Thank you very much for your compliments on my Starry Night piece. I
have always loved the painting and it made such a beautiful transition
to beads. The graphic doesn't do the finished piece justice. I used
silver-lined Sapphire beads and they just light it up. The pattern is
in four one-page sections for ease of reading. It is the most-rewarding
piece I've done thus far.
For those of you who have had problems navigating the site, www.bead-
patterns.com has a long bar of icons at the top and bottom to help you
get around. You can click on "Patterns & more" on these bars or "View
Patterns" further down the first page to the right if you'd like to see
all of the patterns. If you are interested in one designer, click
on "Patterns & more" or "View Patterns" and use the drop down box under
search that says "All Items" and you will see a list of designers". If
you want to see just bracelets for instance, leave the first drop down
box on "All Items" and type in "bracelet" and click "Go". Note that you
can also enter a price by typing in a dollar amount without the dollar
symbol such as "5.00" and you will get a page or pages of all the
patterns for this price.
If you are opposed to the PDF system, go to the www.bead-patterns.com
page and scroll down to the bottom. You will find a list of links to
the designers websites or e-mail addresses. Click on the designer whose
pattern you would like to purchase and you will be able to contact them
directly for a copy of the pattern.
I hope this helps. Feel free to print this post out for future
