Default sand dollars

Hi everyone! Is there an existing tutorial (free or for sale) of sand dollars, either alone or with other sea creatures?

Thanks

Duane

I believe Becky and Diane's Shell Tut has a *BONUS* on doing the Sand Dollars; it's listed in Etsy:

Oh, and by the way, I have Sand Dollar Murrini in my Etsy too! Look like this:

I love Becky and Diane's tutorial on sand dollars and other shells for that matter. They really cracked the code on something with which I had been struggling. I recommend their tutorials.

I concur. I have their tutorials and the sand dollar beads are beautiful. I get a lot of compliments on them.

I received it last night and have read through it twice. Can't wait to get some torch time! Very well written & well worth the money!

Hi everyone. Thanks for all of the nice comments about our tutorials. It has been over a year since my sister Diane and I first released our 3 tutorials and we're thrilled that 15 months later people are still buying them! We appreciate all of the nice things you've all said, and for those of you who are just now giving the tutorials a try, we hope you have fun!

This may not be the place to post these, but here are the beads I made with Becky & Diane's tutorial. If you're looking for a sand dollar tutorial this one is wonderful!

Nice!! I have some ivory that I handpicked at the Effetre factory last year. If I ever get it cut up it would make great shells and sand dollars!

Hi Cherri, Yes, I still have the tutorials listed in my Etsy store. The focal shells tutorial has the sand dollar, the conch shell and the fan shell. The small shells tutorial is for the bracelet sized shells. Each of them is $10 each, but we also offer a bundle that includes our animal print tutorial as well for only $20 for the trio. I tell people, if you don't want the animal print tut that comes as part of the bundle, just give it as a gift or send someone a RAOGK

This tutorial series has been very successful for us, and we tried to break it down into steps so that the beads are easy and fun to make. I LOVE making shells, and when I get on a kick, it's hard to stop.
