Arrow Bracelet Pattern

Finally, it is done. I have finished the pattern for "Arrow Bracelet".


Fun to make and so beautiful!

Although based on my "Diamonds Bracelet Pattern", this "Arrow Bracelet Pattern" is a bit more intricate. So, this pattern is recommended for intermediate knotters/beaders. (Some knotting and beading experience would be helpful.)

I provide instructions for the basic 7" bracelet, including a variation of motif and tips on making smaller and longer bracelets. You could even make a choker!


Variations

The Basic Bracelet has focal beads in the center of the "diamond" segments:


as in this bracelet:

And, this one:



Variation 2 has no focal bead in the "diamond" segments, but a lattice-like motif instead:

as in this bracelet:



Find the pattern for sale at My Etsy Shop. I have also listed a few kits for those who just want to try one out without buying all the materials in bulk. (Find it in "Patterns" section if not on front page)

I am trying something new with this pattern. I am using the html format to save the document and so it will open in your browser instead of in pdf format to open in Adobe Reader. I can sent it zipped or unzipped. For those with email accounts that have limits on attachments, I can provide access to the url where the document lives a private life. (I just add their email address to the "approved viewers" list. ) It can be printed or saved from there.

EDIT: Oh well, it was a good idea, but I think I should stick to Pdf format as the html requires a bit more computer savvy than some people may have. So to keep it simple for my customers, I will remain with the pdf version unless requested otherwise. Easy enough as I have both versions saved. For those with email accounts that have limits on attachments, I can still provide access to the url where the document lives a private life.


On to the next pattern: "Criss Cross Bracelet and Earrings". I have it set up, but am unsure when I can get it finished, so no promises today.
