7 Wrap Nantucket

Project and Sample by Janice Parsons

Imagine yourself on the small island of Nantucket off the coast of Cape Cod. It’s a cold day and the waves are so high the boats bob up and then out of sight. With great memories of trips to Cape Cod as a child, Janice has created an extra-long Tahoe; it’s 6-7 wraps depending on your wrist size. We hope it has captured the mood and charm of this quaint part of New England. Using an assortment of old silver and dusty blues, Janice made a Tahoe we think you’re going to love. It’s easy to build in just a few hours...just be sure you cut your leather long enough. (See the Project Map below for details) and Download the Handout (PDF) to follow along. Also, shopping is so easy when you use the SHOP and TOOLS tabs above! The Ingredients List will make one complete 7 wrap with leftovers of Heishi, Little Shadows and a bit of leather. Otherwise, you will use most of the beads listed.

Be sure to read through the handout for 5 Wrap Tahoe, but cut your leather longer to make it a 6-7 wrap bracelet. This sample uses

                 3-¼ yards of 1.5mm leather                    2 yards 1.0mm leather

Measure your wrist before you start. This sample is approximately 50-51 inches, including the clasp. It will fit a 7 inch wrist. Each section of beads starts and ends with smaller beads to help facilitate the inner leather strand staying inside frames of outer leather. A pair of Chain Nose Pliers was used to crimp the Transition beads. Keep the beadwork a bit loose so there’s some air on the leather. Otherwise, just place the Willow Leaf Charm wherever you like, unless you want to wear it long as a necklace, then it’s important you position it at the halfway point from the clasp. We hope you enjoy!
