Setting the Mood Design by Brittany Ketcham
Bracelet Sample by Sam Applegate

From the moment this bracelet starts wrapping around your wrist, the mood and theme continually change to create a real work of art. Originally designed by Brittany Ketcham, Setting the Mood makes full use of Mood Beads, thermal activated beads that change color when your body heat shifts….Sam just knew Halloween was the perfect holiday to convey the magic of these beads. So, away we go with Wicked Mood! Please watch the video from start to finish. And it would be a shame if you only wore this bracelet one holiday a year… it is just divine! Britt has moved to the North Bay to explore her passions for Nature and Art. She is still very active in beading and can be reached either through her Facebook or blog. We hope you enjoy our latest update, and, as always, happy beading!

Please see the Project Map below for a view of the sample. We have added two videos to help with the Herringbone Weave stitch; they were originally created for Nicole Anderson’s Herringbone Weave 5 Stitch, but they will guide you with the herringbone stitch here as well. Just click on VIDEO tab above.
