Daydream

Project Info:

Level: Beginner

Estimated time: 1 Hour per bracelet

Project by Brittany Ketcham
Samples by Robin Tobias

A daydream is characterized by being a “vision or fantasy.” It can feel like a preoccupation with anything but reality. When reading about the meaning of the colors turquoise and gray, they seem to belong together. Turquoise is known to boost creativity, improve one’s dream state, and heighten creativity. Gray, in contrast, is meant to quiet and calm. We think that the combination of the two finds just the right balance between staring off into space and turning on the creative light bulb. What a combo!

With just 4 tubes of seed beads and 5 colors of Chinese Knotting Cord, you can make 15 bracelets! Add a few organza bags and think about the smiles on your friends’ faces when you gift them some Bliss! How perfect.

See the Project Map below for a Bird’s Eye View of what beads are paired with what cord. Bollywood is a video project. Be sure to click on the VIDEO tab above to watch. We do not have a companion handout for Bollywood, however these techniques are helpful to review, if you’re new to Bollywood:
Please note: We no longer sell Thread Zaps, which Brittany demonstrates in the video. You can secure your knots with GS Hypo-tube Cement and cut the excess cord with Thread Snips or Cutters.

    Project Map

    Begin by cutting your base CKC 2 yards. Cut your macramé CKC 2 yards. When you're ready, cut 1/2 yard of CKC to make your fish tail adjustable knot. This design uses two sizes of Miyuki seed beads (6/0 and 8/0). In the video, Brittany uses 8/0 metal beads for the entire project, including the tails. We used 6/0 Miyuki beads for the tails  because the hole size fits better.
