Trying my hand at Beadcreator Pro
Here’s a GIF of some screenshots of one of the row-by-row PDFs that you get with Beadcreator Pro. I feel totally spoiled that my first attempt at bead weaving will be with the accompaniment of these schematics.
I finally had a chance to try out Beadcreator Pro and was so glad to find that even without having watched any of the demo videos I was able to create these bracelet designs. I made a bunch of versions of the same bracelet in different colors and these are my favorites. I must have spent thirty minutes having fun with the program just swapping colors. I’ve also tried to learn from Julia’s first experiences with bead weaving, and experimented with either placing contrasting values of color beside each other to make the circle design pop, or the opposite to create a more tonal or random feel.
