Golden Hour

Project Info:

Level: Beginner

Estimated time: 3-4 hours (for a stack)

Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

The lighting is incredible just after sunrise and just before sunset. This is the “golden hour,” known to photographers as the time when the magic really happens. Just like the picture-perfect sunlight, this golden bracelet is ready to be the star of your “stack.”

The holidays are fast approaching and this year’s presents will be a breeze when you can whip up batches of these amazing stacks. Stretch Magic elastic makes the fit a snap, and with custom-made peyote beads each bracelet is unique. These bracelets are great alone, but better stacked together…and they tie in to next week’s project, airing November 15. The ingredients listed will net you one bracelet, so be sure to check out our other colorways and our recipe page to extend your stack.

Be sure to watch Kate and Emily bead away on Facebook LIVE November 8, 2017, or watch the rebroadcast above. They have tricks and tips to make it simple and will show you how to make these great beaded beads.
