Today is an odds and ends day. Sometimes, I find patterns that just don’t fit in with any particular topic. I save them up for generic topics like today. I really like the Diamond Bracelet with Toho Cubes. I’ll be digging out my cube beads tonight!!

I have been obsessed by these little sleeves for the past month or so. Ordering beads matching the Kumihimo Bracelets with Long Magatamas & C-Lon Tex 400, trying different bead sleeve designs, wearing them constantly to test them and getting comments from friends and at large.

I know most of us are lampworkers, but lots of us work other things too and since this is Lampwork ETC., I thought I’d share some of my old seed bead patterns. I used to offer them on my site for free when I was doing seed beads, but when I closed down my old site, I never added them to the new one. Ran across the pictures this afternoon searching for something else.

Share and Enjoy
