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.
I hope this collection of five stained glass ornaments become some of your favorites. They can all be worked in brick or peyote which ever you prefer. This price is 20% less than buying the patterns separate or equal to getting one pattern free.
On the pattern pages, I have provided you with:
Pictures of the finished ornaments back lit and on a mat.
Bead legend with colors and amounts of beads
Lettered graph that lets you substitute your own colors. Of course if you substitute colors be sure to substitute transparent for transparent and opaque for opaque to retain the stained glass effect.
