This was a toy I beaded a while back and I’d like to share with you.
Inspired by paper hexa-hexaflexagon models, I wondered how many faces I could achieve in a beaded model, while preserving it’s ability to cycle with some elegance. Bulk being the limiting factor, I haven’t exceeded four, but four works pretty well.
Pinstripe is a favorite of mine
but Queen of Hearts was more challenging
If you’d like to make you own, here’s my basic tutorial
and if you’d like to see this in action … Beaded Flexagon in Motion
I look forward to seeing your work
Please enjoy and bead happy!
I don’t really have a lot to say about these. Just a few things in progress. 🙂
This beautiful green monarch, beaded by Amanda Griffiths, is a sophisticated example of alternate palette possibilities. …exquisite!
And she’s graciously offered to share her gift with us. Her talent enriches us all!

Thank you, Amanda!
I beaded the blue Morpho in 2015 as a gift. The vibrant colors of Blue Morpho butterflies are breathtaking and I endeavored to honor nature’s brilliance with this piece.
Please enjoy and share your experience with me.

The geometric Monarch is, to date, the most shared and pinned beadwork piece I’ve designed. It’s this piece that convinced me to study the various skills needed to write a pattern and to begin the Winged Warps Series. I’m not sure what I’ll do with the complete patterns/tutorials, but I’m happy to share the Monarch graph here.
