The giftwrap beaded bead bracelet pattern provides 11 pages of instructions with diagrams and photos, showing you how to make this memory wire bracelet. You will string three miniature gifts (beaded beads) onto the bracelet with a section of spiralling ribbon. You can choose a combination of 4mm beads to complete the design.
This pattern is suitable for anyone with experience of Peyote stitch. So, please keep reading for more information about materials and experience. For anyone who has purchased my book, A beaded Christmas Table, the parcels may look a little familiar as they are a development of the parcel place name settings. I had such fun making them that I wanted to do some different things with the design.
Materials for the Giftwrap Beaded Bead Bracelet
You will need size 11 Delicas to make the giftwrap beaded bead components. You can buy them from me here. If you wish, you can make the beaded beads on their own and use them as pendants or charms. If you want to complete the entire bracelet, you will need to make the spiralling ribbon section. This combines the delicas with 1.8mm cubes and size 15 seed beads.
I strung everything on a memory wire bracelet. I used 4mm cubes to string onto mine, but you could substitute 4mm pearls or firepolish beads. Check the beading supplies for all these materials as well.
The giftwrap beaded bead bracelet pattern gives detailed instructions, but does assume you have some understanding of Peyote stitch. That means, if you need to learn the technique, or if you need a refresher, then download my free tutorials. You will want the even count Peyote and the tubular and circular Peyote tutorials.
So, I have suggested this project is intermediate level. In fact, if you are a keen beginner, the instructions should be detailed enough to give this a go. Alternatively, if you are more advanced, this is a quick, fun project to make.
Lastly, I am very happy for you to sell finished bracelets using this pattern, but please credit me as the designer. The giftwrap beaded bead bracelet pattern itself is for personal use only. So, this means no copying to give to friends! If you want to teach the project, you will need written agreement from me. But I’ll be very happy to sort that out.
If you have any other questions, please get in touch. I’m always happy to help, or just talk beads! So, happy beading and thank you for looking.
