Adele Kimpell of BeadDreamersLLC is based in Minnesota. She is self taught. She started beading back in 1994.  She said she "has been designing jewelry, authoring a nd illustrating patterns and teaching for the last fifteen years at bead shops, bead societies and guilds, and bead shows at a national level."

What makes her designs so special?  She teaches technique and stitches through her tutorials which are not too complicated and yet incorporate appealing elements.

Some of Adele's pictures are unfortunately low resolution, so I tried to pick designs which have the clearest pictures as well as my favorites from her store.

One of her bestsellers is this lovely Claudia necklace-  shown above -which features three bead tubular netting and simple right angle weave.

This bright Parrot Tulip flower necklace below teaches how to do tubular and circular Ndebele /herringbone.

She also has a delightful way of naming her design tutorials. This is the Don't Cry over CRAW/PRAW (prismatic right angle weave) necklace tutorial :

This lovely bracelet tutorial uses Ndebele or herringbone stitch :

Adele finds inspiration other crafts. This all peyote bracelet design tutorial is entitled Maggie Splits and Tubes   was inspired by Maggie Jackson, the Irish knitwear designer. Adele explained, "Blessed with the good fortune to be a participant in a weekend retreat where Maggie was the guest instructor, I just had to translate what I learned with linen yarn into beads."

This is the Maggie Picot Flaps bracelet design below.

This beautiful necklace tutorial uses Minos and Japanese seed beads. Adele says this pattern will teach you "to shape Right Angle Weave into oval links and the onion domed center medallion of the necklace."

 Ruffle Your Tila bracelet tutorial has the tilas sticking out!

Netting is the stitch behind the interlocking Chinese coins bracelet.
