Talking The Healing Hand - A Tutorial

I have a new tutorial - one that is close to my heart and I hope you like it, too!

In this tutorial, I teach you how to "draw" a Healing Hand symbol on your bead. Full-color photographs and written instructions are included. 11 pages, 1.6MB instant download on Etsy! $24.95

You just need to make your own base bead and then be able to pull 1mm stringer - that's it. I show you the rest!

PURCHASE HERE (click on photo to go to Etsy listing):



As always, I'll be willing to answer questions via PM or in this post if the answer doesn't give away the instructions.

Here's my second try from Amber's tutorial. Although this bead doesn't seem to show it, Amber's pictures have been really helpful for my stringer control. My first try was a lot worse!! I'll post again after I've had a chance to make another one.

Aw, thanks Amber. I feel a lot better about my prospects. There's definitely a learning curve.

So, here's my next try. And if I'd taken the computer out to the studio (or at least printed out a picture) I would have realized you don't have three of the fingers touching the hand, which looks better. Sorry for the cruddy phone picture, I didn't have the camera in the studio, either. This is Reichenbach Dense Blue on CiM Blue Steel and the colors are much better in person.

I tried my 'hand' at these. Had a great time. The big one was a GIGANTIC lentil, almost as big a the palm of my hand. In my excitement of having a new tutorial, I wasn't thinking about turning on the kiln and it didn't survive in the crockpot. The other attempts are on tabs just a hair smaller than a quarter. A lot more challenging especially for me. I was having loads of trouble seeing my flame when I turned it down so today I painted my bench flat black and tomorrow-practice, practice, practice.

So, here are my first attempts at the hand (and also my first attempts at using stringer for anything other than abstract trailings). There were more attempts. The ones I really messed up are on the back sides .






Thank you Amber. Great tut! I'll keep trying.

Marie - How sad about the big one! but you really did a great job on these! As you get more comfortable making them, start the spiral closer to the edge of your tab and you'll have more room to extend the fingers.
