Samantha Burroughs - Day in the Forest Necklace

In this tutorial I'll show you how to create three canes (a daisy, a leaf and a translucent grass cane). I'll show you how to create a cool veneer from them and how to turn that veneer into perfectly finished beads.

The techniques shown in this tutorial can be changed to create an entirely different look and so are very versatile.

I explain the process step by step and include tips and tricks along the way so that you can replicate the project perfectly along with being able to change it up to make it all your own.
