About

Thanks for Following My Bead Crumbs!

Aloha & Welcome to Bead Crumbs. I am glad you stopped by…so glad!!

Made in the tropical sunshine of beautiful Oahu, Hawaii.
Inspired by fairytales & created with love.

🌼 I enjoy creating my own patterns and work hard to provide you with new designs. I especially love to make character charms of animals, people & nature. My material of choice is Miyuki Delica seed beads (for it's consistency in color and shape), and Fireline thread (for it's incredible strength and durability). Unless stated, all designs are my original.

🌼 Bead Weaving: I've come up with a "modified" beading technique that works well for my charms & pendants. It involves using thinner FireLine with multiple thread passes through each bead. Though this method is time consuming, it produces very durable, tighter weaves so there is little or no gap between the individual beads and it keeps the thread hidden. It also results in a flexible but flatter piece that minimizes the "curl" in the beadwork so it will retain its shape better when used as earrings or jewelry. Details and perfection are very important to me.

🌼 Patterns: The majority of my items are available as patterns using standard brick or peyote stitch methods. Most of my patterns are made on a Peyote Stitch chart but you may find it easier to turn the pattern sideways and stitch it as Brick Stitch. Feel free to inquire if you would like a pattern for one of my charm designs. Please be sure to read the pattern descriptions carefully. I do not provide instructions but you can always contact me and I will try my best to help you.

🌼 Custom Orders: I can change bead colors for you, make multiple items, turn charms into earrings...contact me. I will be happy to re-create an item that has sold in past but has not been re-listed. Items that are one-of-a-kind may not be available but feel free to inquire and I'll see what I can do. Patterns/designs may be requested. Please note that I will not make a pattern from copyrighted images (Disney, sports team, etc.) ~ thank you for understanding.

Frequently asked questions

What does your pattern include?

*Suggested Supply List that typically includes 6lb FireLine thread, Delica seed beads 11/0, size 12 beading needle
*Bead Legend - includes bead colors with reference to manufacturer's bead no. and bead count.
*Photo of a completed project so you can see an actual finished piece.
*Bead Chart - graphical image of bead placement. The numbers on the bead chart corresponds with the numbers shown on the bead legend.

Am I purchasing a pattern tutorial with instructions?

No. Instructions are not included. Experience with bead weaving is recommended.

Do I need to know how to bead weave when I purchase a pattern?

Yes. You will need to know basic bead weaving stitches such as ladder stitch, peyote stitch and brick stitch. You will also need to know how to add thread (if your existing thread is too short), how to end your beadwork and how to add attachments or connector beads if making jewelry.

I am new to bead weaving. Will you provide pattern support if needed?

Yes. Please note that some of the patterns will be challenging for new beaders. I will try my best to help you along by providing you with tips and video links. There are also a lot of great bead weaving tutorials on YouTube. I suggest that you try a free pattern first before making a purchase. Search "free patterns" at www.HandmadeCuties.blogspot.com. Please don't get discouraged. Practice makes beading even more fun!

Your listing states "Peyote" (or Brick Stitch) bead pattern. Do I need to stitch my beadwork using the particular method stated?

Definitely not! Use either Peyote or Brick Stitch to weave your design. Many of my patterns are created on a Peyote Stitch chart because it's my personal preference. However, when actually beading my piece, I turn my pattern sideways and stitch using the brick stitch technique.

Why don't you show a "starting point" on your patterns?

You can start anywhere you want to. Some people have told me that they like to start from the center moving outwards while others like to start at the edge. I usually start at the widest/tallest point or on the row/column that I plan to attach a connector bead (so I can get that out of the way first).

Why do some of your patterns have loops for hardware while others do not?

It is a personal preference (as of Sept. 2015, new patterns will not show the finishing loop info). Another option, instead of loops or connector beads, is a wire connector. One thing I don't like to do is add a jump ring directly through a bead. The twisting and turning of the jump ring weakens & may crack the bead...and that would definitely ruin your hard work!

Can I request a pattern?

Yes. Please contact me. I do not make patterns of copyright / trademarked images and characters.

Can I reproduce your pattern?

No. Patterns are copyrighted. Please do not reproduce the patterns; prepare “derivative” works based on my patterns; distribute copies of the patterns; teach/hold classes based on my patterns. Thank you for your understanding. However, you can sell your completed beadwork. Credit to BeadCrumbs would be appreciated.

What if I see a mistake on your pattern?

I go over each pattern before I list it for sale; however, if you notice an error, I will be very grateful if you notify me ASAP. I will gladly refund you for the pattern price, issue you the corrected pattern at no cost and compensate you with a freebie for catching my mistake.
