Grow Your Garden of Wrap Bracelets

Garden Fairy Project by Brittany Ketcham-Roney ~ Sample by Jen Tello
In the Garden is one of the most popular designs from beadshop's assortment of free projects. In the projects area of the web site, the In the Garden section boasts 18 different variations on this jewelry piece, three of which are fairly recent additions. So, if this wrap-style bracelet is an old favorite of yours, make sure you haven't missed three new ones: Garden Fairy (shown above), Tiger Lily, and Honey Dew (both pictured below).

Along with new projects to add to the In the Garden design, a new handout also provides updated information and extra tips to go along with the already existing video. (For those new to In the Garden, it is strongly suggested you watch the video as you review the handout, as they work together). Each version of In the Garden posted in the projects area of the web site includes a link to this free pdf handout, which you can download and save to your digital device or print. 

Here are just a few of the extra tips covered in this updated version of the In the Garden handout:
  • To seal off ends of threads, GS Hypo Cement and Eurotool Ultra Flush Cutters are recommended.
  • While the video shows how to secure your project to a design tray, there is also a Skill Builder Handout that covers this important consideration as well.  
  • Longer wrap bracelets is a current trend, which wasn't the case when the video was published in 2013; therefore, the handout suggests using a longer piece of leather when starting out. 
Make sure you don't miss out on adding more beautiful wrap bracelets to your collection by taking a look at this popular design that has been given a few fresh new looks.
