Grapevine Bracelet

seed bead grapes
printer friendly image

Description

Every time I think of grapes I think of Lucy stomping in the big bucket with a silly grin on her face. The next image I have is of the grape arbor at my parents house. I love the shape!

This ultra-feminine bracelet combines brick-stitched grapes and leaves with a square-stitched base. The bracelet base is stitched first using the square stitch. These sections in between the seed bead vines are for the grapes to rest on.

Three sizes of grapes are used to create the clusters, with two sizes of leaves. This project takes a while to complete, so I suggest to make a few grapes and leaves at a time, and assemble the bracelet when all of the components are completed.

The stitches that you will need to know are brick stitch and square stitch.

Class Specifics:

  • 1 day /6 hr.

  • Prerequisite: Brick stitch
