Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Herringbone Stitch
  • Ladder Stitch

Pattern Description:

Inspired by Amethyst colored rhinestones, here is a beading tutorial in lavender, cream and brown. Using Flat Herringbone Stitch, weave your way up, enclosing the rhinestones in square patterns. It may look like the rhinestones are sewn or weaved on top of the bracelet as an embellishment, but they are actually weaved within the bracelet.

The square pattern is also seen in courtyards, Victorian and English gardens. Shades of violets and lavenders are also considered as Royal colors and so I've picked the name, Royal Gardens, suggested by Karole Bowlds.

The tutorial is suitable for intermediate level and requires basic knowledge of Flat Herringbone and Ladder Stitch. It has in-depth instructions and ultra-clear graphs and close-up photos at each step. Additionally, you can ask me question you have on the tutorial. No more getting stuck and frustrated on a confusing or just plain inaccurate pattern.
