Royal Bridge Bracelet By Penny Dixon

Congratulations to Penny Dixon for a very lovely design in the August September 2015 issue of Beadwork magazine.  We are very proud to call Penny one of our fabulous instructors and who is also a Beadwork 2015 designer of the year.  A very talented lady and now also very busy.

This is my version of Penny's Royal Bridge Bracelet

I used the same gold metallic CzechMate quadratiles
Penny used, but mixed in some other metallic's
 with the CzechMate 2-hole bars.

And because I love the halo firepolish colors,
had to use some of them.

The Beadwork pattern also included a great
beaded button closure

Because not all stores carry both the CzechMate Quadratiles
 and CzechMate 2-hole bars, we have kits
available that include all the beads.
Instructions not included so you will need the
August/September 2015 issue of Beadwork magazine

I can see this showing up on other designs as well.

I don't often get to bead very much but just had to do Penny's design. Thanks Penny, for a wonderful and fun project.

And now to the things I normally do, here is  another colorway sample for Sue's Gemcut Leather Wrap Bracelet - class this Saturday, July 18th, 1:00 to 4:00.  We have 5 or 6 different color kits available if you need beads. Additional kits will be available to purchase after the class as well.

Also Saturday, by special request, Beth is teaching her Love Knot Bracelet from 1:00 to 4:00.  A couple of seats still available

On July 25th, two new classes - Riveted Metal Earrings and our Sundance Brick Stitch earrings.  Photos coming soon.  These two classes are almost full - so if you are interested, give us a call to reserve your spot.
