One of the classes I took at the sewing and stitchery expo was a workshop on making a beaded bracelet. I had taken such a class two years ago and this was taught by the same person, but a different style.
I got 4 units done in class. I will do enough units to make this the length needed to use as a fancy band for my medical ID.
Here is a closeup view of the units I made.
I like this instructor and the way she writes her patterns so I bought another of the bracelet kits (different pattern) and a necklace kit that I can wear with my fancy cruise clothes.
I made the one from 2 years ago too large so I am going to remove some of the units to make it fit my ID bracelet as well.
