So, another month has passed! Which means time to take a little look back at the new May 2019 beading patterns.
As I hinted last month, I have abandoned the beaded bead challenge…at least for the moment. I’m sure I will make some more beaded beads this year, but possibly not one a week!
This month, I’ve been reviewing Bead Flowers and I’m trying some new directions. So, that means seriously scaling back on kits and beads. For the most part, they just don’t sell. So, why stock them? I’m not getting rid of quite everything. For the moment, the stock I am discontinuing is all on sale here.
I may add more to that as time passes. So, bear that in mind. If there are kits or beads that you want, don’t assume they will be around forever.
Online courses and virtual workshops
Then, I have decided to start putting into practice an idea that I had a long time ago. Since I can no longer teach in person, why not teach online?
I’m trying a few different ideas and will see which (if any) work out. So, you will now find a whole new section in my shop, ‘Online Classes’. I’m setting up a mix of classes that will help you gain skills, or make projects.
You can check them out here. And make sure you keep checking back as I will be adding more.
May 2019 Beading Patterns
So, that brings me to the May 2019 beading patterns. With all that other stuff going on, as you might imagine, I have fewer new patterns to offer you this month. (Which might leave you breathing a sigh of relief!)
I started the month with a necklace pattern. This is an adaptable design that you can easily turn into a bracelet. So, if you’re thinking about jewellery for summer holidays, this would be a great option. It’s quick to make and lovely to wear.
Then, I have a fun Peyote stitch bracelet that is perfect for the season. Celebrate the natural world – and use up some of your Delica stash – with this design. You can easily adapt it to fit any wrist size. Plus, I’ve shown you a clever way to attach a concealed slide clasp.
Lastly, to finish up, I have two new beaded pen patterns for you. One is inspired by the season, just as the bracelet you see – my Spring Beaded Pen pattern.
The other was inspired by a trip to the theatre. It makes the perfect gift for anyone who loves theatre. Or, if you’re trying to think of gifts to give teachers at the end of the school year, this would be perfect for an English or Drama teacher.
So, that’s all your May 2019 beading patterns…enjoy!
I’m heading off to continue with preparations for International Beading Week. If you want to be a part of the beadalong, get a free pattern, or find out what else is happening, follow this link>>
