An online worldwide event with Diána Balogh
This bracelet will be guaranteed one of your favourites: it is simple, delicate and elegant with tiny colourful accents.
I teach you in this video tutorial how to do the Flat Chenille stitch. I teach a new bracelet design, which I created for this year’s International Beading Week (IBW).

How I almost lost control over my intellectual property
I’d like to raise your attention to something, that might happen to your design, your intellectual property and your copyright, if you trust Interweave, or Golden Peak Media* with them. Please read this, even if beading is not your hobby/profession, because this can very well apply to all publications of Golden Peak Media (beading, jewellery making, knitting, crochet, sewing, quilting, patchwork, embroidery and fine arts as well), because we talk about the same publisher. My story is a lesson for everyone, the designers, who create DIY tutorials, and artisans/crafters who create art based on print or on-line media.
If you think you are involved into this, please get in touch so we can do something together to protect our copyrights. »
