The Best Beading Patterns for Any Occasion
Even after all these years spent working with tiny seed beads, I’m still amazed at how a random pile of beads, some thread, and a relatively simple bead weaving stitch can create a beautiful piece of finished beadwork. A universe of infinite possibilities stretches before us when we sit down to make a piece of jewelry from a beading pattern, and over the years, I’ve collected a few favorites from the pages of Beadwork magazine. Check out my lists of favorite beading patterns that I’ve shared over the years here on the Beading Daily blog and see if any of your favorites made the list!
