Free Tila Bead Jewelry Patterns (10/17/2014)

2014 October 17

Still loving all the two hole beads? I’ve got some Tile and Tila patterns for you today. While some patterns you can swap Tilas and Tiles, others you cannot. So don’t make the mistake of swapping without testing. Sometimes it just take a slight adjustment, other times it just will not work. Period. But don’t be afraid to try, especially if you have both Tilas and Tiles on hand.

I love the Picasso finishes and and unusual colors of CzechMate 2-hole tile beads and other CzechMate 2-hole beads. But it’s hard to find a project with them that doesn’t involve needles and intricate beadweaving.

The show is good for many reasons, one of which, of course, is the gorgeous 60s era clothing and accessories. In honor of the show’s return, I thought I would pull together jewelry designs fitting of the show’s sometimes likeable, sometimes despicable heroine Betty Francis (formerly Draper).

Free Beaded Rope Patterns (10/10/2014)

2014 October 10

I love the rhythm and repetitiveness of beaded ropes. You almost get in a “zen” like state when you get in the groove of a beaded rope stitch. Many beaded ropes are spirals, some that are not. It is fun to make pendants, or buy art beads (clay, lampwork, wood, metal, etc.) and make a beaded rope to pair them with. I really enjoy picking out the colors for the beaded rope to make the pendants.

Waltz Rope And Polka Dot Beaded Beads Instructions

I’ve talked a few times this week about my “new” technique for stitching a rope using Super Duos and seed beads and how it’s very similar to other designers’ ropes.  It’s not exactly like theirs, though, so like I mentioned yesterday, I now feel comfortable writing up my instructions.  However, I don’t feel comfortable charging for those instructions, so I’m making them available for free right here!

Options for Finishing Your Beaded Ropes

http://www.beadingdaily.com/blogs/ Sun, 20 Jul 2014 23:00:00 -0700

Pretty much any stitch can be turned into a beaded rope by working it with a tubular thread path, and there are even a couple of stitches (like spiral rope and African helix) that only exist as a beaded rope. When it comes to making intricate beaded necklaces, my preferred design idea is to start with a beaded rope — they can be used for a lot more than just hanging pendants. Here are 3 options for finishing your beaded ropes that will ignite your creativity!

Free Seed Bead Patterns (10/8/2014)

2014 October 8

 I can’t quite decide if seed beads or crystals are more addictive. I’ll call it a tie. Today I found some nice tutorials. It’s funny how there are some projects you just HAVE to do right away when you see them. Even though you have 10 projects started and 100 kits waiting… I drop everything and make something I just found. Maybe the Vintage Inspired Pearl Earrings are on tonight’s beading plans.

DIY Vintage Inspired Pearl Earrings

http://www.delightfullydiy.com/ Jan 2013

I have a serious slight obsession with vintage jewelry. I particularly love big, pretty earrings from the 1950s and 1960s. I usually end up using them to make necklaces and bracelets though because they are always too big for my ears and look a little silly on me. This weekend, I came across a pair I really liked and thought I could probably make something that looked similar, but much smaller.
