Green Grotto

Handout


Project Info:

Level: Intermediate

Estimated time: 4-6 Hours


Based on design by Brittany Ketcham
Sample by Colette Bakke

Ready to wade into the warm, secluded waters pictured in this photograph, Colette created a 4 Wrap Mosaic Bracelet using an assortment of beads that reflect the colors in the picture. From the soft blues and grays of the rocks to the bright reflections in the green water, Colette has captured the essence of an island paradise. Inspiration photo was taken by Nikos Papavasileiou.

This technique of using a photograph or artwork to map out your color selection is not new to us here. Since the old days at The Bead Shop, Janice has been sharing her love of color and how it can actually inform your bead choices and designs. Take a few minutes and download our handout, Tricks of the Trade. And don’t forget, we have a wonderful video and a companion handout for this technique. Enjoy!

Project Map

Please Note: Although many of our older videos and handouts demonstrate the use of a Thread Burner, we no longer feel it is imperative to use when beading. As long as you apply glue to the ending knot and the portion of the leather beneath the knot, you’ll be fine. Allow 3 hours for the glue to dry before carefully cutting excess cord away with flush cutters. And with the C-Lon Silk Wrap protecting the Tuff Cord, your design is secure.
