I’d been try and failing with the Peyote stitch but because my small beads are irregular shapes and sizes it wasn’t working. I bought myself a couple of packets of Toho beads which came in the post today so I’ll be having a go at that soon.
Anyway this is a Right Angle Weave netted bracelet, I still have a problem with tension but practice makes perfect. I used this tutorial as a guide doing only 2 rows but in time I’ll add more as I work on my tension.
I made this colourful bracelet using beaded ladder stitch and cube beads, I love the colours they remind me the Fruit Salad sweet that I love when I was a kid. It looks really nice on too.
Thought I’d share today’s DIY project using 0.6 beading elastic, a hamsa connector, pearls and spacers. All were purchased from ebay and if you don’t mind waiting they’re usually a lot cheaper if you buy from China etc. The hamsa connectors were 2 for 99p. You cant go wrong can you?
Simply cut your elastic slightly longer than your wrist, knot one end to your Hamsa connector then add a bead and a spacer. Repeat till your bracelet fits your wrist then knot, I’m not very good with tight knots so I usually add a little bit of glue to make the knots a bit more secure. And thats it, one snazzy bracelet
Sat and made for a couple of bits, I really like the way the Vintage Tree came out
Beaded butterfly choker and a bracelet I made as couple of days ago
A while ago I came across a tutorial to make a Chan Luu style bracelet so I decided to give it a go. It turned out quite well if I do say so myself. Oh and it was way cheaper, the originals sell for over £100 but it only cost me less than a fiver to make.
I’ve tried a few bits and pieces over the last few months so I’ll have to start posting them, I’ll include links to any tutorials I use too.
