Beading needle collection - Carol Dean Sharpe

These are "needles in use" from Carol Dean Sharpe aka "Sandfibers"
Let us read her comment:

The top one has been in use for about a week; the middle for a month or so; the bottom...who knows?... it's what I use for my peyote tubes. Since most of what I do is straight out FLAT peyote, I have little excuse for bent needles ;o"

Most she does is FLAT Peyote?

Hmmmm I guess this is not enough to describe this busy bee of the www-beading-scene ;-)

Characteristics of her work are straight lined patterns, perfection in use and mixture of one- two- or three-drop Peyote (I must confess I am a collector of her patterns, cause my curves would never be as curvy as hers ;-) ), a mixture of different materials in her fiber-work, ......

.... all garnished with a great sense of humor.....


.... support for other artists with her collaboration-pieces....

... the famous "Bargello-Hearts" ....

...and last but not least her beloved "hugs and kisses".

Besides all the beadwork she does, I must say, that I didn't meet another person in the www, that is so helpful and giving like CD!
So I can forgive her, big-hearted as I am, that she's bending her needles while making flat Peyote ;-))

See her work on

You are right about CD, she IS the best and I also love her patterns. These are the needles I use also, but mine don't stay straight for long. Are you saying you keep your needles straight? Is a wonder for sure. (I also admire your work, Sabine).
