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 Button Pattern Collection. The collection includes a Necklace, Bracelet and Earrings pattern. This pattern set is available for purchase on the www.aroundthebeadingtable.comwebsite - click herefor the Button Pattern Collection.
