Persian Pinks Beaded Box

#beadybug

My little Persian Pinks beaded box pattern has been in the making for about 8 years now.  This little gem started out as a 3-D beaded star, but while making the various components, I started playing around with the shapes and somehow it morphed into what you see now.  Soon after I made the original – the lighter one in the picture- I started home-schooling my 3 children while simultaneously helping my husband with the business we run from home.  Needless to say, my beading days gradually came to a halt while I worked on other crafts that were more portable and required less concentration.  Despite this, I frequently had emails from supporters asking when they could expect the patterns and the answer was always the same….as soon as I am able.

Here I am all these years later with more time available and having eased into the pattern-writing process with my crochet patterns, I decided it was high time to stop procrastinating and get on with it.  I will happily confess to being terrified at the prospect of digitizing my beading patterns- mainly because a) it would involve learning some new techie skills with vector programs to draw up graphs, and b) having absolutely no clue how I originally made the Persian Pinks box in the first place!

The first problem was overcome with the infinite patience and abundant help of my amazing sister – she is also responsible for this beautiful website and you can find her own gorgeous creative designs at https://wordscount.co.za/.  The second problem took days of just turning over the box and staring at it to figure out my starting point for the box.  Eventually I managed to piece it together and put the pattern to paper- and later to computer.  Re- creating the box was so much fun and really challenging, but I’m happy to say that I managed to streamline the original design with some technical improvements. While I check, double check and triple check the instructions meticulously, I hope you will let me know if you find any mistakes or just give me some general feed-back on the project.

I am so thrilled to be releasing this gem of a pattern today that I’ve decided to introduce it at a discounted rate till the end of October and I hope you have many hours of beading satisfaction!

Blessings
