Ebook Review: Beaded Pens
Here's another cool, niche ebook from an indie publisher. Mandi Ainsworth has been making and selling awesome beaded pens for years, and she's just pulled all her knowledge of the subject together in Beaded Pens: Adorn Your Pen with Peyote.
"Peyote," for the unfamiliar, refers to an easy-to-learn seed beading stitch. In this ebook, Mandi walks you through a set of simple diagrams that will get you started in this style of beading.
In addition, she shows you how easy it is to play around with the placement of different-colored beads to create interesting graphic patterns in your beading. And there are diagrams for several of Mandi's own beading patterns - you can see them below...
I've had two of Mandi's pens for a while now, and love using them. (They're refillable!) I'm excited to give her instructions a whirl and make some more as gifts!
Best of all, Mandi's offering Beaded Pens for free if you sign up for her email newsletter. If you're interested in beading, she'll be offering up news, projects, and more. Get all the details and sign up over here.
