    You will need three different beads to complete your design. Each bead will represent one of the following:

    1. Jewelry base/main color (seed or e-beads work best). Also used to separate letters.

    2. Dots for letters (we used silver and gold round beads)

    3. Dashes for letters (we used gold/silver 10-16mm tube beads)

    A single strand is easiest for beginners and will take approximately 1 hour to complete.

    Advanced jewelry makers can also create multi-strand sets that convey a longer message.
