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. Since the Any Bead pattern calls for any 2-hole beads, this pattern is even more versatile. This category highlights some of the possible variations of her Any Bead Bracelet pattern. This pattern is available for $4.00 on the www.aroundthebeadingtable.comwebsite - click herefor the bracelet pattern.
This colorway alternates two size 4mm beads in the design. Color 1 is the 4mm bead used in each motif and Color 2 is the 4mm bead that connects the motifs.
