I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season! I have been very busy making items for my Etsy shop during the last couple of weeks, but I also found time to write up a quick beading pattern for my Venetian Angel Pin. This piece is quite different from my beaded dogs and city scenes. It was inspired by my trip to Venice, Italy. I saw so many beautiful angels there, and I thought each one should carry a millefiori glass bead!
This piece is suitable for beginning beaders however, I have not gone into depth as far as explaining basic stitches or how to stitch on the backing (for these, I have referred to my basic bead embroidery tutorial). It does include pattern pieces which you can print out, as well as step by step instructions. If you have done some bead embroidery before, and are looking for a fun project to brighten up the winter, this piece is for you. Please note that this item is a PDF file which will be delivered via email – click the pic for more details. I hope this pattern will inspire you to make a beaded angel for a loved one sending them messages of peace, love, and hope for the New Year:)
