Pattern Description:

The Plum Blossom Beaded Bead, made in China for centuries, was where this all began. When I had mastered the basic Plum Blossom, I started playing around with different Czech bead shapes and substituting those shapes where a round bead once would have been. What a wild and wonderful journey I have had with this bead. Using all types of bead shapes has opened up into a never ending creative adventure. Come join in the fun.
Every beaded bead in this bracelet is slightly different and you will learn how to make each variation in this in-depth tutorial . Each step is illustrated with accompanying instructions. Spend a little time learning the basic Plum Blossom beaded bead and soon you will be making each variation with ease. It all comes down to learning a little formula that you can switch out what type of bead you use in various location. It is endlessly creative.
