Wheat Berry Bracelet

The Wheat Berry bracelet is worked in Ndebele stitch. Ndebele stitch is also known as

herringbone stitch because of the way the beads set up like >>> for a herringbone effect. Ndebele is believed

to be named after the African tribe from whom it originated. The bracelet is basically worked in flat Ndebele

with a combination of seed bead sizes, fringe beads and twin beads. The designer has changed some aspects

of the traditional Ndebele thread path to create the texture of the bracelet. The bracelet is worked lengthwise

and is finished with a four attachment point clasp.
