How do you design? Do you imagine it all in your head and then put it together -- and everything snaps into place? Uh huh, thought so.
If you're like me you need to see something a little more concrete than the design floating around your head. That's what Design Boards are for.
Design boards are available in a variety of sizes. The 28 inch 3 channel board is our most popular. The outer channel is measured in inches, with zero at the center. Beads arranged up to the 9 on either side will make a necklace about 18 inches long.
The inner channel is measured in millimeters, and using the three channels helps when designing a multi-strand necklace of graduated lengths.
While the 28 inch 3-channel board is our most popular, you might also want a 40 inch single or multi-channel board if you are especially fond of long necklaces. If you make a lot of bracelets, the 11 inch straight board is a good choice, or the 20 inch straight board.
When looking for little helpers with bead design, design boards fill an important need. Add one to your beading supplies and you'll wonder what you did without it!
