Herringbone Bracelet Fever

 

EDIT: Now with pictures that don’t suck.

Last month I took a beading class at Spearit Beads in Albany, Oregon. The instructor, Darlene Powers, did a great job. (She teaches classes regularly in Albany and the Dallas Antique Mall. You can see samples for upcoming classes at either of those locations. Check it out!) We learned how to make a really nifty bracelet using two-hole beads.

As I am wont to do with a new craft, I went a little crazy after the class. I made a LOT of bracelets, you guys. I modified the pattern very slightly on some of them, because Gods forbid I actually follow directions. Here’s a gallery of just a few of them (click any picture to see a slideshow with commentary).

Similar pieces will be for sale on my Etsy site soon (along with all the other shit I keep promising). Right now I’m working on some super fancy versions for the Corvallis Art Center. More on that in a future post.
