Many people ask me about where do I get my design ideas from or where do I get my beads patterns. I am sharing you the top three site I use. Yes, the sites are in Japanese. If you can't read Japanese, don't worry. I will show you step by step how to get to the important pictures part. If you find one you don't understand, I can help you as well, just email me the picture and I would love to help to translate and troubleshoot for you.
#1 Parts Club
Parts Club is one of the biggest seller of beads and handmade accessories in Japan. Their free "recipes" are absolutely the best out there in my opinion.
If you use google translate, it will automatically translate some of the site's writing into English. If you scroll down, you will see the section you can choose by items or difficulty.
Flowers, flowers, flowers! It is hot, it is green, it is flower season! I found this very good free flower pattern on a Japanese website (Parts Club) and wanted to share it with you. They are very versatile and not too difficult (low intermediate level.) You can make them in any size you want.
Here are some jewelry I made with this pattern.
If you are familiar with beads patterns, these pattern diagrams will be enough for you to start and finish your project. If you need more help, I also have a step by step video process below.
Flower Beaded Ring
The pattern image is from Parts Club. Everything was in Japanese, so I edited the image with english texts.
I love fireworks! They shine in the darkest moments and bring hope to our hearts. I made several firework-inspired earrings. I am doing this symbolic red, blue and white one for today.

5) Repeat the process until you have ten sticks. For the last one, put the string through the blue bead and then the metal stick. Then add a blue bead to finish the layer.
6) For the second layer, add red and white beads to the outer circle. Put one red, go through the blue, put one white and repeat the process for half of the circle, and do the other half with the other string.
7) Put the white pearl + two blue beads + hook + two blue beads through the line. Loop through the pearl then through the blue bead. Pull and done.
8) Tie the knot three times and you are finished!
