“Lane and Cara’s instructions and photos are the best I’ve experienced – they constantly amaze me with how easy they make bead weaving. This pretty poinsettia bracelet worked up fairly quickly and will look great with the matching earrings. I can’t wait to make the necklace!” – Mary

“The tutorial is the BEST step-by-step I’ve seen. I just ordered other kits. Well done! Thanks for the quick ship, too. :)” – Genelle

Finished Russian spiral Christmas tree earrings

“This pattern is extremely well written. I have made several different patterns from Simple Bead Patterns and they have all been terrific. Some times patterns seem to be written by experienced beaders who take for granted a certain amount of knowledge and expertise. Not so with these patterns. Possible mistakes are anticipated and corrected, steps that might seem obvious are deliniated anyway. Helpful reminders are included throughout. These earrings in particular are pretty and festive and easy to make.” – Margaret

“My favorite business to buy tutorials from! As always, the instructions and accompanying photos are clear and easy to follow, even for a new beader such as myself.” – Snickerdoodlejr

This pattern is so easy and well put together with easy to follow instructions and great pictures. I usually need videos but this was just as great. I finished this in 4 days and it’s stunning. Blue greens on one side and pinks and yellows on the other to match my bright clothes. Any colors can be used and I highly recommend this to anyone, even beginner beaders.” – Jeanelle

I modified the calyx slightly to suit my needs and I’m delighted with the finished result.” – Carol
