Project and Sample by Janice Parsons

The foundation for this project, Mosaic 4 Wrap by Brittany Ketcham, was the two hole Japanese beads known as Tilas. Thanks to Lauren Hartman (check out her stunning Beader Showcase entry!) we started carrying the CzechMates glass beads known as Tiles, we thought this was the perfect project to showcase them in. On a recent visit to Virginia to see her family, Janice was inspired by the golden tones of Harvest Corn in Autumn. She wanted to capture the random, endless display of colors changing with each kernel.

This 4 wrap design uses 5 different strands of Tiles and a partial strand of Golden Hematite. There will be materials leftover to use in another ladder bracelet. Please see the Project Map below for design specifics and download the Project Tutorial PDF for Step-by-Step instructions.

Project Map

 

This 4-wrap design is 29 inches in length measured from the button shank to the end of the button loop. Adjust length or add a second button loop to make it adjustable. There is a challenge with these beads: make sure to allow space for each bead to rest comfortably between the leather. If you ladder too tightly, when you go to wrap the bracelet around your wrist, the beads will be forced to pop out to make room for the added length required to wrap around a wrist. And do your best to remember the beads have two holes--don’t skip the second hole! Outside of that, this is a fun project. Where the Mosaic Wrap PDF Tutorial calls for a pattern of Tilas and 8/0 seed beads, Harvest Corn uses two rows of Bronzed Hematite. You could also do this project with 8/0’s and Tiles and it would look fantastic. We hope you enjoy!

Please Download the PDF Tutorial. For an alternate pattern for the Bronzed Hematite, please see how we did a 1-2-1-2 pattern in Strong Point.
