This past year I wrote a beadweaving design book. It will be published by Running Press and will be released August 2014. This design was originally intended for the book but I had more designs then I needed.
This bracelet uses cube beads which I adore. I also use peyote stitch (fully documented/explained in pattern) and what you're left with is a great bracelet that feels as soft as a leather cuff. It's great!
I adore this bracelet and wear it almost daily.

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!
