Deborah Roberti designs beading patterns. Her website offers some free and some bead patterns available for purchase. I highly recommend her bead patterns, not only are they extremely affordable and easy to follow, but they are very versatile as well. This category highlights some of the possible variations of her Lady Jane Bracelet and Earrings patterns. The Lady Jane Bracelet and Earring patterns are available for sale on Deb's website. Click here to purchase the Bracelet ($4.00) and click here to purchase the Earrings ($3.50) pattern. You can also visit her website, www.aroundthebeadingtable.com or her Etsy store by clicking here.
Note - the CZBC4-Z7050 bicone crystals used in the original colorway are no longer available, the color 532804CPEP is suggested as a substitution.
