Beaded Wrap Bracelets

I hadn't done any beading in a while, and I'd seen a tutorial here for a beaded wrap bracelet that I wanted to try, so I had a little play yesterday afternoon. I used a smaller size of bead than in the tutorial, and made a longer length so that it would wrap around my wrist twice.


4mm Chrysocolla beads




4mm Black/Brown Agate beads


The first one took me a couple of hours, but the second one was quicker...it was a bit fiddly at first, but easy once you know how. I can see myself making lots of these with different coloured gemstones!

Love your bracelets Helen, especially the blue one. I haven't done any beading for ages apart from one made with beads that look like packets of Love Hearts and a really simple one with little disc beads and some metal beads. I'll need to put them on my blog soon.
