Bollywood- Monsoon

Project Info:

Level: Beginner

Estimated time: 1 hour per bracelet

By Brittany Ketcham

Blowing in from both the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea, high winds storming across India would foreshadow the rainy season. These wind storms were first called Monsoons when the British occupied India. Now the term is used to describe storms of all kinds.

Brittany found inspiration for these bracelets in the wind, water and sky of the landscape. The beauty of this design is in its simplicity; each bracelet is one stitch and one size bead (with the exception of the larger bead used for the tails). And with a mix of a few colors of Chinese Knotting Cord, your eye will find a pleasing path to Nirvana. Be sure to watch the video (open the VIDEO tab above). 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. Please note: We no longer carry the 24K Gold Plated metal seed beads originally used in this project, and have listed a beautiful champagne-gold glass Miyuki 8/0 in its place.
