Lacework Bracelets

front cover - Lacework Bracelets tutorial by Karen Williams

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.


* Eighteen professionally designed pages featuring
* Over sixty full-color photographs and illustrations
* Step by step instructions for random right angle weave
* Detailed project notes for a single color bracelet along the lines of my DragonflyLace, Lavender Smoke or Blue Leaf Lattice
* Detailed project notes for a color-blended bracelet from my Glacial Ice series
* Detailed notes on creating color bead blends
* Suggestions for incorporating your button closure into your design
