Overview of OGees Board
OGees Board features two sides, allowing design for a variety of stitches including square, peyote, herringbone, right angle, brick, ladder and more; in a variety of seed beads, delicas, and square beads.
Created designs/patterns use the actual beads intended for the piece. No need for software programs or grid paper and colored pencils. The durable white board will show the bead colors brilliantly as you create your design.
Ten bead wells located on both sides hold beads as you create your design. OGees Board allows designing with seed beads sized 16/0 to 08/0. Delicas and small square beads will also work.
Changes to the design are made on the board with ease. Simply remove the unwanted beads and replace them. No muss, no fuss.
Beads are nestled in the board. Rubber feet will prevent OGees Board from shifting on the work surface. When it’s time to finish working on the design for the day, the board is gently lifted and moved out of the way until you are ready to resume creating your design.
Finished seed bead designs can be directly transferred row by row with threaded needle to a loom or hand stitched. No more stitching in the wrong bead. The finished design can also be left on the board as a guide, while using the bead wells of beads to string your design.
The size of the finished product will vary depending on the size of the beads used. Below is an picture of size 16/0 and 11/0 beads on OGees Board. The top row of beads is 16/0, the bottom is 11/0. Both take up the same amount of space on OGees Board, but when strung, the 16/0 make a smaller piece. It is recommended that a few rows of your chosen beads are strung to understand the size of your finished piece.
