I've been designing beaded jewelry for about 8 years. My initial attempts at designing were to make beautiful jewelry with semi-precious (healing) stones. The beads kind of took over my life and I'm not particular what I use to design with as long as it is a high quality bead.
I can't say I have a favorite stitch or type of bead, but lately I've been experimenting with the new Twin beads and Super Duos.
Next on my to-do list is design some items with Cubic Right Angle Weave with the Twins. It works in my head, now to put thread and beads to it.
Super easy bracelet and earrings feature #3 (approx. 5 mm) bugle beads, 6mm pearls and size 15 silver lined seed beads for the bracelet. The earrings feature a 5mmX8mm head drilled drop pearl instead of the 6mm pearls used in the bracelet.
On the pattern pages, I have provided you with:
