JAPANESE LANTERNS. NEW KITS!

In January of 2000, While playing with my Delica Beads and Anne Hawley's Flat Round Peyote tutorial, I discovered my newest creation, The "Japanese Lantern"!Worked in tubular Peyote stitch, it is a vessel that opens up to contain your smallest treasures.It is worked in a very easy-to-follow line by line format, with bead counts given every row. I ended up working quite a few varitions, but decided that the four-sided "Lantern" would be my next kit.
Japanese Lantern availble s a complete kit $80.00

This lantern was beaded with no help from me personally, using only my written instructions by a semi-famous web-beader, Cecelia Prado aka Inkchick. Didn't she do an awesome job?

NOT FOR SALE. This Strawberry is an interesting adaptation of my technique. It is also featured in the 2002 edition of Shipwreck Beads' catalog!
