Ladybird beaded bead designed exclusively for IBW 2020


I designed this little beaded bead (its diameter is just 12 mm) exclusively for International Beading Week 2020.
I named my creation Ladybird Beaded Bead, because the red one remembers me to a tiny cute ladybird.

If you create one piece it can be used as a tiny pendant. From two pieces you can make a pair of earrings. From more pieces you can create longer earrings, and if you can’t stop beading them – as I did 🙂 – you can make a bracelet, or a whole necklace from them.

This pattern is based on the Chenille Stitch developed by Geneviève Liebaert.
