Category: Bead Patterns

I have put together some collections of bead patterns for you to enjoy. So, rather than showcasing individual patterns, these articles bring together a selection based around a theme.

You will see I have a huge range of different themes. They can be patterns to suit a particular level of experience. For example, a selection of bead patterns that are great for beginners. Or, a selection of advanced projects.

I have also picked themes to reflect special occasions. So, you will see pattern collections that are suitable for Valentine’s or Easter, for example.

Then, I have the themes around styles of beading. For example, a collection of patterns for making beaded baubles, or beaded boxes.

I have also put together collections for themes like beaded animals or beaded flowers.

Now, you don’t have to buy all the patterns from the theme. These are just collections to give you some ideas and inspiration. Maybe just one takes your fancy. Or maybe you don’t want to try any of these specific bead patterns, but you are intrigued by the designer. So, you can use this as a springboard to visit their websites and explore further.

If you have a theme that you would like me to cover, you can use this link and fill out the form to make your suggestion.

I try to add a new collection most months, so keep checking back here. You can also join my mailing list and I will deliver all the new articles direct to your inbox, once a month. So, that way you won’t miss anything.
