This month’s beading tutorial was a little sneak peak at bracelet #4. I made a whole bunch of tiny peyote tube beads in assorted colors for a fun little ladder stitch bracelet.
My Necklace a Day challenge helped me make a big dent in my bead stash as I geared up for year-end inventory. Even though I’m all done counting stock, I still wanted to move out some older supplies. I was in the mood to use up the last of my cat’s eye rectangles, so I put them on deck for this week’s bracelet.
I didn’t want to use them for an ice-inspired design, which seemed a bit too obvious, so I tried to think of different a way to compliment them. As I was pondering, they started to remind me of the gemstone beads used in leather wrap bracelets. So, I went through my seed bead stash and selected colors that would look good with white, and that would resemble semi-precious stones.
