This week's bracelet is based on beaded bead #14 that I covered in my blog post from July 2016. As I covered in that blog post I got the original pattern for a beaded bead from a wonderful blog by Vezsuzsi. The pattern for the starter bead can be found here. I took one of those beads and built the next one on top of it. It is something that I made a bracelet out of then started a new piece and never finished... Here are the finished bracelets I made this week. The purple one was the UFO that I finished. I also made the alternating one of out of some of the Picasso finished beads. I really like them both.
Did I mention that the purple one glows in the dark?!
Here are all three of the bracelets I have made using this idea.
To make a bracelet from these beaded beads I simply start the next bead from the end of the previous bead. Each new bead shares a bead with the previous and next!
The tutorial on how to make this beaded bead is found here. Big thanks to Vezsuzsi who deserves all the credit for this bracelet- without her wonderful free instructions, this bracelet would never exist! FYI- She has an Etsy shop that has over 50 different beaded bead tutorials. You can also find her on Facebook! Check her out- give her some beady love!
Next week (which for bead honesty I will share I have already started on) I am going to use some of my stash and make one of my personal favorite pieces of jewelry. My Craw "wrap" bracelet using Unicorne glass teardrop beads. I currently have three of these bracelets that I wear all the time. Every time I make one I want to keep it and love it more than the last. My goal for next week is to make as many of these bracelets as I can. It is going to be my only beading project(s). I do have other things to do this week, so I expect to make 4 of them. We will see! Check out next week for more! Now for the tease picture :)
