Basic Skills Necessary:

  • good needle and thread skills
  • right angle weave

Pattern Description:

These sweet little beaded beads are a mouth-watering delight - bet you can't stop at just one! Use them as earrings, or as a pendant, or string a bunch of them into a necklace or bracelet.

The instructions include two variations, Dolce Grande, a slightly bigger, more complex version, and Dolce Piccolo, a sightly smaller and simpler version. Use right angle weave to create the oval base beaded bead which gets its shape by varying the sizes of the beads used, then decorate, embellish and strengthen by stitching a latticework of seed beads in a variety of colours.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Dolce Piccolo: just under 1" x .6"
  • Dolce Grande: just over 1" x .75"


  • 8mm fire-polished round beads (4, for Dolce Grande)
  • 6mm fire-polished round beads (8, for Dolce Grande, or 12 for Dolce PIccolo)
  • 4mm fire-polished round beads (8)
  • 3mm fire-polished round beads (16 for Dolce Grande)
  • Size 8 seed beads (16)
  • Size 11 seed beads, 3 colours, small amounts
