Bay of Bengal

Project Info:

Level: Beginner

Estimated time: 1 hour per bracelet

By Brittany Ketcham

Imagine fishing ports, river deltas and the longest beach in the world...all surrounding the incomparable Bay of Bengal, the largest bay in the world. Located off the coasts of India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Myanmar (Burma) and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, the Bay of Bengal is a priceless ecosystem of marine life.

Brittany found inspiration for these bracelets in the tropical vegetation, blue waters and sun-drenched architecture of the regions surrounding the bay. The beauty and complexity of this design is in its simplicity. Each bracelet is one stitch, one bead and two colors of Chinese Knotting Cord. By stacking them together, your eye will find a pleasing path to Nirvana. And the good news is the ingredients will make up to 15 bracelets...so you will have plenty for yourself and to give away. Give in an organza bag and your gifting is complete. Be sure to watch the video (open the VIDEO tab above) and happy beading!
