You will love every bracelet you make from this tutorial! The color combinations are endless as I have demonstrated in the additional photos. You should have some beading experience or at least a beginner with patience and persistence to succeed!
In this 20 page tutorial with photos I will show you step by step how easy it is to make this Caterpillar Bracelet. The right angle weave is a basic and repetitive beading technique. With a very simple overlay of a criss cross pattern this bracelet makes a bold statement. A bonus is my technique for creating a strong and secure closure for the clasp.
The bracelets pictured with this listing are examples of how the design can be modified with bead sizes and completing one direction of the loop pattern.
In addition to your bead supplies, the only tools necessary are a beading needle, scissors, and ruler. With a little practice this bracelet can be completed in approximately an hour.

******How to Care For Jewelry with Beaded Beads *****
My beaded jewelry can be worn every day. I condition the thread with wax to ensure the utmost strength and durability. Please do not swim or bathe while wearing these beads and remember they are made of glass.
Many of my designs have silver connections. If you wish to clean your silver back to a shine, please do not submerge the piece in jewelry cleaner. Use a cotton swab to clean around the beaded beads. When possible, clean with a silver polishing cloth. It takes a little longer, but the results will be the same.
