You may not live on a tropical island, but once you weave up this bracelet you'll be wearing a piece of paradise on your wrist!
This pattern is to create a SUPER wide cuff bracelet, measuring a whopping 2" across.
Included in this PDF is a full color pattern image, delica bead number and bead count needed, a large easy to print black and white symbol graph, and a word chart.
You'll need 25 different colors of delica beads to make this stunning, realistic bracelet. Exact manufacturer number is included in the PDF. Feel free to use seed beads or delicas you have on hand that are similar to the suggested colors, have fun with it!

My name is Joanna, and I have been bead weaving for over a decade (how time flies). I love creating with those tiny seed beads...it's time consuming but very rewarding!
