My name is Marcie Abney Carroll and I started creating jewelry in 2007. A simple project to repair a simple beaded ring turned into a love of all things beadwoven and beaded in general. I've recently turned my attention toward metal and can be found most nights hammering away in my garage. If you'd like to learn more about me, please stop by my blog: http://labellajoya.blogspot.com.View all patterns by designer (19) »
This easy-to-make bangle is a combination of a woven peyote stitched tube and a wrapped metal bangle. I've recycled a couple of old metal bangles that I had lying around the house and gave them new life with a shot of color from Color Infusions Memory Thread by DMC and Japanese seed beads.
The best part about this project is that it is fully customizable. The Memory Thread comes in about a dozen colors and can be found in the cross stitch section of your craft store. You can use the seed beads that you already have on hand and make the peyote tube as large or as small as you'd like.
These look great when worn alone, or make a few in a complementary color scheme and wear them all together. Have fun creating your own colorful version of my design!
