Why didn't someone think of this before? The original BeadSmart Thread Burner by EURO TOOL is perfect for stopping frayed ends of thread on embellishments, peyote stitch or anywhere raw ends need to be eliminated. Cuts and cauterizes! The tip heats to red hot at the touch of a button and melts synthetic threads so that they don't unravel. Powered by one AA battery (included).

We all know about fashion fads, and how they come into being every year and go out of popularity sometimes about as fast as they came in. There are, however, some jewelry designs that are never affected by the passage of time. They are elegant and beautiful in any time era and become classics.
I just stumbled upon a book showcasing several classical bead work jewelry designs using the following stitch techniques:
Ladder and Herringbone Stitch
the Peyote Stitch
Tubular Even Count Peyote Stitch with a Step-up
Zip Flat to Tubular or Flat to Circular
Right Angle Weave
Half Hitch Knot
Some of the projects in this book are:
A Renaissance Cameo Necklace with two versions. One is embellished simply and elegantly hanging from metal braided cording and clasped with beaded pearl buttons. Version two is my favorite one and dangles from a strand of natural pearls, closed with a vermeil S-hook. The Pearl version is the one I would try. Either way you prefer, this necklace is one of the “timeless and classical” pieces of bead jewelry that just never goes out of style.
Techniques used to create the above necklace are:
Peyote Stitch Even Count
Peyote Stitch Odd Count Technique, Step Up, Step Down
Peyote Stitch Tubular, even count with decreasing
Stitch in the Ditch
There are very detailed, step by step instructions for all the techniques and for the making of each of these versions of the Cameo Necklace. The layouts in this book are fantastic complete with beautiful color photos of the finished pieces and many diagrams.
