Custom Made Jewelry
for the ANIMAL in YOU
By clicking above you'll be taken to the Designer PaintApplet. A wonderful little program which was generously given to the public and modified here to suit bead design work.
Simple to use: just pick six colors, and then choose the appropriate graph for your project. The PaintApplet allows you to select a color (from your six) and fill in a bead by clicking on it.
What can you do with it?
You can make up your own designs on the spot, or copy something you've seen before. Transfer a photo to a bead arrangement. Make changes and adjustments ahead of time. Make a printout of your design and use it as the pattern for a project.
You might also try visiting the Native American Indian Designs page to gather some ideas before you begin. I am sure you will find this to be an extremely useful tool in helping you achieve the designs you want. It's a lot of fun and the possibilities are endless.
Want to copy the graphs?
Here you can choose from several different blank graphs, which you can copy, to your own computer and color using any "paint" program. This allows you to create a picture of any seed bead project before you begin work on it!
Here are your choices:
Click on the link and you'll be taken to the graph image.
I hope these are helpful to you. I'll try to add more in the future. I would appreciate any suggestions you have as to how to make the Designer even more useful to you.
