This is a PDF tutorial to make my beadwoven Clarice Bracelet.
The Clarice Bracelet base is worked in a variation of right angle weave (RAW) and uses either peyote stitched beaded bead tubes or Czech pressed glass tubes as the main focus. The tubes are complemented by an assortment of 4mm rounds and 3mm fire polished crystals, along with beautiful metallic seed beads to create a lovely piece with Art Deco flair.
The pattern includes instructions for making the peyote tubes as well as a matching square stitch toggle clasp, but you can easily substitute a purchased clasp, if you prefer. A toggle can also be made with a glass tube, in which case, it looks nice to add 4mm daisy spacers to either end. Instructions for making the glass tube toggle are included.
These instructions are very thorough, with step by step directions and clear illustrations to ensure your success. If you run into a snag or have a question, email me, I'll help if I can.
My mom taught me to embroider when I was five, little knowing she was creating a craft monster at the time. Fifty years later, I'm still at it, beading, embroidering, knitting, and whatever else strikes my fancy at any given time.
