Beaded Bracelet


Today I thought I would share one of my other obsessions – beading! Off-loom beadweaving is one of my favorite beading techniques and this bracelet is a very quick workup! This design was featured in Bead & Button, August 2007 Issue 80 pp 50-52 “Quick Stitch”. To know more about this particular design or to buy a kit, contact the designer Jill Wiseman at Tapestry Beads.


The supplies I used to create my bracelet are as follows:

Bugle Beads – Rainbow Pink 12mm
Seed Beads – Pink size 8
Delicas – Champagne
SpiderWire Fishing Line – 10lb (any thicker and you can’t thread the needle I used!)
Size 10/13 Beading Needle

I order most of my supplies at Fire Mountain Gems. This bracelet is really comfortable and very sleek! If you are intrigued with beading, especially beadweaving, check out Bead&Button magazine for other wonderful ideas!!! Happy Creating! -Melinda

    Great bracelet! I love the colors you chose for it. I get most of my stuff from FMG, too. I’m the seed bead moderator at Stop in and say hi if you want. We’ve got all kinds of talented jewelry artists there, but could always use another seed beader. I think I’ll go check out your Beading category now.

    This bracelet was for my aunt’s birthday! She loved it – now I’m finishing up my MIL’s bracelet, same design but with pearl seed beads and pink delicas.
