Bracelet Design Tutorial Published in Beadwork!

Feb-Mar 2017
p. 44

I am so excited to finally be able to share this design with you! It’s my debut jewelry tutorial project design with Beadwork magazine. I love that it is showcasing how to use Soft Flex beading wire in a non-traditional way – with Kumihimo! This design uses a flat braid pattern made with the square kumihimo plate combined with superduo two-hole beads.

I just love the elegant look of the braided wire and the flat braid is so comfortable to wear.

 

If you get a chance, I hope that you will check it out and give it a try!

I adore the texture and shimmer in this design. Soft Flex beading wire colors complement the etched shell donut pendant by Lillypilly Designs perfectly. The gold cubes and button clasp add an elegant touch and the hand wrapped bronze wire crimp covers give the design the hand forged feel I love so much.

The autumn issue of Belle Armoire Jewelry features a must-see Designer Collection by the ICE Resin Queen Susan Lenart Kazmer. Learn how to create textured polymer clay jewelry, embossed pendants, and gorgeous metal manipulations, plus, you won’t want to miss a tribute to turquoise stones. From winding wire in innovative ways to creating colorful clay collaboration bracelets to a pendant necklace that pays homage to leaves and nature, there is something for every jewelry artist to try their hand at. What an honor! I have been a lover of ICE Resin for years and it’s so cool to be in a publication with the ICE Resin Queen! Pick up your copy at a bookstore or the Stampington & Company website and get full instructions on how to create my macrame bracelets on pages 16-19.

The knitted Soft Flex Beading Wire is stretchy and flexible, the red beads add a hint of sparkle, the hard copper hand wrapped cones give the hand forged feel I love so much and the centerpiece is an intricate bezel design I picked up at the 2012 Bead&Button show by Kerri Fuhr with my original art print “Autumn Vines” set in resin.
