I showed up to the Dallas Bead Society meeting with these beauties- then I was bombarded to teach them at a  different venue for profit. I knew the day would come when I could teach what I do and make a few dollars while I was at it. I never dreamed the day would come so soon. there are my black and white beaded cogs/ gears. I already posted a pic of the turquoise ones I made and I have had a bee in my bonnet since.

Here is the one I made while I photographed each step for the instructions.
This one was also photographed step by step. These represent the basic cog and the most ellaborate one.
I am going to make several more colorways and offer a kit with instructions. So far I have  black/ silver and white; red and black;  lime, yellow, and fushia- which was inspired by the Ringlet kits Marcia sent us to work up for her. I will keep everyone posted and if you think you may want one just raise your hand- LOL.

Another exciting new addition to the blogging world is my friend Mandi's site- Bead Circle. There are all kinds of inspiration and practical tips to find there so visit often!


congratulations on your teaching gig! your cogs look really neat!
