Swiss Chard

Project Info:

Level: All

Estimated time: 3+ Hours

Design and Sample by Alley Mori

What a work of art…great job, Alley! After Kate shared a series of inspirational photos from a trip to the Farmer’s Market in our FB Group, Alley came up with this beautiful three-wrap bracelet based on a photo of stacks of Swiss chard…right down to the blue rubber bands holding the colorful stalks together!

We made a few replacements to Alley’s original 8/0 colors and have tried to get as close matches as possible for the beads we don’t carry. We also used one of our beautiful Czech Glass Dragonfly Buttons in place of the one Alley used from her personal bead stash. We think this design is a hit!

Ingredients list is to the left and easy shopping can be done with the Shop Tab above! To see a breakdown of each individual wrap and Kate’s original photo, please see the Project Map below.

Project Map

Alley used Traditional Laddering with Fine C-Lon to ladder her patterns of seed beads. For the Macramé, she used Regular C-Lon and every two complete knots she added beads at the same time on each side, so the beads would sit across from each other.
