While in walmart, i passed the craft section, which is dangerous, because i cant NOT buy something, ya know? so i picked out some bead thread, some clasps, some pretty beads, and viola!

I saw one identacle in the store today, and thought HEY! i can do that. so i did it. the color is actually alot more vibrant than the scan showed

I made this one for my boyfriend. same design, just more boyish

and i made this for my pregnant friend. it says "Mamacita" in case you cant see it, which means Little Momma.  Cheesy

I'm rather proud of myself.
i wish i had more beading patterns. you know, something more intricate? oh well.

Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.

Hi Brandiegurl --

If you want to stick primarily to bead*stringing* you actually don't need anything at all that resembles a pattern.

 [[to beadpeople the term "pattern" almost always refers to beadstitching or beadweaving or beadlooming, which are quite different from beadstringing]].

'Complexity' in beadstringing mainly comes down to understanding & being able to apply a few basic rules & basic techniques -- getting & knowing how to use a few beading tools -- and understanding how and when to use various specialty-type findings/beads/clasps & stringing materials.

Once you get that stuff down you can reproduce or approximate or simply invent all sorts of designs.
Some time when you happen to be in a reasonably big bookstore that sells magazines, leaf through a copy of BeadStyle or Bead&Button & I think you'll see what I mean. 

Understand about the can't-pass-by thing.  You & I might be seeeeriously dangerous if we ever went shopping together. Just for one example : I *adore* textiles in general; never could manage to resist buying *something* whenever I spot fabric whether in realworld stores or online, especially if the fabric is unusual in some way &-or is natural-fiber (especially silk or linen) &-or is vintage ... ... ... and gee I don't know how to sew.
