Tile, Tila and Half-Tila Bead Patterns
I’ve been so preoccupied with SuperDuos and all the other new beads that keep coming out, I haven’t played with Tiles or Tilas lately. I’ve hardly used Half Tilas at all. Guess I better get busy with some of these patterns!

Pendant Bead Patterns
Back to one of my favorite beading subjects – pendants. Did you miss making your mother something for Mother’s Day? Got any weddings or graduations coming up where a personalized gift would be appropriate? Pendants are great and fast!!

Mixed Media Jewelry Tutorials
You just never know what people will put into their mixed media jewelry. Besides beads (of course), there are found objects, polymer clay, resin, cloth, paper, leather, ribbons, etc. You probably have some items or materials lying around the house you could use to make your own unique...

Beaded Balls Tutorials
Aren’t beaded beads fun? They can be the focus of a necklace or bracelet. They can be earrings. You can string a bunch of them for a necklace or bracelet. And they are great for using up leftover beads!

Peyote Stitch Bead Patterns
What? You haven’t learned Peyote stitch yet? There’s no better time than now. I have several different beginner’s tutorials, so if one doesn’t make the lightbulb go off for you, try another. Everyone learns in different ways, so don’t give up if one tutorial doesn’t work for you.

Seed Bead Bracelet Patterns
Can you ever have enough bracelets? Seems like no matter how many I make, I’m always missing the color I need to match a necklace, or earrings or outfit. Or I have the color with gold, but I want it with silver. Good excuse to make some more!

Multiple Hole Seed Bead Patterns
Found some really cool stuff today. A ton of free patterns at Bead Smith which are just fantastic, using a variety of two-hole beads. And I can’t wait to make the Loves Whisper earrings from Eureka Crystal Beads.
