The pattern is for the beaver shown in the photo above. You will need knowledge of brick or peyote stitch bead weaving to complete this design. I chose to do my beaver in the brick stitch method.

The file contains the following information (see sample photo 3 as a guide):

Am I purchasing a pattern tutorial with instructions?

No. The majority of my listings are "Pattern Only"; therefore, instructions are not included. Experience with bead weaving is recommended. For patterns with instructions, please view the listings in the "tutorial" section.

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. Here is a link on YouTube, Search YouTube and online for more tutorials. I suggest that you try a free pattern first before making a purchase. Free patterns are found on my Facebook page, 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?

Please contact me. I am always open to pattern suggestions but may not be able to accept custom pattern requests due to my schedule. I do not make patterns of copyright / trademarked images and characters.

Can I reproduce your pattern/sell my finished work?

No. You are not allowed reproduce the patterns; prepare “derivative” works based on my patterns; distribute copies of the patterns; teach/hold classes based on my patterns. No bulk or factory production allowed. My patterns are copyrighted.

Each pattern is my original work and my intellectual property. Any type of distribution (print, electronically, etc.) is a copyright infringement . You are prohibited from creating beadwork based on a photo you viewed online, or shared with you, without purchasing the pattern from my shop or without my permission

If you purchased my pattern, you can sell your finished work. Credit to is requested when selling &/or posting your photos online.

Thank you for your understanding!

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.
