How to Make Bracelets:
6 Free Beaded Bracelet Patterns For Handmade Bracelet making
I’ve had a longtime love affair with beaded bracelets. You name the bead, I love it. Never met a beaded bracelet I didn’t like. They’re fun to make, fun to wear, and everyone likes abracelet or two (try pairing up a couple of different bracelets sometime when you feel adventurous). I’m pleased to present you with this new collection, How to Make Bracelets: 6 Free Beaded Bracelet Patterns for Handmade Bracelet Making. These are several of our most popular bracelet patterns, sure to whet your appetite and get you going on some serious bracelet-making. Wooded Wonderland by JessItalia Lincoln starts off this beaded bracelet series and shows how to suspend various types of beads, pearls, and crystals in textured “eternity garden” brass rings as well as how to make groovy gunmetal wire spirals. In Cascade of Shades, Elizabeth Murray combines the subtle to darker shades of rose and purple with Bali silver for some great hombre seed bead beauty. Donna Ryan-Kocun’s spool knitbracelet offers both an interesting technique and a hit of vibrant color, showcasing a beautiful focal ceramic bead. New for 2012, we’ve included three new bracelet making projects just for you! Beth Kraft’s Collage Bracelet is a great way to let your creativity roam wild while using up all those “leftover” beads in your stash. Or try combining beaded flowers and hand-dyed silk ribbons in CathyCollison’s Starflower Bracelet. And if you love vintage beads as much as I do, you’ll love Barbara Richard’s Acorn Bracelet. Her peyote stitch bead caps make the perfect accents for some lovely ivory-colored glass beads! Each project includes step-by-step instructions and great photography. As with potato chips, one simply won’t be enough. This eBook will inspire you to kick your bracelet-makingskills up a notch and keep on going. Challenge yourself with a new technique, choose an unusual color, make one for your motherin-law, and try something out of the box. I hope you will enjoy.
