Free crystal pattern: Fiesta Bracelet & Earrings!


Another oldie-but-goodie crystal pattern is now free! Use triangle weave and right-angle weave to create this fun and festive Fiesta bracelet with matching earrings. 

Although I used Swarovski Topaz, Indian Red and Khaki size 4mm bicone crystal beads, ANY size 4mm beads in ANY color will work just great! 

Step-by-step web instructions and a downloadable PDF at the bottom of the page available here: http://www.aroundthebeadingtable.com/Tutorials/Fiesta.html

Enjoy!

New DiamonDuo pattern!

This DiamonDuo bracelet is created by beading six (or more) separate Starflower motifs, which you then join using tail threads and beads. The motif would also make a nice pendant. More detail and photos on my website here: http://www.aroundthebeadingtable.com/Patterns/Starflower.html

How to make Rose Quartz POP!



Week 7 of the RedPandaBeads.com 2016 Spring Fashion Colors Series features the color Rose Quartz—a real wishy-washy color, in my opinion. I was wondering how Betsy was going to make this color pop and WOW, did she ever! My Rosaline Gold Bracelet and Printemps Earring patterns never looked so hot!
