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 Birthday Bracelet pattern, which is FREE on the www.aroundthebeadingtable.com website
One of the neat things (besides being free!) about this pattern is the fact that you can use any 4mm beads - including: fire-polished, bicone crystal, round bead, glass pearl, etc. as long as the beads are 4mm in size!
Birthday Bracelet Materials (for a 7-inch bracelet, not including clasp) 3 yards of 6lb. FireLine Approx 200 size 11/0 seed beads Approx 57 size 4mm Color1 beads Approx 55 size 4mm Color2 beads Clasp
Below are the components used in this design example. If you would like to make this version yourself, you will need to calculate the quantities of each item to purchase, depending on the length of bracelet you wish to make, etc.
