Several years ago we were first introduced to this creative and festive bead pattern by Josie Fabre and fell in love! Now our friends at Bead & Button have generously made this project a free download on their website for everyone to enjoy; see link above. The original pattern calls for a 27mm rivoli, however we have come up with modified counts for use with an 18″ rivoli that we will share with participants of this bead circle.

A nominal $9 fee is charged to participate in these sessions or you can use your Laura’s Bead Addicts Membership Club Card. We kindly ask that you always use supplies from Laura’s Beads when in our beading room. Thank you!

What is the Weekly Bead Circle?

Beading at home is a relaxing and enjoyable hobby, there is no doubt about it, but beading as a group is FUN! Each week we’ll pick a project, grab our magazines and gather in the beading room at Laura’s. The projects we choose do require some knowledge of bead-weaving and a comfort level with reading patterns, however you will have a “beadvisor” in the beading room during the session to help if you have a question. We will also have made the piece ahead of time so that you can see what it looks like completed and will discuss our experience in making it, along with providing suggestions, tips and ideas for adaptations.

New to bead weaving?

Attend one of our bead-weaving classes and learn everything you need to know about bead weaving. Classes are small, so you’ll have plenty of teacher time. You’ll familiarize yourself with the terminology of bead weaving so you’ll start to understand how to read patterns and practice various stitches and techniques. In no time at all you’ll be ready to join in the Bead Circle!
