Jewish Pattern Instructions
See my BEADIE PAGE, for basic instructions.

Also see my Bible and Jewish Holiday Bead Projects Page.

Mini Bead
Regular Bead Stars
49 beads.
3 feet of cord or curling ribbon.

Make sure to keep the ribbon/cord loose when you get to row 3 and after 7 to allow for the longer rows. Otherwise it will curl.

To see great instructions and diagrams with arrows explaining how to make my design in blue and white beads etc. see Making Eileen's Star of David Pattern.

7 feet of cord

Small Black Shofar:

The bumps of the horn are made by not doubling through(skipping ) one bead as you start the next row.

# 14
I had to laugh when I saw the colors of the beads in this picture!
We used a computer scanner instead of a digital camera and it seems to have added a lot of light. I thought I used all clear and transparent blue. Some must have been color changing or gold. Plus I skipped a clear bead and if you count the beads in the picture carefully, you will catch my mistake. Oh well..
The directions here are a bit complicated!
6 light blue beads.
48 clear beads.
2 feet if ribbon.
1. String on one blue bead on one cord. Double back through.
2. String on 5 clear beads on one cord.
3. String on one blue bead on same cord and go back through with the SAME cord.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 - two times.
5. Take other cord. 6. Repeat steps 2 and 3 - three times.
7. Twist and tie the two cords to make a circle.(You made the outer circle)
8. Weave one cord back through 3 clear beads on left. 9. String on 3 clear beads.
10. Go through the center clear bead(the third one)of the outer circle.
11. Repeat steps 9 and 10 - six times.
12. Weave back through the 2 clear and one blue of the bottom left center.
13. Tie off. Pat your self on the back!
