I wanted to have a few small decorations for the Halloween season. I use this semi-small Frankenstein head as a coffee coaster. It can also be used as a decorative guard for the candy dish. The eyes glow in the dark or under black light. If you wanted to add-lib on the pattern change out the champagne beads used for the teeth for glow in the dark beads so your Frankie can have even more night time appeal.
As a side note, if you've never done a right angle bead design before, you may want to download my free "Right Angle Bead Instructions" to better understand how to work this pattern. Thank you.

My mother had taught me how to make small basic beaded doilies when I was young. I have since elaborated from basic patterns and designs into larger and more detailed patterns. In 2012 I took several of my finished projects to the local county fair for competition and all of them won blue ribbons. I have also joined the "Six Rivers Gallery" art guild in Hoquiam Washington. They have shown me that my beading is not just a craft, it is also an art.
Over the last year, I have had my creations displayed in local stores and shown in multiple art shows. More and more I am expanding my bead art into the public. I am now working on teaching classes at the local bead and craft store and plan on making a book, or 2, to feature some of my wonderful designs. I would greatly appreciate any feedback you could give for me to better assist others in learning and reproducing what I do. And hopefully, they will start creating their own designs in turn.
Thank you for checking out my patterns and hope you enjoy beading them as much as I do.
