Sample by: Grace Noland
Made of beautiful dunes, mountains and volcanic formations, the Mojave Desert of the American West is the third largest National Park at 1.3 million acres. When Grace created this sample, the flowers and sunsets of the Mojave were her inspiration. Created in the rich, hot purples and reds of native flowers, this sample deserves a gold heart; we hope you fall in love too! This is an afternoon project meant for all skill levels.

2mm czech glass
At a total length of 18 3/4 inches, Mojave is a 4-wrap that will fit most wrists comfortably. Feel feel to adapt the design to fit the wrist size you want, always allowing for extra room as the leather needs additional length as it overlaps around your wrist. Grace staggered the True 2’s (2mm Czech Glass) in the macramé pattern by adding the left bead into the second completed stitch. To string the True 2’s onto C-Lon, the cord was angle-cut at the tip to make stringing easier. Grace also mixed the clasp and slider metals to give Mojave a more casual, festive feel. Please read through our PDF for Step-by-Step instructions and enjoy!
