Seed Bead Patterns (5/3/2016)
How many of you ever bought a tube of seed beads, then got home and realized you had 3 tubes already? I say you are consistent!! Many of us have a love affair with seed beads. Try one of these patterns to use some of those seed beads you’ve bought 9 times!
Designed for Toho for a demonstration at the 2015 Bead and Button Show, these earrings feature many Toho seed beads along with Czech two-hole daggers and 4mm rounds. The technique is very simple, you work from the inside out using a combination of peyote stitch and netting to build up the medallion shape. Try them out today!
I love these little rings! They are perfect stacked on your fingers but look really great peeking out of the sand on your toes. Perfect for beginners, these rings require that you know only two basic stitches: even count peyote stitch for the ring band and how to make a beaded daisy for the flower embellishment. Changing the beads you use on the daisy can change the look entirely.
Sparkling rose montées nestled in a circular bed of two-hole lentil beads and tiny pearls make this bracelet fun to stitch and comfortable to wear.

We would like to acquaint you with the new PRECIOSA Candy™ pressed bead from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand. Preciosa Ornela presents a two-hole low cabochon with a round base with a diameter of 8 mm. Thanks to its shallow curvature, the lower section is highly suitable for use in embroidery and for use in combination with PRECIOSA seed beads and beads.
This pretty pattern can be made into a necklace or bracelet. It is not too hard to make so you should be able to finish quickly and be wearing it before you know it. Use 2 colors of seed beads or you can make all in one color too.
