Free Seed Bead Patterns (7/21/2014)
There is something about those irresistible little seed beads. Delica’s, rounds, bugles, drops and all the new two-hole beads – once we start using them, we just can’t help but succumb to them. We collect as many colors as we can when a new style comes out, we “re-buy” our same favorite colors because we can’t remember if we have enough of the ones we use all the time. How have these little temptresses changed your life?

When I came across a photo of a refrigerator covered with photos and kid drawings, I decided to create a beaded magnet. The simple heart design symbolizes the new family: the pink in the center is the new baby girl and each outline represents one of her parents. I wanted the heart to glow and shine with the light, so I used matte beads as the background and a few silver-lined beads for the heart.

Since I wasn’t able to track down a pattern online for the earrings that I blogged about HERE, I figured out how to make them myself and then came up with this round variation. The pattern also works perfectly with 11/0 seed beads and 4mm fire polished beads but I’m not crazy about that size for earrings. If you make them that size, I suggest using Nymo D thread. Nymo B and FireLine are too thin to give the earrings enough stability.

Bead weaving always seemed a bit out of my league — too complicated, beads too small, I don’t have the patience…. the list goes on. When my friend, Traci Otte, told me that one of her designs was going to be featured in the July 2014 issue of Bead Style magazine and, that it incorporated saucer beads (larger than seed beads), I decided this would be a perfect first project for me.
