When Silver Hematite came in we all jumped at the chance to create Strong Point in this cool, delicious metallic, but Grace lucked out and got to the four ingredients first. Like Original Strong Point, Grace made a 5 wrap in the same pattern of beads: 1-2-1-2. Luckily, there are just enough beads on 2 strands to make a 5 wrap ladder bracelet for her wrist (6-¾”). For a wrist 7-7-½ inches, ladder a pattern of 1-1-2-1-1 to extend the beads enough to get your desired length with two strands of beads.
Begin by stringing your button onto your cut leather. Secure the button in place by following Steps 2 & 3 of Pattern Stack. We have linked to the Handout in the Skillbuilders below.
Grace used Tuff Cord #3 for laddering and strung a pattern of a row of 1 bead followed by a row of 2 beads, followed by another row of 1 bead and so on. When using Tuff Cord #3, it’s optional to use Flexible Eye Needles on the ends of the cord so you can ladder more easily.
