"Pinkie Lee"

About this design:

This is a wrap bracelet done with leather cord and Rhodonite beads and pink ones. I used the ladder stitch technique that is shown by Ali, however, I did not use a needle, I used KO thread and threaded them that way. I love the Fleur de Lis Button.


So You would need brown Leather cord 1.5mm, Rhodonite beads and pink beads, thread to ladder stitch and a button to finish. This is a take off on Chan Luu's Wrap bracelets which cost a pretty penny but they do take time but I think they are worth it. You can find the tutorial for the stitch on the Lima Bead site. Thanks Lisa LaBarre-Kurz

    This one is a beauty, Lisa! I have followed Ali’s tutorial and made a couple to give as gifts. They do look great, but I’m always tangled in thread while working! Especially the double wrap! LOL
    PS- I have the same button- I love it, too!

    I’m with Deb. Gotta learn the ladder stitch. Endless possibilities. I’m not a pink fan but it really makes a great looking bracelet. :)

    Speaking of Pink Lee, do you remember who he was? You may not be old enough….. ;)
