Goddess of Purple


About this design:

Tutorial availble at www.thegossipinggoddess.blogspot.com/p/tutorials.html?m=1

The top 2 choices are the tutorial.


This bracelet is totally the Goddess bracelet design. I had to use 2 cords on each side because of the size of the hole in my beads. The basic design is to run a cord through your button & tie it so you wind up with 2 cords the same length. String a bead on one cord, string a jump ring on both cords, string a bead on the other cord, string a jump ring on both cords. Keep doing this until you reach the desired length. Do an overhand knot on your cord. You can leave the cord plain here or thread seed beads on it for your button closure. Make another overhand knot. You should have long tails left. String a few beads on the end of each cord and knot.

Components:

Czech Purple Druk Beads. Czech Firepolish Alexandrite. Aventurine. Purple/Green Button with Crystals. Purple Seed Beads. S-lon cord.

    Gorgeous design, Deb, and the way you created your loop is so unusual and pretty. Of course, nothing beats cute like BB – - -

    Thank you RowdyGirl, Maria, Rootware, Crazybeader, & Laud.
    On the blog where I found this she said it could be adapated to necklaces. I’m thinking it would be very pretty with nice stones and pearls that coordinate and more decorative looking jump rings. I know I’ve seen jump rings that are not cut and have some design.

    Thank you Nancy, Frida, Julia, Asia, & Celticivy. This is probably one of the easiest bracelets ever. You could whip up bunches in a a few hours. I’m thinking of doing bunches with shells and larger seed beads.
