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 Moon Ring Bracelet & Earrings patterns. Click on the blue links to purchase the bracelet patternfor $4.00 and the earrings pattern for $2.75 on her website www.aroundthebeadingtable.com.
Note - the original colorway featured the French Celsian Czech Bicone Crystals that have since been discontinued. The Swarovski Chili Pepper Crystals are substituted in this colorway.
