Crescent Mandalas - Instruction Pack

Designed by Chloe Menage 

Embrace the trend for mandala patterns with this CzechMates 2-hole Crescents project that is perfect for intermediate beaders. Be inspired by the huge palette of colours in the CzechMates Crescents range and turn these fun 2-hole beads into fashion-forward Mandala shapes. The pattern includes instructions for all of the shapes shown; the large mandala, mini mandala, spiky flower and small flower motifs. These designs are so versatile and can be used as pendants or part of larger statement necklaces. Different seed bead brands will give a different tension to the finished design, making it more or less curved. Experiment with how you place your Crescent beads to change the look.
