Micro seed bead hippo charm made with the smallest size (15/0) Delica seed beads. This tiny charm is hand stitched by me, with Miyuki Delica beads in the brick stitch beading method. You will receive the charm shown in photo #1.

Each micro charm has a sterling silver closed jump ring attached to the top to make it easier to use in your own creative designs such as planner/cell phone/bag charm, stitch marker or progress keeper. You could also use it as earring or pendant jewelry components.

♡ Beadwork is made with Miyuki Delica glass seed beads, size 15/0
♡ Approximate measurements (w x h cm): .8 x 1.1
♡ The closed jump ring is sterling silver, 2.15mm (1.25 inner diameter)
♡ Thread used is Fireline
♡ Hand stitched in the brick/peyote stitch method
♡ This is an original Bead Crumbs design based on a pattern that I created and hand stitched

♡ Front view (front and back are the same) with size reference
♡ Sample idea of how these charms can be used. Shown on a ring. Not included with purchase.
♡ Sample of optional PDF pattern

♡ Delica beads are professional quality, cylinder shaped, glass seed beads known for it's uniform cut and wide array of colors. My thread of choice is Fireline. Fireline is processed using micro Dyneema (R) which is a synthetic fiber that is extremely strong.

♡ These charms are lightweight, flexible and quite durable; however, crushing force (like squashing it between your pliers when making jewelry) will crack the glass beads.
♡ The colors you see on your computer screen may not 100% accurately reflect the colors of the samples due to varying monitor settings.

♡ Printed 1 page PDF pattern for the hippopotamus can be included with your purchase. You will need to select the "Charm with Pattern" option from the menu.
♡ The pattern WILL NOT come with instructions. Experience with brick or peyote stitch beading is required. I prefer brick stitch.
♡ The bead colors in the pattern may not be the same colors as the charm you are receiving. I often make color variations in my designs - you can too :)
♡ The charms listed here are made with smaller Delica 15/0 beads. The pattern is for the more common Delica (DB) 11/0 beads. Feel free to substitute to the smaller bead size if you prefer (look for "DBS" beads).
♡ Please view last photo that shows a sample pattern. You will be receiving a printed pattern with similar information (suggested materials, bead chart & legend, computer photo of beadwork).
♡ You are not allowed to copy, distribute, modify, transmit, reproduce, republish my patterns. Please read my policy section for more information.
♡ When you purchase my pattern, you may sell the finished pieces you make. Please credit www.beadcrumbshawaii.com when promoting, publishing photos, selling products made from my designs.

♡ I've been beading and selling my original patterns here on Etsy since 2010. I also teach others how to bead so you can be assured that attention, detail, experience and quality goes into making each of these charms for you! I hope you'll enjoy the charms you see here and find something that you like.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to know how to bead weave when I purchase a pattern?

Yes. You will need to know basic bead weaving stitches such as ladder stitch, peyote stitch and brick stitch. You will also need to know how to add thread (if your existing thread is too short), how to end your beadwork and how to add attachments or connector beads if making jewelry.

If needed, I will try my best to help you along by providing you with tips and video links. Please take time to view this youtube link if you are new to beadweaving, https://www.youtube.com/beadcrumbshawaii

Your listing states "Brick" or "Peyote" pattern. Do I need to stitch my beadwork using that particular method?

Definitely not! Use either Peyote or Brick Stitch to weave your design.

Why don't you show a "starting point" on your patterns?

I do not list a starting point because many beaders have their own preference. Please feel free to contact me if you have a question.

Can I sell my beadwork made from your pattern?

You may sell your finished beadwork made from my pattern as long as
1. You purchased the pattern from my shop or received it as a free pattern that has been shared by me
2. It is made by your own hands (no mass production, wholesale, etc.)
3. Do not imply or claim my original design as your own.

Please link to my shop or tag me on social media when you publish photos, and/or promote & sell your work (online/offline).
