Project by Brittany Ketcham
Sample by Robin Tobias

On a cold winter’s night snowdrifts are barely visible against a gray-black sky. Outside everything is quiet, but, looking up, one can see the clouds drifting through. Does this mean more snow in the morning? Robin created a 6-wrap bracelet inspired by icy December weather. Using just three types of beads, a button, leather and some cord, she has created a design we hope you’ll enjoy making and wearing for years to come.

Project Map

Midnight Snow is a 6-wrap design that measures 41 inches in length from the button shank to the end of the button loop. Cut your leather 90 inches in length. If you need additional length for a wrist larger than 7 inches, you will need to begin with more leather. The Ingredients for the project are not enough to make two bracelets, but will leave you with enough leftover beads to ladder longer, if needed.

A challenge of making a multiple-wrap design is allowing enough room for the beads to move a bit as they circle your wrist. We ladder beads to leather when the project is secured to a board and straight, but when we wrap it multiple times in a circle around the wrist the beads need more room to breathe or they will start to pop out of place...which we hate! As you are laddering make sure not to overtighten and crowd the beads too close together when they are side-by-side. Taking the time to check the tension before you end the piece will make all the difference in the world.


We hope you enjoy and happy beading!
