I have now published over 200 beading patterns, so for ease of searching, I have categorised them all. You can search in three ways: if you are looking for a particular technique on which to work, then you can search the patterns according to the beading techniques that they use. I have patterns covering all the major bead-weaving techniques, plus French beading, wirework and beading basics.
If you are looking for a beading pattern that suits your abilities and experience, you can search according to level. I have categorised the levels according to the stitch, so for example, you may be a beader who is highly experienced in Peyote stitch, but if you have never done a Right Angle Weave project, then you should look for a beginner level RAW pattern.
Finally, you can search according to the type of project you want to make. I have beading patterns for necklaces, bracelets, earrings, beaded beads, charms and pendants and other non-jewellery beadwork, so just pick your favourite!
For any of these search methods, use the drop-down menu options under ‘patterns’ in the menu above. If you have any questions or special requests for beading patterns, then please get in touch.
All beading patterns on this website are copyright Katie Dean and protected under copyright law. You may purchase and use the pattern for your personal use. You are not permitted to copy these patterns for other people. You may not sell the patterns or teach the projects from them unless you have written permission from Katie Dean. Teaching licenses, equivalent to the cost of the pattern per student must be paid in order to teach Katie’s designs, along with her written permission. You can sell the projects that you make from the patterns, providing you include a label crediting Katie Dean as the designer of the work.

From 1st January 2015, the EU has brought in new regulations regarding VAT. Ordinarily, a business of my size would fall well below the VAT threshold, as was the case prior to that time. However, in their rearrangement of EU VAT law, it has been decided that the way in which VAT is applied to downloaded products will be changing. This is hugely complicated and if you want to find out more, you can read a longer blog on the topic. However, the short story is that, until such time as the EU sorts out the mess they have created, when you purchase a pattern on this website, you will receive it as a PDF that I have manually attached to an email which I will personally write to each customer. I am glad to have the opportunity to talk to each of you personally, but I would also like to apologise if this causes any inconvenience. I will try to ensure that you receive your pattern within 24 hours of placing your order (mostly a lot less time than that), but I know how it feels to see a beading pattern and want to just get started on it, so I hope this delay doesn’t cause you too much inconvenience…it is certainly a step backwards in technological terms! All the free tutorials will remain as automatic downloads and please keep an eye on this page as it is possible that things will change again as the reality of the EU VAT changes kick in! Thank you very much for your support and understanding and do please keep enjoying my work…with the added bonus of even more contact from me!
