    Beadwork Design you design for bead size?
    by chickasaw604
    To clarify, if you are drawing up a design, do you make sure that spaces between say, two lines are going to fit for example, round numbers of rows of two needle flat stitch Czech 11/0 seed beads, so you don't get stuck with spaces that are half a row wide?

    I'm dealing with lots of odd...

    Than there...

    Grassdancer Headband
    by savanalady
    I've designed a pattern for a headband that I'd like to make for my fiance. I've decided to do it in peyote flat stitch. I'm all ready, buuuut......I don't know where to get my beads. I went to Crazy Crow and I found German seed beads, italian, czech, etc, etc. I didn't realize there were so many types?...
