This beaded bracelet tutorial will teach you how to make curvy Art Deco Style bracelets with DiamonDuo or GemDuo beads, 2-hole Crescent beads, Pellet beads, 2mm FirePolish beads, and seed beads. There is also a BONUS gift: a beadweaving tutorial which will show you how to create beaded beads/buttons with DiamonDuos (or GemDuos) -- I have used one of these buttons as the closure for my bracelet, as seen in pics 7 and 8. These versatile components can be used to create earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and more!
The 14-page, full color beadwork pattern has lots of diagrams and photographs to guide you through your stitching, as well as step-by-step written beading instructions. Two colorway options are also shown. The 2 hole bead tutorial will also detail how to attach one of the DiamonDuo/GemDuo buttons as a clasp. NOTE: I consider this intermediate beading pattern to be for more advanced beadweavers.
The bonus button DiamonDuo pattern is 5 full color pages and shows a number of different colorways. Components made from this bonus tutorial may be used for personal or commercial use. (Bracelets created from the crescebt bracelet tutorial are for personal use ONLY – see guidelines in pic #6.

Returns & exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase. Photos are taken in my portable photo studio. It is often difficult to capture the true color of the beads, especially lampworked beads and dichroic glass, but I have done my best, and have added as much description as possible. If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please return it, in the original package, within 7 days, for a full refund MINUS my shipping AND Etsy & PayPal fees. I recommend insuring the return, as no refund can be issued for lost or damaged items. I CANNOT accept for return any items that have been worn or used in any way.
If an item breaks within the first three months of use, due to a defect in either the materials or craftmanship, please return it to me and I will attempt to repair it. You will be responsible for any shipping fees and additional repair charges, and please be aware that I may not be able to replace lost beads! Please insure your return package!
I am not responsible if any items break due to carelessness or other factors that do not pertain to the item's materials or workmanship. It is strongly recommended that beadwoven jewelry NOT be worn during bathing, showering, and sports! It also doesn't do well in the washer and dryer (yes, someone tried this - don't ask.)
**No refund on digital items**
If you see an item you are interested in, such as a bracelet, but would like a different clasp, or have other requests, such as a change from earwires to clips, please convo me.
I enjoy putting different colors and materials together, and receive many compliments on my colorways. While this is very flattering, please understand that I choose to keep my color secrets to myself!
