This stylish bracelet combines 10 mm hammered square links and a variety of seed bead sizes. Beaded arches are stitched between the hammered square links. An attractive handmade clasp finishes off the project. The project is classified as an ‘Intermediate’ project . There are several things about this project that take it beyond beginner - not so much the stitch (just regular peyote stitch) rather you have to play a bit with your thread to get the arches to sit just right. In designing the bracelet we had to fuss with the number/sizes of beads to get arches that would reflect one another and still sit in between the squares. We found that some bead types/sizes do not work as well as others, so our kits take this degree of complexity out of the project.

Ms. Kimpell has been involved in creative endeavors, from knitting to quilting to tatting to macramé, since the age of 13. Introduced to off-loom bead weaving in 1994 she immediately became intrigued with the endless possibilities offered by the vast variety of bead colors, shapes, sizes, and types and has since found her niche in designing with seed beads and off-loom bead weaving.
