My awesome soup partner, Kristen Stevens, shared her tutorial for the Pop Up Pearl Bracelet with me and it is...so cool!
I jumped right on the chance to do it - to prove to myself that I can do more complicated beadweaving. The tutorial is written very well - there were many pictures to guide me along the way. The first component took me awhile to figure out, but after that I flew (well, that is a bit of overstatement because I'm still pretty slow with it, but I definitely was quicker with the remaining parts). I used 8mm blue goldstone beads instead of pearls and only used 8 of them (my wrist is smaller) and it turned out spectacular - so pretty. Especially for this beginner. :)
