3 Colour Woven Bracelet

Made this bracelet today after seeing the technique on Jewellery Maker.
I used 6mm beads I had to try out the bracelet. I needed 25 of the blue and green and 12 of the black.
You will obviously use less if using larger beads.
The sample on JM was made with all the same bead where the blue and green are and it gave a hooped effect.

Blue bracelets

I bought glass beads from beaders companion a while ago. I made these 2 bracelets the other day. One is elasticated and one has a beaded flower with clasp fastening.

Lots of colour...

I have recently discovered 'The Jewellery Maker' channel. SKY 655.
I have bought lots of genuine gems so I can make lots of nice pieces.
Here we have a strand of multi colour Agate oblongs. I hope to get a few bracelets from this strand.

Writing a complaint!!.....

I am very disappointed that I have not received my new bowls yet. Bowling direct in Dundee where I ordered them keep saying they'll be here soon.
I decided today after waiting 12 weeks that I would contact Taylor Bowls directly.
I am waiting for their reply with bated breath.
