Step It Up Bracelet

May 15, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

“Step It Up Bracelet”

We really loved Kathy Simond’s use of several types of 2-hole beads, including crescents and bricks, to make the sleek look of the base of this bracelet. She then added a subtle embellishment, which is perfect for beginners stitching this piece. However if you would like to dress it up a bit more with the detailed embellishment shown in the photo, Laura’s add-on tutorial will help you accomplish that . We think it produced quite a beautiful group effort!

The original pattern (base design) is by Kathy Simonds and is compliments of Starman. The added top embellishment is by Laura. We will distribute copies of the instructions on the day of class.

Instructor: Laura

Technique: Peyote with 2-hole beads

Difficulty Level: Intermediate 1
If you’ve taken a few beginner classes, are starting to get comfortable with the language of beading and feel ready for the next step, this is the perfect class for you. This project will be just a little more complex than the beginner pieces, but still great for new beaders.
