Meet all the Dreamers on our staff! Dreamers tend to avoid conflict, and they find joy helping others. They are loyal and loving, and they like spending time with their family and friends. This tranquil bracelet pattern gives Dreamers the harmony they seek.
The Dreamer results describe me perfectly. I’ve always been one to avoid conflict, and I’ve been labeled as loyal and giving toward others. I’m drawn to the Dreamer bracelet design for its use of repeated colors in a soothing pattern that reminds me of watching ocean waves lapping the seashore.
–Debbie Blair, Beadwork magazine Editor
I got the Dreamer bracelet, and it didn’t surprise me that I would be described as “a people person” who “likes to spend time at home with friends and family.” I come from a huge, close family, and I’m also a middle child, so I try to avoid conflict! The soft transitions between colors in this pattern are very calming to me. The gradual shifting of colors feels like a having a conversation with a loved one.
–Marissa Bouska, Beadwork magazine Assistant Editor
Dreamer is the perfect result for me — everything about the description fits. The bracelet pattern is one I would enjoy making over and over and one I would like to try with different colors of beads. Being a Dreamer, I think I would also enjoy trying the other patterns, too — including the random pattern with all the leftover beads!
I got Dreamer, which is no surprise. I love the bracelet pattern recommended for me, too. It does look tranquil; it reminds me of walking on a deserted beach, which is one of my favorite things to do. And those colors! #love
–Tammy Jones, Social Media Manager and Editor, Bead & Jewelry Group
I was instantly drawn to the Dreamer bracelet design before I even took the quiz. I love how the colors fade into each other, as well as the combination of the different bead finishes. The quiz was pretty spot-on when it described me as loving and loyal, too. All-around, this is the perfect design for me!
–Hollie Kuhlmann, Marketing Manager, Bead & Jewelry Group
I definitely enjoy spending quality time with family and friends. Even if I hadn’t taken the quiz, the Dreamer bracelet pattern is the one that would appeal to me the most. I love the way each section of color blends beautifully into the next.
–Lynne Lounsbury, Interweave Merchandising
Meet the Adventurers on our team! Adventurers are carefree, energetic, and creative, and they enjoy trying new things. They seek variety and entertainment. The Adventurer bracelet pattern is as vibrant as the personality it represents.
Adventurer is so perfectly suited to my personality. I love trying new things and learning; variety is the spice of life! Oddly enough, I actually find the other two patterns more appealing aesthetically. This isn’t surprising to me, because I don’t tend to fit neatly into boxes!
–Meredith Steele, Beadwork magazine Technical Editor
The Adventurer design immediately caught my eye, and fortuitously, the quiz pointed me right to it! I love learning new things and seeing new places in the world. The pattern on this bracelet reminds me of exciting terrain to explore.
–Tammy Kula, Instructional Designer
Meet all our Practical staff members! Practical types are logical, straightforward, and goal-oriented. They like spending time with close friends, but they also enjoy alone time. The Practical bracelet pattern has the structure and consistency this type of person thrives on.
I’m definitely practical and goal-oriented. I love the Practical bracelet pattern because it’s orderly and symmetrical. As beautiful as the other patterns are, this is the one I find the most appealing.
–Lavon Peters, Beadwork magazine Managing Editor
The designer in me is drawn to the clean, graphic shapes in the Practical bracelet pattern. And I find the cool palette calming. A perfect fit for my practical nature!
–Connie Poole, Beadwork magazine Senior Designer
I wasn’t all that surprised to get Practical. At times I feel a little more like a Dreamer or Adventurer (and I sometimes wish I were more like these types of people), but Practical is actually very fitting for me. I love the routine of having and achieving goals and then setting new ones. The Practical bracelet pattern is calming and feels very much in sync with my personal style. This beautiful bracelet design is great for someone like me who likes order and structure in everyday things.
