  • Beadwork Design Question...do you design for bead size?

    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 spaces in my design I'm having to get creative to fill with single beads or sideways beads, and I'm wondering if I should be planning this stuff out at the design stage. Or is the weird nooks and crannies stuff just part of the creative fun?

    I'm really new to beading, so all of it's fun, but I'm always happy to hear about smarter ways to do stuff!

      Learning how to bead

      Hey all,
      I was just wondering if anyone knew of places online that teach you how to bead. I want to start beading my own leggings, boots, and jewelry for a buckskin dress I'm getting. I'm moving away from home, so I thought the internet would be the best way to go about learning.
