“Stash Buster Bracelet”
May 1, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm$9
“Stash Buster Bracelet“
What I really loved about the bracelet on the cover of the April Bead & Button is the fact that you have the opportunity to mix strung beads of any shape and size along with stitched components. As a beader who primarily weaves, I relished the chance to grab my favorite strand of stones from the wall (amazonite!) and start selecting seed beads that complimented the beautiful blues, browns and greys of the stones. You’ll create a combination of beaded beads and tubular herringbone to integrate in with your other strung beads.
If you find that the memory wire bracelet is bulkier than you prefer to wear, you can simply make several of the beaded beads and string them on flexible beading wire with other beads of your choice, as shown below.

What is a Bead Circle?
Beading at home is a relaxing and enjoyable hobby, there is no doubt about it, but beading as a group is FUN! Several times a month we’ll pick a project, grab our magazines and gather in the beading room at Laura’s. The projects we choose do require some knowledge of bead-weaving and a comfort level with reading patterns since beaders will be working more independently than in a class setting, however one of our staff (also known as your “Beadvisor”) is in the beading room during the session to help if you have any questions along the way. Your Beadvisor will also have made the selected piece ahead of time so that you can see what it looks like completed and will discuss her experience in making it, along with providing suggestions, tips and ideas for adaptations.
