Blue Leaf Lattice random right angle weave bracelet

Lacework Bracelet

Class Length: 6 hours


Work with seed beads and crystals to create an open, lacework bracelet with a decorative button closure. Random right angle weave embodies the organic feel of the natural world rather than man-made symmetry or precision. No two pieces are every exactly the same, nor are they supposed to be, because no two stitching patterns are exactly alike.

Skills and Skill Levels required for class

All skill levels; some experience working with seed beads would be helpful.
