Project and Sample by Emily Miller

A shekere is a beaded musical instrument from West Africa made from a dried goard with a netting of beads over it. This Textured Fringe bracelet can make a similar, (but quieter!) sound on your wrist. The mix of earthtones in this design harken back to this beautiful instrument.

Fringe is usually the last part of a beaded project, it’s the icing on the cake! But, in this spiky, textured design it's all about the fringe: short, long, and medium…each has a role to play.

Ingredients list is to the left and easy shopping can be done with the Shop Tab above!

Please join us as our worldwide community gathers on Facebook at 10:30am Pacific Time on May 16th, 2018. It’s so much fun to go live with us and bead together! After the live broadcast the video will be available above.
