Now that the holiday gift-making extravaganza is over, it's time to make a shiny object for myself.
I'm following a pattern from the June 2011 issue of Bead & Button magazine by Donna Pagano Denny. The bracelet is based on a band of right-angle-weave, which is then embellished in layers to create a three-dimensional form.
I've chosen metallic bronze seed beads and Siam Swarovski crystals. So far this pattern works up quickly.
