Chloris, Greek Goddess of flowers, created many flowers herself…or so the legends go. Roses, hyacinth, adonis, narcissus, crocus…each has a story (or two, or three) of how they came to be. Chloris, also known by her Roman name, Flora, created many of these blooms from tragedies…giving us color and beauty in times off heartache and sadness. Perhaps that’s why flowers make us all so happy?
Alley’s take on the Goddess Bracelet is fun and flirty! Strung on Size 4 Griffin Silk, her 2-wrap bracelet has beautiful flow and feel. A leather button loop secured with C-Lon macramé is fun and fresh.

Project Map

 

From Alley herself:
These are made in a similar way to Kate’s when stringing on the pearls and seed beads.  You should be able to follow the project map for the proper order of the beads.

To start, I stretched the silk and folded it in half.  Thread on a flexible eye needle on the opposite end of the pre-installed needle.  Attach to the button with a Larks Head knot.  I did wrap the ends around a few times to strengthen the attachment.  Then, just start stringing on the beads.

To end, tie the silk into a secure knot and add a drop of glue. Macramé over the silk threads creating a loop long enough to go through the ring and then, macramé back (going towards the button) over to secure.

There are a few projects (on the Projects page) that use the leather loop (Trail’s End is one of them) for directions.
