There has always been a bit of confusion centered around my tutorials published in the October 2017 issue of Bead&Button and the on-line B&B Extra via facetjewelry.com/extra

Here's how it rolls.

I submitted three designs to Bead&Button and all three were accepted at first. The submissions were entitled as follows; Autumn Splendor, Autumn Swirl and Autumn's Luster. Each represented my craze with five color luster strands!

As publishing drew closer Autumn Splendor was dropped for lack of space.

Autumn Swirl was renamed to Autumn Splendor and published in the October 2017 issue, pages 24 and 25. It was published with errors as I wasn't given the proof or advised of the change of name.

Autumn's Luster was also renamed to Autumnal Glow and released for subscribers to B&B Extra on October 1, 2017

I am sharing this information with you just in case you were a Bead&Button subscriber. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this pattern.

What you'll be downloading is my original tutorial for AUTUMN'S LUSTER.

You will need to be proficient in setting up Yatsu-Kongoh gumi, organizing a counted pattern, loading beads with small holes with Tex 210 beading cord, dropping beads of various styles and sizes, finishing your braid for a glue in clasp.

I typically use the Z spiral (clockwise) with my kongoh designs and the way I organize my disk is included in this tutorial.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I'm happy to help! Diana [!at] JasmineTeaDesigns.com

Frequently Asked Questions


Thank you for taking the time to shop my Jasmine Tea Designs Etsy Store. I appreciate your business.

I'm a small business and I try to get your packages out as quickly as I can to the best of my ability. Sometimes there are issues with items being on back order or prematurely sold out. In these cases I will refund the purchase price of that item and send out the remainder of your order as to not hold up the items that are in stock.

I ship via the United States Postal Service. Once the package leaves the shop I am not able to track it other than the tracking number that is sent to you. If there are any issues with where your package is please contact your local post office with the tracking number for more information.

Lost Orders and Address Issues

I use the United States Post Office to ship. I am not responsible for lost, stolen, or incorrect delivery of packages once there is tracking info for your order. Similarly, if your Paypal or Etsy addresses are not correct, we cannot be held responsible for those MIA packages. Should you find yourself in this position, we encourage you to take your tracking number to the PO and see what can be done.
