Two-Hole Triangle Shaped Beads and How to Weave Them Into Jewelry Designs
While at Bead Fest Summer, I picked up some CzechMates two-hole triangle shaped beads. I only had a scant few tubes of these beads in my stash which would not do! And as I mentioned a while ago, triangles have been calling my name. You know when you see the signs enough you start to dial in and try to find the pattern?. How timely (or another sign?) as we just released the latest addition to the Stitching with Shaped Beads series, 10 Beaded Projects to Make with CzechMates Triangles.
In this compilation of bead-weaving patterns, two-hole triangle shaped beads are the main feature. These precious little geometric shaped beads are used in a few different ways. Front and center as the main feature, as flower petals, as the base of a design, and as accents. Here are a few designs to whet your appetite.
