A little about me and my patterns--I've been a technical writer for about 18 years for many fortune 500 and fortune 1000 companies. My undergraduate degree is in technical communications and my masters degree is in fine arts: writing.
The instructions I've written here are comprehensive from threading the needle to how to finish your piece. I provide a graphic with every step and every step is ONLY one step.
I teach these patterns in libraries across Long Island. I teach using the patterns and know the spots people have trouble and refine the patterns with each class. In short, my work has been reviewed many times allowing me to make sure that they are complete and thoroughly tested.
You can be sure that you will be able to follow my patterns and create your jewelry!
***NEW & IMPROVED PATTERN***
I have just recently updated this pattern with more detailed graphics for instruction. If you want the entire bead kit--I sell that on my ETSY site here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/105847166/bead-kit-tutorial-dainty-daisies
I have taught this bracelet several times. Most students (with almost NO stitching experience at all) finish the bracelet in less than 2 hours. With experience you could finish in an hour.
This bracelet is woven with Swarovski crystallized pearls in 4mm soft rose with 6mm soft yellow centers. I used finest seed beads in green with gold lining and small green potato pearls to simulate leaves. Makes a great summer bracelet. (Jade chips also look really cute as leaves and are slightly less expensive than the potato pearls)
Add a few flower components to lengthen the piece and it makes an ADORABLE anklet in time for the summer!!
