Mailye Tutorial

Yesterday, someone asked if I had a tutorial for my Mailye necklace. It was flattering to be asked, and although I’ve never sold tutorials before, I did in fact have a PDF instruction sheet made. My plan had been to get a bit of a library of tutorials before releasing them, but one must supply for demand, so I’ve now made my first tutorial sale.  I’m pretty chuffed about it.

Mailye is actually a component which can be fashioned into all sorts of configurations. The tutorial is available in my store. Expect to see more tutorials in time.

I also have a free tutorial sheet for CRAW stitch available here, for use as a learning or teaching aid. Share it at your leisure.

Introducing Mailye

It’s super simple, but it’s surprisingly effective. Mailye is a teeny little component jointed with jump rings. The first Mailye necklace was borne of experimentation, and I liked it so much I decided to keep it for myself.

Afterwards, while rummaging though my bead stash, I spotted some beautiful turquoise AB Swarovski bicones and the temptation was too much, so I made another. This amazingly sparkly one can be found for sale here.

Of course other configurations are possible too, it all depends on how you link them together. Here is my third Mailye installment, a pretty cuff in bronze and gold, with a handy magnetic clasp. This one is also available for purchase here.
