Day 21, Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge

For Day 21 of the 30 Day Bead Challenge, the task was to expand bead weaving skills and learn a new stitch or technique.

Well if you read my post for day 16 you’re already aware I’m not a bead weaver, despite the day 2 post. That bracelet was made about 4 years ago when I was first exploring the world of hand crafted jewellery. I was pleased with how it turned out and now I remember why I stopped doing bead weaving. It’s way harder than I remember!

So, for day 21 I decided to try more of the new types of beads and went with Tila beads and Superduos for this bracelet.

Tiled Bracelet

I did use some of my stash of tiny size 11 seed beads in gold, but no weaving involved. The bracelet concept was based on a pattern featured on the Domestic Diva website but I ran my cord along the length instead of weaving in and out, and ended up with a very different looking bracelet.
