“Sparkling Twisted Herringbone Bracelet”
Laura’s Beads prepared the pattern for the bracelet shown above and will distribute a copy to all participants of this Bead Circle. Special credit should be given to Jennifer Biedermann whose Twisted Herringbone Flower Bud bracelet video was the inspiration for our piece and you’ll see that the base stitchwork is done the same on both bracelets. You can see more of Jennifer’s work on her website www.jenniferbiedermannjewelry.com. Thank you also to one of our Wednesday beaders, Kathy S, who brought in her own version of one of these bracelets and inspired us all to make more!

This sparkling bracelet is easy and repetitive to stitch, but has such an intricate look when completed! It wears like a bangle, but the subtle magnet clasp makes it easy to take on and off. You’ll want to make more than one!
A nominal $9 fee is charged to participate in these sessions or you can use your Laura’s Bead Addicts Membership Club Card. We kindly ask that you always use supplies from Laura’s Beads when in our beading room. Thank you!.

What is the Weekly Bead Circle?
Beading at home is a relaxing and enjoyable hobby, there is no doubt about it, but beading as a group is FUN! Each week we’ll pick a project, grab our magazines and gather in the beading room at Laura’s. The projects we choose do require some knowledge of bead-weaving and a comfort level with reading patterns since beaders will be working more independently than in a class setting, however one of our staff (also known as your “Beadvisor”) is in the beading room during the session to help if you have any questions along the way. Your Beadvisor will also have made the selected piece ahead of time so that you can see what it looks like completed and will discuss her experience in making it, along with providing suggestions, tips and ideas for adaptations.
New to bead weaving?
Attend one of our bead-weaving classes and learn everything you need to know about bead weaving. Classes are small, so you’ll have plenty of teacher time. You’ll familiarize yourself with the terminology of bead weaving so you’ll start to understand how to read patterns and practice various stitches and techniques. In no time at all you’ll be ready to join in the Bead Circle!
