Tribal Ladder- Playa


Project Info:

Please Note: The beads in this project are handmade, old or no longer available. The ingredients can be modified to work with other beads.

Level: Beginner

Estimated time: 2-3 Hours

Design By Brittany Ketcham

Upon collecting the materials for our upcoming “Summer Series,” Jewelry Collection, Brittany was inspired by the Playa sand cast beads to create a tribal-style ladder bracelet that would suit everyone. It is such a classic that she imagined making them for everyone in the family, including Clover, her little pup. Brittany used “Stackable Ladder Bracelet” as the basis for the project and added the extra texture of sand cast beads to create a really artisan look. The leather used for the silk wrap, instead of thread, also adds that added textured feel. Please adjust the materials to accommodate for the final length for the wrist size. Unfortunately, the playa beads are no longer available. We are so sad! But please see the other samples in this collection.
We have included step-by-step instructions in a PDF that you can download, but we recommend that you review our Youtube video, Stackable Ladder as the techniques are the same. We hope you enjoy!
