"Fans" Bracelet Pattern is Finished


I just finished the pattern "Fans Bracelet" and listed it at My Etsy Shop. I will be working on the pattern for matching earrings very soon. I decided to separate them as the earrings require a slightly different technique.

This striking micro macrame design is simple in conception, but needs a bit of practice to master. Recommended for beginners with some knotting and beading experience. This design primarily uses Double Half-Hitch knots with Lark's Head knots at the beginning and ending. The trickiest parts are beginning, ending, and determining how many seed beads to use per strand. It is all covered in the instructions with plenty of photos.

As with all my basic designs, there is lots of room for creativity. I provide tips on some variations, including how to expand it into a choker.

I have one of your fan bracelets and I love it! Will you be selling the pattern again? I'm so sorry I missed it on ESTY.

I am so glad you like the bracelet. Absolutely, I am selling it again! It is currently available again at my Etsy shop. I am only listing copies one at a time, then relisting, in order to take advantage of the time machine search function. So, if it is not there when you look, try again as I will definitely be relisting it over and over...
