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 Athena Bracelet, Earrings and Pendant patterns. These patterns are available for purchase on the www.aroundthebeadingtable.com website - click here to purchase the entire set for $6.00. You can also purchase the patterns individually on her website.
Note - this colorway has a slight variation. The original design calls for size 11/0 seed beads, this colorway substitutes 2 TOHO Size 11/0 Demi Beads for every size 11/0 seed bead in the pattern in a Color 1, Color 2 pattern that you can see in the photo above to give this design a slightly different look.
