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
