Morning Snow

Handout


Project Info:

Level: All

Estimated time: 6 Hours

Project by Brittany Ketcham
Sample by Robin Tobias

It’s a cold, bright white morning and new snow is everywhere. Outside the world is still asleep and your footprints will be the first of the day. Are you ready to set out on a new adventure? Robin created a 7-wrap bracelet inspired by beautiful winter weather. Using just three kinds 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.

Unfortunately, the beautiful white agate rounds we loved so much for this project have proven difficult to source, so we have replaced them with these gorgeous glass beads, Milky White.

Project Map

Morning Snow is a 7-wrap design that measures 49 inches in length from the button shank to the end of the button loop. Cut your leather 110 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!
