I cut a pattern for peyote stitched starfish by, Dulcey Heller, out of magazine (I think it was Bead Style) a while ago and put it in my file books, I went to get it out as I had a super brain storm idea and found I only had the first page. This works fine until I start trying to get them all together then I seem to get lost. If anyone has this pattern or knows where it might be found I would truly appreciate the help. I just got a great idea of a new way to use them in something else I am making and now no complete directions.
Mahalo for any help that anyone can give me,

There's a thread on here about the starfish - with versions made in different bead sizes - Dulcey's original pattern was in Beadwork magazine, Feb/Mar 2005, page 33, 'Wish Upon A Starfish'. If it's not available on Beading Daily (and it should be - it's a wonderful pattern and the starfish are so satisfying and addictive to make!) then somebody somewhere must have a back number... Hope that helps!

Thanks so much for your reply, I will check the threads here first then if I can't find what I need I will see about ordering a back issue of, Bead Works or just the pattern. Yes I loved the way they looked and thought they would be great to play with. Then I came up with a fun way to try and use them, and couldn't find the entire pattern, will be very grateful for the help you gave me.
Post a picture of the Starfish, as far as your instruction goes, and I bet some of us, could help you fill in the blanks to finish it up.
I love th story of the "Starfish" on the internet.
There was a" How to" at one time on BD,
Good Luck, Mary

Guess she must have found her answer. If not, I DO have that issue, and the two pertinent pages are in excellent condition, too.

I have been looking for a starfish pattern for some time, they are all so expensive. Would you be willing to sell your magazine. Please email me
Look forward to your reply.
Crickett, I removed your address . you never want to post your address out there on a public forum like this. Beading Daily has a very neat way of others to e-mail you without giving your address out. They would just click on your name, and your profile will pop up. Under your avatar they can click on "send e-mail and they never know your address unless your reply.
