Note from seller

Thanks so much for stopping by BOUTIQUE of BLUE RIDGE ... I am closing my shop or putting it on vacation mode actually for an indefinite amount of time as I recently took a job with the Pisgah national forest service and western North Carolina. I’m living in the forest and do not have Wi-Fi or cell service! I will still be creating jewelry and will be selling at the Saturday market in downtown Brevard/ Transylvania Farmers Market 8 AM to noon off of Main Street in downtown Brevard North Carolina. If you need to come for me please do so and I will get back to you in several days if not sooner. Again thank you so much for stopping by and I’m sorry for any inconvenience. Have a beautiful summer

**Note on color...the actual bracelet is a softer aqua..not so bright as the photos with sunlight streaming thru
**Note on sizing...I have needed to add a drop down menu on sizing and pricing...so rather than $72 for the kit... (I will get to changing the front sheet soon ~I am so bad at the Adobe InDesign program to do it!!!)
anyhow if your wrist is 7" or less.... $68
if your wrist is 7" -8"... $74
if you are larger than 8" please contact me before purchasing...and I will work with you...I hate to quote a price here as each case needs an independent consideration.

Welcome to my first Tutorial /Kit...there are bound to be some hiccups..so please let me know and i will do everything possible to smooth things out. I will be continue to edit and improve things after I release it...namely photos. I do work from home and am around VERY late at night and am around pretty much every day...You will never bother me with ANY question!!!! etsy.com/yourshops/braceletsofblueridge (leave me a convo)

*****THIS LISTING IS FOR THE 'Creme de Menthe' 4 Wrap Leather BRACELET BEADING KIT ONLY!!!!******
******************************************************************************************************************** (Unfortunately Etsy does not have a selling vehicle to allow for a digital download and a physical sale item to be mailed to you on the same sales interaction :-( SO SORRY)

SO IF YOU WOULD LIKE THE TUTORIAL (16 pages-14 pages of instruction, photos, detailed list of materials, explains the KIT and my way of doing things...a little different than the mainstream.).. you will need to purchase the tutorial separately...here ($10):

https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/482982924/tutorial-diy-creme-de-menthe-4-wrap?ref=shop_home_active_1

I would have printed out the instructions and sent them with the kits when I mailed them off...however I thought we should save a few trees!!!. (it is just shy of 4 MB)

So If you would like the tutorial, Then You may buy the TUTORIAL by itself at this link....(and come up with your own color combinations-examples given on the last page of the tutorial)..sold for $10 you will need to go to this link to purchase and download your tutorial there! You will be able to download it immediately and as many times as you would like:

This Project is appropriate for the INTERMEDIATE or adventurous advanced beginner wrap bracelet beaders out there!!! I would suggest that you have tackled a few ladder stitch bracelets first before taking on this one...although not absolutely necessary. The tension is not a huge issue here, as the beads are TINY and when you sew from both sides of the piece as I discuss, you will have virtually no bead popping...!


In your CREME de MENTHE BEADING KIT you will find that it includes enough beads to make up to an 7.75"
4 wrap bracelet. If you need something larger I can accommodate you.
It comes in a gift box and has includes:
*bead pad *a bottle of Super New Glue *Grade AA-AAA Amazonite & Smoky Quartz
*3 Flexwire Needles *Premium Greek Leather *Japanese/Cz
ech beads~Quality /bugles/
/Seeds, /firePolished, delicas
*a card of Silamide thread *Swarovski Pearls
*pewter filigree heart button *Waxed Irish Linen *5x7" box

The only things you will need:
TIME...this takes me a little over 6 hours..it may take you a week...no rush! the beads are small and i teach a double sewing technique..which takes more time..sewing with 2 needles. (makes everything straight supple and slinky!)
Good lighting and glasses..lots of elbow room.
I clipboard..or bead board..I like the plastic ones with a handle to tie to, made by Dexas (Amazon/Walmart)
flat Pliers
sharp scissors or (optional)flush cutters, thread burner, ...)
paper towels
I have preconditioned your leather.

'CREME DE MENTHE'>>>>Rich Dark Chocolate and light Minty Blue Green Ice Cream...or whatever these colors remind you of will likely be cool and decadent!! This bracelet can be easily be dressed up or down. The Aqua Amazonite appears very bright in the photos as the sun is shining through it (however when you wear it-it will appear more muted-), and the Smoky Quartz is just that , not a solid stone, but semi-transparent. These semiprecious gemstones compliment each other perfectly in this 4 wrap Dark Antique Brown Greek Leather Bracelet. There are also some lovely Mint Chocolate mix of Shell Pearls and Brown iridescent Japanese delica seed and bugle beads, and Czech Fire-Polished and seed Beads.. All of the beads are glass and all are sewn through at least 2 times if not 4 times with Silamide Beading Cord for Super Durability. up to-7.45"
***Width...1 3/8" with all 4 wraps together side by side

Free shipping for the Kit!

FAQs

Please keep your jewelry DRY...anything with fiber (bamboo/hemp or wool) and especially leather will mildew and rot with exposure to moisture and chlorine from pools...bacteria from ponds, etc. If you do get them wet you can rinse them of with clean water and then put the leather bracelet in a baggie or bowl and cover it with white rice and leave it for a day or so...the rice will absorb the moisture. It really doesnt matter what kind of white rice you use..as long as there are no seasonings on it!

If you would like a Custom Order.. You may want to take a look at the sold section of my shop to see over 770 old pieces...all different...for some ideas. Or you can bring me your own ideas. I will not copy another designers work. Anything that I do will represent my aesthetic, ...with that being said I love to work with clients and present you with photos of bead color palettes that we can add to/take away from until you are happy. I generally lay out more beads than I am going to actually use. I get a general idea of what you are looking for, your measurements and then I make the piece...no $ down. Provide you with Photos once done. If you love it , great! it is yours! If not then I will post it in my shop and we can start over. Fun!

All items over $20 leave my shop in a cute blue or pastel satin covered sturdy little gift box with a bow on it. I have my shops name on a sticker on the inside..some of the boxes have a satin liner that doubles as a polishing cloth. These boxes are great for stacking inside drawers for storage, for gift giving, and of course for mailing safely out to you.

Additional policies

I love Custom orders...I really do!....
Custom orders keep me on my toes by expanding what I would typically do if left to my own ideas with no other input However at times they become overwhelming and my list gets quite long...and the wait can get too long for my taste. This is keeping me from producing new and fresh inventory for my shop,

Customs will be evaluated on a first come first served basis.
