, so the Beefeaters ensure this does not happen, along with protecting the crown jewels and keeping any prisoners in the tower …. (Pretty sure we have no prisoners there at the moment though! lol)
In this pattern we give full detailed photographic and graphic instructions, and there are 103 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 7 delica colours in total and the beefeater measures 9.5cm (h) x 3cm (w) x 3.5cm (d).
1 x 4mm 24kt Gold, 3 x 3mm 24kt Gold, 1 x 6mm Crystal AB fire polished beads are required along with some polyester wadding.
The bead pattern supplied is 43 pages and includes 103 step by step photo and graphic instructions. A word chart is also included.
