Project by: Janice Parsons
Sample by: Grace Noland

Grace loves unexpected combinations and lots and lots of texture. Her bracelet harkens back to the early days of Hollywood westerns with Gloria Swanson and other matinee idols. It features the gold lamé strap leather, silver sliders and C-Lon in dramatic shades that bring richness to the design. Grace didn’t use seed beads, but you could easily add them in silver or gold.

Project Map


The total length of Mirage is 37 inches, including the clasp which is 3/4” in length. This extra long bracelet will wrap up to 5 times on a wrist up to 7 inches. The macramé sections vary from 2-1/2” to 6-1/2”. No seed beads were used with the macramé, but you could easily add them in gold or silver. Try using a mix of one-strand and two-strand sliders to create a cohesive look.
