Pattern Description:

The "Story Teller" is a design idea I had been working on for a very long time, as a way to "tell a story" with a beautiful piece of jewelry.

This tutorial provides step by step instructions to create an interlocking hinged link bracelet with a nearly invisible clasp!! A whopping 21 design ideas and elements included.

!!!Tutorial updated March 2013 to include the basic construction of the "Girl Scout" knot featured in most of the variations. Also updated for appearance, some minor tweaks, and metric conversions.
6 pages, 13 steps and 17 photos added for a total 76 photos and 23 pages.
