    Thank you all so much!

    @D Snyder: No, it’s not lined.

    It’s the culmination of 3 weeks of worth…mostly evenings with 3 2 1/2 hour class periods. It was fun and not as hard as I thought. I may actually wear it to work tomorrow.
    This is what the medallions looked like before I began to attach them.

    I had forgotten that this was in Bead and Button magazine. Laura at Nomadic Notions is the designer of the bracelet and has been teaching it for several years at Nomadic Notions. She still can’t get over how they reduced her original 16 page handout to what’s in the magazine. Laura is one of my favorite teachers, and I’ve taken quite a few of her classes.

    This is really nice, that must have been a job working with all those seed beads…

    Wow, I saw this early today but didn’t get a chance to comment till now. I LOVE THIS BRACELET! I saw the B&B email this a.m. too and would love to have taken that class from the designer. I don’t even work with seed beads and am intrigued.

    So she’s in Austin? We have family that likes to travel there, so may have to check out that store the next time we travel to TX! Enjoy the bracelet … you’ll be the talk of the party!! SLS
