    Too many tiny parts! However, they make a great bracelet. Love it!

    Thanks everyone-this is made with size 6 seed beads-not too small :) I must say the little buggers end up everywhere though

    The oversized toggle heart charm is just right, and beautiful for this lush wring of beads you’ve woven. Lovely

    Wow, how long did this one take to complete? I would have to buy twice the number of beads needed. Half of them to lose on the floor, the other half to but in the bracelet. This is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, well worth however long it took.

    How did you do this one if I may sound stupid to ask? I am not to familiar with seed bead works. I like this bracelet a lot. I too like Linda, Kitty Mom would be feeding my vacuum and pets beads and I am not sure either would survive too many.

    Linda, these just take a few hours once you get going. And since I’ve been into seed beads lately they take a lot of time to clean up too-I think I’ll hire my daughter to do that for me :) Faith haven’t you heard there’s no such thing as a stupid question? :) You basically string a row of seed beads and then work off of that adding others. This is a basic fringe pattern as far as I know. I’m fairly new to it too, but it’s quite addicting!

    Wow I still really like this. I bought a needle and 2 sizes of seed beads today. Both in black. My husband wants me to make him a necklace to hold his red tigers eye pendant he (bought at the flea market, go figure) wear on it. I bought teeny tiny and what I think are larger but not large. But I know nothing about them. Look to be the size of the ones in your picture. There were several strands together on one fastner at Jo Anne Fabric on sale so I don’t figure I threw too much money away yet. I just didn’t know what string to buy to sew them with. Sales clerk little to no help. Diane Cauley, why were you not working in the Orange Park, Florida store for me. I am sure you would have been a lot of help. I missed you.
