Bead Like a Pirate Ideas




It's International Talk Like a Pirate Day again. A day when grownups get to play and remember how much fun it was to stick sword fight and pretend to be pirates.

Download the full sized unshaded version of the pattern above HERE, then click the back button to come back to this page. Print the pattern fit to page.

To bead one of the larger mandala type patterns,I work in odd count peyote because it's fast, I start in the middle and work out to the ends so there are no increases, just decreases. You can also bead this pattern in brick stitch.

In the last few years, there have been a few Bead Like a Pirate articles on this site. Last year was this mini beaded Jolly Roger banner, which still hangs in my dad's truck. A great gift for the hard to bead for.

Jolly Roger earrings in brick stitch,several styles. I wore the pair pictured for the annual Pirate Pub Crawl last weekend, it's a local fund raiser for the Blood Bank of Alaska and it was loads of fun.

Beaded Hair Clips for a pirate look straight out of the movies, this is a fun project to do with children.

Semi-Circle Earrings are more wearable even if you aren't a big pirate enthusiast, but they were a Talk Like a Pirate Day design, based on the idea of "pieces of eight"

Cute Pirate Bracelets for pirate girls. A ninja bracelet for people who prefer ninjas. I also have a very cute Ninja bracelet pattern for sale in my Etsy shop linked at the bottom of this article.

And a Pirate Amulet Bag to bead. The Jolly Roger for this pattern would also be nice in a small frame as a suncatcher.

Good jewelry for Talk Like a Pirate Day would include anything gold, pearls, coin charms and sparkling crystals or semi-precious stones. Just forget restraint and layer it on. Wear your beaded wealth with pride!

If you like mandala type patterns, I have a pattern set available here
