Lark Books is pretty amazing when it comes to sharing sample tutorials from its best books - for free! They're currently offering two PDFs that I think you'll be especially interested in.
The second is from Japanese Beadwork with Sonoko Nozue. This one is a gorgeous, streamlined beaded bezel. Dowload it from the Lark Crafts Japanese Beadwork blog post. (Check out the gorgeous, artsy photos, too!)
Will you give either tutorial a try? If so, be sure to come back and share your results! Leave a comment below or hop over to the Beadwork forum.
