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 Nexus Bracelet & Earrings pattern. This pattern is available for purchase on her website, www.aroundthebeadingtable.com.
