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 Bistro Bracelet pattern. These patterns are available for purchase on the www.aroundthebeadingtable.com website - click herefor the bracelet. Deb also has a matching Bistro Earrings & Pendant pattern (click here) and a matching Bistro Necklace pattern (click here).
