This 4-wrap bracelet begins with a rich, black leather base and gets down to business in no time. Karen uses a neutral palette of C-Lon cords but goes right to the edge with embellishments. It’s a very powerful design that will definitely get someone’s attention. Silver seed beads stud the sides and wide heart sliders float on 5mm leather, bringing it all together in an edgy, but infinitely wearable design. Don’t forget this one when you have a night out on the town.
Miyuki Seed Beads- 8/0
Leather- 5mm Strap
Black Heart’s total length is 32 inches including the 3/4” clasp. This 4-wrap bracelet will fit comfortably a wrist up to 7 inches. The macramé sections vary in length from 4-1/2” to 12”. The Bead Mine sliders, intended for 10mm wide strap leather were used by Karen on the 5mm strap. She used glue to keep them in place. Incorporate smaller sliders into long color blocks of macramé and punctuate with large, bold sliders to create a richly textured design.
Please Note! Some of the sliders used are no longer available, but you can select others by clicking the Metal Sliders link in the ingredients list above!
