Flashback Friday - Beaded Bead

This beaded bead on a spiral rope bracelet was at the bottom of one of my jewellry drawers. It was made a number of years ago.

The beaded bead is from one of the great beadwork resource books, The art and elegance of beadweaving by Carol Wilcox Wells.  It is a dimensional right angle weave bead embellished with drop beads.

The addition of the sprial rope using the same colour beads made this a fun and funky bracelet.


  1. What extraordinary bracelet. Never seen such a bead design. I am going to get a copy of that book.

    But I think it is going to be a bigger challenge to find these beads, especially the teardrop ones.

    And to think you kept it tucked away in the bottom of your drawer. This one should be worn proudly.

    Thanks for sharing this creation!

  2. Thanks for the comment. For the teardrop beads you could use any drop beads. The ones I used were a little bit longer than most that are out there. Good luck and happy beading!
