O Bars

O Bars

Inspired by Starman’s release of the new CzechMates Bar Bead the O Bars Bracelet is worked in an adaptation of Ndebele Stitch with O Beads, two-hole Bar beads and size 11° beads. It has a supple drape and is easy to wear. What makes it unique is the way the Ndebele columns are worked with the O Beads and size 11° beads replacing the Bar bead on one-half of each Ndebele column. Use all one color of bar beads or multiple colors for a dramatic effect. It works up quickly.

Nessie Bracelet

Nessie Bracelet

Inspired by the new ‘mini duo’ beads. I always love to see how new bead shapes stitch up with traditional beading techniques. Got Mini Duos? Got Two hole CzechMates Crescents? The Nessie Bracelet combines both with size 15° Japanese seed beads to create a delicate, ethereal, soft and supple bracelet that looks as if the Loch Ness Monster is rising from the lake. Worked in a faux Ndebele herringbone stitch this bracelet is a must for your bracelet collection.

Pyramid Scape

Pyramid Scape

This stunning necklace is reminiscent of ancient Egyptian jewelry. The Pyramid Scape necklace has nine dimensional peyote pyramids fastened across its center to represent the Ennead also known as the all-powerful 3x3 Triple Triad - completion, fulfillment and attainment. It is designed using multiple colors of CzechMates two-hole brick beads. Wearing the necklace promotes a sense of optimism and good cheer. You will learn peyote stitch with two-hole beads and learn to stitch the pyramids in a unique dimensional peyote stitch designed to create height with beads as well as color.

QT Bracelet

QT Bracelet

Inspired by the new CzechMates QuadraTile (four-hole) Bead the QT bracelet is worked in an adaptation of square stitch. Its depth created by layering the QuadraTiles and riveting them in place with O Beads and seed beads. What makes it unique is the way the QuadraTile layers add dimension and depth. A must have for your bracelet collection!

Quadrille Bracelet

Quadrille Bracelet

Inspired by the CzechMates QuadraTile four-hole bead the Quadrille bracelet is worked in an adaptation of two-drop Ndebele stitch with the QuadraTiles added as you stitch the rows. It gets its name from the way the QuadraTiles dance across the bracelets surface with military precision.

Bead Dreamers

Forty years of friendship, artistic passion, and a desire to share their beading knowledge and designs led to the creation of Bead Dreamers. Based in Minnesota, Bead Dreamers is the showcase for our original jewelry designs. Introduced to off-loom bead weaving in 1994, Bead Dreamers has been designing jewelry, authoring and illustrating patterns, teaching and doing trunk shows for the past 12 years at bead shops, bead societies and guilds, and bead shows at a local and national level.


Our design philosophy is to design for the novice to intermediate bead artist but to incorporate elements that appeal to the advanced bead artist and to keep the time to finish a project between three to ten hours.


Our patterns provide detailed, step-by-step instructions with full-color illustrations to guide you through every step of the project. Certain patterns also offer accompanying kits that include the necessary beads and supplies to complete the project.

Beading is a dynamic, versatile art form that has brought us years of enjoyment. We wish to bring that joy to you, and to assist you in developing or advancing your foundation in technique and to help instill in you the self-confidence to design and create on your own.


All patterns are original, copyright protected, Bead Dreamers designs and cannot be reproduced, distributed, sold or taught without written consent of Bead Dreamers. If you have any questions, please contact us at beaddreamers@gmail.com.


We are active members of the Upper Midwest Bead Society in Minneapolis, MN.
