Item details

Knotted Spirals bracelet pattern 8.

Beading level: suitable for beginners.

The tutorial contains instructions for the knotted bracelet shown in the first picture, and has five variations of a spiral rope and how to turn these into a necklace, bracelet and earrings. It's a very detailed tutorial, is easy to follow and is suitable for beginners.

The spiral rope stitch can be very useful to use if you have seed beads that are not consistent lengths, as you will pick up more than one bead at once to form the outer loops so they just need to form the same length in total. It's a really versatile design and I use it a lot.

Zoom in on the first picture for more colour variations. You will make two separate ropes for this knotted bracelet so it's easy to mix and match the patterns and colours, or just make both the same. Each rope is stitched together at the ends so you don't need any sort of unusual clasp or connector. You can make a bracelet using just a single rope, or make it longer for a necklace. This rope is really good for holding any large sort of pendant, including bought ones.

You will need sizes 8 and 11 seed beads for each rope, plus for some variations you will also use 4mm round beads or bicones, size 6 seeds, 3mm or 6mm bugle beads, or stone chips. (Not all at once!) Plus you will need a necklace or bracelet clasp, earring hooks, jump rings with two pairs of pliers to attach them with, and a beading needle and thread.

31 pages. 30 clear computer-drawn diagrams. 21 photos including 14 of finished work.

Additional policies

Why do patterns seem so expensive?

I used to think the same thing, actually. They seem so expensive. Why is it so much? Why would someone pay £5 or £8 or even more for a pattern, however unique the design, when they could buy an entire book for under £20?

Part of the price may be VAT. As it's an instant download, if you're in the EU or certain other locations you'll automatically be charged an extra 20% (or similar depending on the VAT rate of your country) on top of my pattern price. I genuinely am sorry about that. I don't get that money, in case you were wondering.

You're not just paying for the pattern, though. You're paying for direct contact with the designer who will help you with any steps you have trouble with. After you've bought a pattern from me you'll get my personal email address and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have about the pattern via email to that address or via Etsy message.

The pattern is explained in far greater detail than the patterns you'll find in most books. I draw masses of diagrams for each pattern to show you exactly what to do, so you can't go wrong. And if I ever find I've made a mistake in one of them, I'll correct it and send you a new copy.

I let you sell items you have made using my patterns. To me it's like a university saying oh we'll give you the knowledge to pass your degree but you're not allowed to use it to make a living. When you buy a pattern from me I'm happy for you to make money from items made using my design. Of course, it should go without saying that you must not give away or sell any part of my (or anyone else's) patterns, and also that you should not sell items made from other designers' patterns unless they have explicitly stated that you have permission.

And finally, you're most likely only going to end up making one or two designs from that £20 book anyway. Which means that each one has actually cost you £10. Mine aren't so dear after all! :-)
