How to Wear a Party on Your Wrist: Make a Spiny Knotted Bracelet

It was a long time coming, but I finally learned how to make Stephanie Sersich‘s Spiny Knotted Bracelet. I’ve been admiring photos of her work and aching to learn how to make one of these ‘wearable parties’ forever. Her book, Designing Jewelry with Glass Beads, provides easy to follow instructions, complete with how-to illustrations. My time had finally come!

All of the beads came from the stash that has been growing over the past twenty years. Other than the book, my only purchases were the beading board (manufactured by her father), and the linen and perle cotton necessary for the macrame. … I totally love my new bracelet.

      Tammi, so glad you got to see the ‘party on a wrist’ close-up and personal last night! Thanks for the compliments!

    Lisa, I love this! Your color choices are amazing, and it’s so unique! You’ll have to show me how to make one at a future Knitting Girls night.
