There I was, sitting at one of my beading group meetings, next to Elizabeth Townes. She was assembling a thoroughly gorgeous bracelet which I immediately coveted. Um…. I said. Is this a pattern you’ve designed? Yes, says Liz. Um….. I say again. I am nothing if not eloquent. Would you like someone to test it for you? Absolutely, says Liz. When my daughter has done the layout printwork I’ll make up a kit. You can keep the bracelet when you’ve finished working through the pattern and given me notes.
Um…..I said. You see the pattern here?
So Liz did as she said, and I worked through and made notes on the pattern. And get to wear this very romantic bracelet practically every minute of the day. And if I didn’t worry about it catching on something during the night, I would wear it then.
Look how the crystals run along. They are stitched on top of cubic right angle weave components.
Pretty eh? This one stays in my jewelry collection.
You can find kits and patterns at Elizabeth’s website – BeadJeweled Inc., along with books and a list of her workshops.
