A new beading tutorial for a textured bracelet that can also become reversible and be made in different widths. I have included notes about the design in the tutorial.
"Pinch and Drop in A Good Way" bracelet is made with Czech 3x5 mm Pinch beads, Miyuki 3.4 mm drop beads and seed beads. For the sample I used mixed colors of Pinch beads, but of course you can use beads in one color only.
The pattern is available in both my Artfire shop* (PDF sent by email) and in my Etsy shop (instant download).
* Until some technical issues will be solved on Artfire, European customers can purchase my beading patterns only from my Etsy shop. Sorry about that...

New beading tutorial is available, "Little Kheops", for a dimensional bracelet - stitched in one continuous path, earrings and a delicate beaded ring.
The project used the two-hole Kheops par Puca triangle beads and Japanese seed beads.
This is the second bracelet I designed using the new Tango 2-hole triangle beads. The design also uses the innovative Kheops par Puca triangle beads, two-hole Tile and Pyramid beads and Japanese seed beads.

Update Feb. 6: I received some Tango beads to design with ahead of the time they launched at the Tucson show. Buy Tango beads on Etsy
I can hardly keep track of all the new beads coming into the market in the past months... One of the most recent bead produced is the Tango bead - a triangle Czech glass bead that has two holes in uneven lengths. The new bead is now presented for the first time in the To Bead True Blue show in Tucson, Arizona USA, exclusively by Bead Master.
The unusual placement of the holes of the bead makes it challenging to design with, but at the same time it opens up more possibilities for unusual designs...
I came up with two bracelet designs with this bead, one of them is the Dragon Tail bracelet - a unisex bracelet design. You can combine the Tango beads with seed beads only for a bracelet for men, or use sparkling Swarovski crystals for the feminine version of the bracelet.
Here is Dragon Tail bracelet free tutorial. Enjoy! *
