Padre White


Project Info:

Level: Intermediate

Estimated time: 3-4 Hours

By Brittany Ketcham

Beginning with a simple loop of white Padre beads and incorporating trade beads from many areas of Africa, this ethnic design is a symbol of the expansive trade route followed by many cultures and tribes traveling across continents centuries ago. From Thailand's Hill tribe silver, to African heishi and an old European button, this bracelet woven on linen is a shining example of how cultures worked and traded together for hundreds of years. The little peace symbol represents our dream and hope that mutual respect and open trade can bring cultures together again in harmony.
