About this design:

This pretty bracelet was created by using Matagama beads in a blue iris color with AB crystals spiraling around in the center. Love the way this bracelet has such a free form and the colors are beautiful especially when catching the light! Would be a beautiful holiday bracelet!


Matagama Seed beads,small rondelle and bi-cone crystals,fireline beading thread- 6lb,some small bead spacers and a pretty clasp.

    This piece is among those in the Step-By-Step Instructions category, yet, there is no instruction following the “Step 1″ What’s up with that? I really was looking forward to learn to create a similar piece.

    Yes, were are the instructions. I have made the Kumihimo weave before using the magatama beads but thought this one was more envolved. AAHHHH, I want the instructions!!!

    Love the bracelet, but where’s the instructions. Please, if you don’t want to post the instructions, just let us know what stitch you used and maybe one of us could figure it out. Thanks for sharing.

    By the way, I like yours better than the spiral stitched one J Butterfield linked above because you used the beads in several directions, giving it a more organic feel.

    I loved this, but as the rest of you said, where are the instructions? Please let us know so we can make them! I don’t believe I have seen an answer to this yet, Excuse me if you answered and I missed it. Again, very pretty, but its in the step by step category so please tell us where to find them. Thank you for sharing the photo, can’t wait to make it!

    Sorry everyone. This design isn’t one of LimaBeads’, it was posted by a customer. I’ve removed it from the “step by step instructions” area.
