  • Bead Designer

    Hey check my new toy I found on the web! Go under glass beads, and click on Interactive Bead Designer.
    Anyone else have a site like this?

    Mato..there are several programs out like this now. I have downloaded the temporary one before for trying out and they are AWESOME!! Most are made for loom or peyote stitch but do include right angle weave and some netting. Simply you scan a pic and it pops up a bead pattern for you and even charts your colors for you! They used to be only Mac but now come prepared for others as well now. A few people I know up here in Alaska have these programs and put out bead patterns like crazy!! Oh yeah, you can click your own designs in as well, you don't have to just scan pics. They are well worth the money if you like to make patterns!

        Hey Soaring, can't remember if it was you or someone else, but I did have a link under Rosettes to a place with free rosette graph paper if that helps you any?

          I have software called Bead Plan and paid $50 for it about 6 years ago. Unfortunately, the company disappeared but the program still works great. Gee, if I had just waited a little longer, I could have downloaded the same thing for free!

            BlackBear, where can I find that program that can be temporary downloaded? I'm pretty new to beading, and I have a very hard time creating designs...The mind goes blank when I look at the beads or paper, its like I go into shock... Well any help would certainly be appreciated

                    Ok there were a few...but right now I can only find one site since I lost all my bookmarkers in the big slip and fall of the magazine war LOL...
                    http://www.gigagraphica.com/beadscape
                    It says in the add that it is $69.95 us payable but is for Mac only.
                    Now also there is a place that you can send a pic to and they will charge a fee to make it into a graph for you..

                    http://www.cochenille.com Software for bead design...it does'nt say mac only so they must have it for both..my guess anyhow.
