Pattern #1

Tangled Vines by Robin Cowart


This is fast and fabulous! Add four rows of simple swags to a strung core of beads for a lush bracelet or necklace rope. Use different clasps or toggles for added interest. This project makes a bracelet. To make a longer rope for a necklace, increase the amount of beads and wire. To make both, be sure to double your crimps and clasps.

Pattern #5

Cubed Diamonds by Sally Morgan


This unique bead-weaving project is a fabulous way to learn how create geometric shapes with brick stitch. Cube beads stack up neatly and have large holes that allow for multiple thread passes. It's a portable project—you can take some beads with you and whip together the individual diamonds that you can then assemble later at home. I find I can make six diamonds in an hour without taking my whole project with me when I am going to a meeting or waiting for something.
