I am making my daughter’s veil…cathedral length. Bodice of dress is alencon lace that is heavily embellished with seed pearls, tiny silver beads, translucent bugle beads and sequins. I need design guidelines for embellishing the veil. Thanks!!!

How do you make lizard and other designs made out of small seed beads websites with pictures please.

BeadGal answers:

This site had some 3D patterns.  I don’t see a lizard, but they do have dragons and birds and other animals:

You could also search Bead Patterns for “3D” – I found almost 100 patterns for 3D items…

Donna asks…

Can anyone lead me to a place where I can find jewelery designs?

I need some designs to make earrings, I work with #15 seed beads. Ideas of places to get books, designs, or anything like that.

BeadGal answers:

Funny you should ask… I just stumbled on a site called The Bead Coop that had literally thousands of patterns, for peyote and brick stitch as well as loomed. I saw lots of earring patterns there. Mostly the patterns use Delicas, but you can convert, I’m sure, if you’re experienced enough to be using 15/0 beads.
