I've been designing beaded jewelry for about 8 years. My initial attempts at designing were to make beautiful jewelry with semi-precious (healing) stones. The beads kind of took over my life and I'm not particular what I use to design with as long as it is a high quality bead.
I can't say I have a favorite stitch or type of bead, but lately I've been experimenting with the new Twin beads and Super Duos.
Next on my to-do list is design some items with Cubic Right Angle Weave with the Twins. It works in my head, now to put thread and beads to it.
Bright silver lined rocailles form figure eights through the middle of this bracelet. Make it with all 6mm pearls or combine pearls with faceted rounds. Repeat pattern makes it possible to make the bracelet the length you like it.
Pattern includes pictures of finished bracelets, fully illustrated, step by step instructions for the bracelet and for a toggle and loop clasp. Instructiions for attaching either the beaded toggle and loop or a commercial toggle of your choice.
Approximate Finished size:
1/2 inch wide X desired length
6mm pearls or faceted rounds, 3mm faceted rounds or size 8 seed beads, size 15 rocailles
two needle right angle weave
