Free Jewelry Project from the book Diane Fitzgerald’s Favorite Beading Projects.
You might recall the necklace made with fortuneteller’s beads, a jewelry project from the new book by Diane Fitzgerald, one of the world’s best-selling beadwork designers, that we featured earlier in February . Today we have a new free jewelry design that the publishers are making available from the same book:
|Diane Fitzgerald’s Favorite Beading Projects: Designs from Stringing to Bead weaving|
This beading pattern is for a ….
Diamond Chain Bracelet
Today’s jewelry making project is called the ‘Diamond Chain Bracelet’.
Rather than being made with real diamonds, the beads are woven together in such a way that the clusters resemble the multi-faceted nature of diamonds.
A really lovely piece ~ as we expect from Diane ~, which actually appears to be quite simple to make.
