Christmas Lights Charms Bead Pattern

What's more festive than Christmas Lights? Hmmm...I don't know. Once the lights go up in our home, it feels like Christmas for sure! I hope you enjoy this colorful holiday charm design suggested by bead friend, Bonnie.

The pattern to make the mini green and red Christmas lights is now available on Bead Crumbs, Etsy. It takes 162 Delica 11//0 beads in 4 colors to make the lights. You can make micro lights by substituting 11/0's with the tinier 15/0 beads.

December Brick Stitch Class

Are you ready to learn how to make a cute musubi, Japanese rice ball, charm like this one?

Bead pattern by Bead Crumbs
If you are, I'll be teaching a basic brick stitch class at The Bead Gallery, Honolulu, on December 17, 1:00 to 3:00 PM. I would love for you to join us!

Here is the information:

In this beginners brick stitch class, you'll make a simple musubi charm with Miyuki Delica 8/0 beads to develop your needle and thread skills and understanding of brick stitch bead weaving.

A brick stitch is bead weaving stitch that has many variations. This off-loom technique has dense threading that makes it more sturdy and stable, and like its name, the off-set rows made by the beads resemble a brick wall!

Required Skills:
None! Beginners welcome!

Required Tools:
No requirements, just come and enjoy.

Class Price:
$20 includes everything

Student Max: 4
