Free Elephant Kiss Bead Pattern

For all you nice people who have kindly requested this Elephant Kiss pattern, here it is! Thank you for taking the time to ask permission to use this design❣

These sweetheart elephants were originally sold as a bracelet in 2013. Though the pattern was not released until this year, the beadwork has been reproduced...I've seen it shared online 😕. A few months ago I took the pattern down from my Etsy page to do some updates but rather than relist it, I've decided to post it here so my beading buddies can enjoy for free too!

Have fun!

Mini Turtle Charms

The fun part of beading is the design suggestions I receive from you. Though I can't accommodate all suggestions...I certainly try :)  I would never have thought of making a tiny purple turtle charm but I did because it was requested (Thanks Trudie!).
