Sugar Baby


By Nicole Anderson
Sample By Karen Marshall

In this creative and informative video, Nicole demonstrates how to master the Herringbone Weave Stitch using Chinese Knotting Cord around leather. In Sugar Baby, a bracelet made by Karen Marshall, the predominant color theme is rose, coral and nutmeg brown... A very spicy and upbeat take on a classic. This bracelet combines an elegant stitch with the technique of laddering using pearls, pyrite and seed beads. After watching the video, please refer to the project map below. It may be helpful in seeing the whole design, rather than one wrap at a time. When you are feeling adventurous, we hope there will be nothing stopping you from creating your own unique versions. We want to thank Karen Marshall for building the sample pictured. It is based on the video and design of Nicole Anderson.
