2016 Project: Beaded bead #18

Bead #18 is the "Treasure Trove beaded bead" by Cynthia Newcomer Daniel.
It was featured as bead #4 in Beadwork Magazine's 2012 beaded bead contest. The pattern is in the August/September 2012 issue. I didn't use the exact beads called for in the pattern because I didn't have them. I did use the right size to substitute :) I really like it!


It is really is a beautiful beaded bead with embellishments!


It was fun to stitch, and quite easy once I understood how to make it.

If you haven't heard of Cynthia Newcomer Daniel, check out the most recent (October/November 2016) Beadwork Magazine! There is a great article about her on page 38. There is also a preview pattern from her most recent book Modern Beaded Lace which you can buy hereon Amazon, and many other places if you Google. You can also check her out on Etsy, in her shop "JewelryTales". It has over 100 beading tutorials!!

Where to find the pattern for this bead:

 Of course you can find it in Beadwork August/September 2012. (again it is sold out at Interweave as of my blog post)

Instead of Googling for hours trying to find a link to this pattern, I sent Cynthia a message on Facebook and asked her if there was another place to get the pattern: She replied back immediately and....Voila!
Cynthia sells this pattern under the name "Rosebud beaded bead" in her Etsy shop! It is a different colorway than the magazine, but it is the same beaded bead!

8 beads to go!

My remaining deadlines are:

Fall dates: (7 beads) 9/22, 10/6, 10/20, 11/3, 11/17, 12/1, 12/15

The last bead will be "due" on 12/29!


Thanks for reading and Happy Beading! -Beth
