Pattern Description:

This is a bead weaving tutorial that will teach you how to stitch this beautiful bracelet. Some bead weaving experience is needed, if this is your first time beading then I would say that this is for the intermediate to experienced beader. You will be working with a cross over and layering technique. This pattern is great as a gift for yourself or your favorite beader.

Because this bracelet is done with pearls, when you put this on it is so smooth on your skin since what touches your skin is the pearls. I have had so many people grab my wrist and ask me where I bought this bracelet so they can get one, they are amazed that they can make it themselves. I have even made these for weddings, proms and for charity balls. I think you will love them too, because once you make one you will want to make more. I know I did!
