This is a wonderful tutorial. It is easy to follow. The pictures show clearly the directions and there are also written instructions. The bracelet is lovely and comes out as shown.
- The step by step pictures were very clear and helpful.
- All materials are available from any local or internet bead source.
- I have a tendancy to jump ahead in my mind, and did, but if you follow the insturctions they are precise.
- I followed the general colorway that Eliad2 shows, as I had similar colors in my stash.
- This bracelet is for intermediate beaders. It takes some time, but is well worth the effort.|
- I have problems at times with tension, but this bracelet held it’s shape. Great tutorial.
I have only made one so far, but plan on adding another in a different color scheme.
