LEARN HOW TO CREATE wearable works of art! Beaded Bracelets will show you how to make 25 original woven beaded bracelets that are contemporary and sure to make a statement.

Every bracelet design is unique and has been created by author Claudine McCormack Jalajas to help you master the four main basic beadweaving stitches: peyote, crossweave, right angle weave, and herringboe. Each design comes with a complete and detailed material list, and clear step-by-step instructions and illustrations.

And all the projects will show you how beads are gently woven together to create bracelets that are lacy, chunky, sleek, fringed, delicate, and most of all beautiful. Also included are tips for purchasing the right tools and beads and resources that will guide your buying decisions.

Claudine's enthusiasm for bead stitching is obvious by her constant development of jewelry (she confesses bracelets are her favorite). Never tiring of creating and designing she tries to spread her knowledge with others and teaches classes in many libraries throughout Suffolk County on Long Island. Her classes are popular and often have long waiting lists. She sells her jewelry, patterns, and bead kits on her ETSY site and at various artisan shows throughout the year. She also sells patterns on her Craftsy pattern store.
