New This Week at Laura’s Beads – November 17

Bead Circle Update

NEW: The sparkling ruffly “Soft Symmetry” bracelet designed by Kathryn Bowman caught our eye the moment that the nice folks at Bead & Button posted it on their Facet Jewelry website! Using several different colors of seed beads, you’ll follow a graph to stitch a multi-row right-angle weave bracelet, then use a “smocking” technique to cinch the bracelet in certain sections to give it dimension. Finish off with an edging to enhance the ruffles and you’ll end up with a unique and beautiful showpiece! Click on the photo for details and to reserve your seat:

NEW: Wrap around bracelets are casual, funky and fun! The original “Groovy Trax Wrap” by Kathy Cook used groovy tiles, however the smooth tiles we have here at the shop work well for her pattern also. You can either stitch the piece using two needles as Kathy has, or we can show you how to use a one-needle approach if you prefer. ! Click on the photo for details and to reserve your seat:

New This Week at Laura’s Beads – October 10

Bead Circle Update

NEW: We just love the versatility of the “Flower Garland Bracelet” by Regina Payne that is featured in Beadwork Magazine’s special Quick & Easy edition! We not only stitched up one using tila beads and bicones as shown in the magazine, but then we played with substituting pearls and firepolish beads for the bicones, as well as using Czech tiles instead of the Japanese tila beads. Every combination came out unique and worked up beautifully! We also found that you could just as easily stitch the bracelet on a continuous thread, rather than stitching separate components and connecting them, so it’s your preference.  Click on the photo for details and to reserve your seat:

Bead Circle Update

NEW: Flat Chenille Stitch has been one that we’ve been dying to sit down and play with for quite some time! It’s just a little trickier than tubular chenille, but once you get the hang of the turnarounds it moves along quite nicely. It results in a sleek and smooth bracelet that feels good to wear.
