Bead Font


Someone recently requested I put a font I made myself a few years ago to share with other people.
First some disclaimers, I'm not a font designer. I made this for myself to graph out bracelets quickly, it's not even vaguely a professional font. It's a Windows true type font, if anyone wants to convert it to Mac, I'll be happy to post a Mac version too.
Because it was only for my own use originally, it's all done in lower case letters with no symbols or letters. I make no promises with it. I made it in Windows 98 and it worked fine there and in Windows XP which I'm using now. I may possibly update it later, but I haven't yet so I'm not even going to promise that. So take it as an as is thing that might be helpful, but don't expect it to be really polished and done.
It's in flat peyote or brick stitch depending on bead orientation.
Examples were done in 48 pts.

Bead Bracelet Font

If you want more professional fonts, you can find several great free fonts that can be adapted to beads fairly easily, a lot of the "digital" style fonts and cross stitch fonts can be adapted quite easily to square stitch with beads.
You can also use pixel fonts to design your own charts.

Alphabets can be used for bracelets, signatures on necklaces, and cause pins. If it's a short word, you could make a peyote strip and fold it into a ribbon pin. Like the word hope on a red ribbon for AIDS/HIV awareness.

I hope you enjoy this font as much as I do and that it comes in handy for you. Using the font for projects you'll sell is absolutely allowed and encouraged.
