In Norse mythology Freyja is the goddess of love and beauty. Ruling over her own heavenly field (an alternative to Valhalla), Freyja rides in a chariot pulled by two cats, and owns a fabulous necklace called Brísingamen. She seems like our kind of goddess!
Alley’s take on the Goddess Bracelet is fun and flirty! Strung on Size 2 Griffin Silk, her 2-wrap bracelet has beautiful flow and feel. A leather button loop secured with C-Lon macramé is fun and fresh.

8/0 Miyuki Seed Beads
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.
