Deco Pagoda & Tomcat Boxes

I recently posted about having finally made one of every box in Julia Pretl's book "Little Bead Boxes". Looking back over my blog tonight I realized that I had not posted about each of the last two boxes.

The Deco Pagoda has some interested design features. Each tier created by stepping in like doing the hem. The little roofs on each tier are added later in the beading of the box.

I changed the colours to blue & silver with red accents
The Tomcat box was the last box I needed to make from the book.

I have a few cat fans among friends and families, but I am allergic. So a beaded cat box works well in my house. Of course this box will likely make its way to the home of a cat fan.

I worked the box with the colours listed in the book. I may make more use colours to match my niece and nephew's cats in the future.


  1. Congratulations for completing the Julia Beaded Box Challenge. That's quite the feat! Next???

    I’m part of the bead soup party. Looking forward to the reveals. I'm now following you. I have a new blog. Please consider following my jewelry blog. Thanks.

  3. Wow! I just searched 'box' on your blog and all of them are gorgeous!!!

    1. Thanks Amy! I look forward to seeing your boxes!
