Beading patterns or stitches and beading tips?

Does anyone have bead patterns consisting charms, acrylic beads, bugle beads, seed beads, Swarovski beads etc. and it has to be blue and white beads or clear. I also want some beading tips and techniques for my school project. Please tell me the patterns and ideas.

BeadGal answers:

There are a good amount of free patterns to try on http://www.bead-patterns.com. A lady named Rita Sova runs it.

I have found that by searching different Indian Tribes Home pages all have instructions for seed bead work and patterns. Also check out PowWows.com it has links also.

Betty asks…

How to make seed bead caterpillar bracelets?

I’ve seen these lovely elastic bracelets made with TONS of seed beads arranged as a thick fringe all over the whole piece. Tucked into the seed beads are a few other interesting beads and findings. I think this is called a caterpillar bracelet, but when I google that term I don’t see quite the same thing.

Is anyone familiar with this type of bracelet and do you know where I can find a pattern online?

Thanks,
Jessica
