Free Peanut (Farfelle) Seed Bead Patterns (1/29/2014)
I’ve been putting peanut beads into my work more and more. They add a great texture to ordinary stitches like peyote and right angle weave. They are great to finish a necklace strand, as it is more interesting than chain or plain seed beads. Here are some free patterns and inspiration for you to getting working with all those peanuts beads you bought!

I mentioned a bit ago that I finally received my peanut beads in the mail from Whim Beads and I was so thrilled. I finally figured out what to do with some of them! These lampwork beads of mine (called Daydream) are my favorite creations of late and I made these earrings with them!

I was at White Fox Bead Studio the other day and the owner was working on a bracelet she was making out of the new peanut beads. I was struck by how the beads laid. So I bought some and started experimenting!

I decided to first turn my attention to the butterfly pendant. I really love the colors and have lots in my stash that I knew would go well with it. I started playing around with the peanut beads and once that was done I wanted a pop of turquoise to bring together the rust of the seed beads and the green in the pendant.

I’m still not in a position to get back to any polymer clay, but I did have the opportunity to play with some peanut beads that I bought a while back. I made this funky cuff from the Bead and Button Peyote Special issue.

I brought along a new pair of earrings for my sister-in-law. She makes jewelry too, so we enjoy gifting each other with our creations. The lampwork glass discs are handmade by Out West. The lilac, blue and black are such a gorgeous color combo. My sister-in-law loves them!

Just on a whim (Whim Beads, get it?), I picked up a seed bead, a few peanut beads, and a seed bead. Skipped a few beads in the brick stitch edging, and made a tiny little loop with the peanut beads all pushed together. It resulted in a lovely, lacy edging all around the embroidery that both softened it and gave it a lovely accent color!
