Samples by Robin Tobias

One of America’s most beloved trees, the Sugar Maple has leaves the colors of red and gold in Autumn. When Robin* selected the cord and bead colors for this collection, we think she had Vermont in October in mind. And it’s really amazing that with just 4 tubes of seed beads and 5 colors of Chinese Knotting Cord, you can make 15 bracelets! Just add a few organza bags to your order and you can keep some and give some away as gifts. How perfect!

See the Project Map below for a Bird’s Eye View of what beads Robin paired with what cord. Bollywood is a video project. Be sure to click on the VIDEO tab above to watch. We don’t have a companion handout for Bollywood, however we think you’ll find these techniques helpful to review:

Robin’s samples use two sizes of seed beads (8/0 and 6/0) in just two colors, but notice how when you mix the five cord colors you get a variety that looks like so much more. When finishing the tails of each bracelet, Robin found it easier to use the 6/0 seed beads on all the tails rather than trying to fit 8/0’s on the ends, as we did in the original samples.
