Mermaids Treasure Necklace

This beading pattern combines two basic stitches, chevron and fringe, to create a fun-to-wear 18" necklace that’s like a spring garden. The mermaid who loves this necklace can be found near the Lorelei Rock of the Rhine River in Germany enjoying the fragrances of beautiful wildflowers. Dangling fringe, the longest 2½” and the shortest 1", contain beautiful Czech glass flowers and leaves. Splashes of color peak through leafy seaweed-like fringes.

Ripples 2 ruffles

Ripples 2 Ruffles Bracelet

Two techniques are used in this bracelet: ladder stitch to create the center spine and Ndebele, or herringbone, to create the wavy sides of the bracelet. The first variation, Ripples, is not very wavy; the second variation, Ruffles, is much wavier. Both versions are included in the tutorial. The tutorial includes six pages of detailed step-by-step directions and colored graphic illustrations.

Shaggy Spirals Necklace

This beading pattern combines two basic stitches, spiral and fringe, to create an elegant 20" necklace that’s not just for formal events. I wear mine everywhere, even to the grocery in my jeans. Center front is a 10" section of fringe work showcasing 310 crystal bicones. “Bling” is the optimal word for this classy creation. Splashes of purple and teal catch the eye every time you move.

Siren's Song Necklace

This design combines two basic stitches, chevron and fringe, to create a fun-to-wear 18½" necklace that’s not just for the beach or a cruise. Dangling fringe, the longest 2” and the shortest ½", give the impression of seaweed floating in the ocean currents. Gold sparkles peak through the green seaweed, mimicking light reflecting on the water. If you’ve never done the chevron stitch or fringing, don’t worry. My detailed step-by-step directions and colored graphic illustrations are easy to follow.

True Love Bracelet

Romance is in the air! Make this romantic bracelet using a technique called crossweave or two-needle right-angle weave. The edge of the right-angle units is embellished with beading to give it a lacy look. The clasp is a beaded bead that’s easy to make. The 4-page tutorial includes detailed step-by-step directions and colored graphic illustrations. If you’ve never done two-needle right-angle weave, don’t worry. My directions are easy to follow!
