June marks the first official day of summer, and we kicked off the summer season with plenty of awesome free bead jewelry patterns! Even though it's summer and we're all busy enjoying the warm weather and sunshine, we still found time for making beaded jewelry this month. Whether you took our free bead jewelry patterns on the road with you for your summer vacation, or whether you were making beaded jewelry inside on those scorching 100-degree days to beat the heat, you clearly kept busy beading all month long!
Which free jewelry making projects caught your attention in June? Well it's no surprise that this month's #1 most popular project was a beaded macrame bracelet since macrame bracelet patterns are always huge for the summer season! Yet that was the only macrame pattern that topped the charts this month. The free bead jewelry patterns that most tickled your fancy in June were primarily free seed bead patterns and projects! No surprise there either, since free seed bead patterns are popular all year long. There are also some free wire jewelry tutorials thrown in the mix for all you wirework fans, so there are definitely free jewelry making projects to suit anyone and everyone in this collection. Check out your all our reader favorites below, and get ready to sit poolside this summer with some free bead jewelry patterns!
