Pattern Description:

Do you like a lot of Bling? Well you can get it and more with this bangle, use all crystals and be seen across the room. Or use pearls and crystals for that touch of elegance. Or maybe use firepolish it is totally up to you!

This is definitely a statement piece and you will be noticed when you wear this bracelet, but beware you will get hooked and will want to make more and more and more and.......

This is a tutorial for the Bling Me Up Bangle.

This is a bead weaving tutorial that will teach you how to stitch this beautiful bracelet. Some bead weaving experience is needed, if this is your first time beading then I would say that this is for the intermediate to experienced beader. This pattern is great as a gift for yourself or your favorite beader.

Please note that this is for the tutorial ONLY.

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

This tutorial includes 6 pages of detailed step by step instructions and a material list. I will send an email to the buyer with a PDF attachment after payment has been received.

This is not one of my original patterns, it is a pattern that I found in Portuguese. I do not know who originally wrote this pattern but I have written it in English. The original pattern that I found did not show how to make the turn so I am showing you how to make that turn at the top and bottom of the bracelet. The original pattern only had one picture and left the rest up to you, I do not do that in this tutorial there are 18 graphics.

I'll be adding new designs as quickly as I can make them, so check back often!
