I was actually planning on posting a Christmas ornament pattern today, but after hours of stitching and more "frog stitch" than I like to think about, it didn't work out. So that's back to the beginning and will be posted as soon as I get the new one done.
In the meantime, a friend requested a Hamsa pattern. So here's that!
Here's the latest article from the Beadwork site at BellaOnline.com.

The hamsa or hamesh hand is used in many cultures as an amulet for luck. Here's a couple brick stitched patterns and a blank graph for designing your own.
There is also a review of Making Elegant Jewelry by the publisher of Bead Style Magazine here.
