Wrote a blog post about making a beaded dragon for a friend, then I got distracted with links to free dragon tutorials.

Pattern for Stash Worm Bracelet Available Here

This is a pattern only. It does not include materials or a finished product.

Materials Needed:
Seed beads 11/0 - 8-12 grams
Seed beads 6/0 - 8-12 grams
6lb/8lb Fireline
Clasp of Choice

This bracelet is named both because it looks like a woolly worm and because it is a great way to use up those almost empty vials in your bead stash! Mix up all your extras to make a lovely bead soup for the fluffy embellishment! 

This pattern will teach you how to make this beautiful bracelet with step-by-step computer illustrated instructions. No experience is needed to complete this pattern, although general beadweaving knowledge will of course be useful.

The instructions and diagrams are for the skinny version of the bracelet (peach and blue bracelets in the pictures above), but instructions are included for the necessary changes to make the wide version (the bracelet with the gold button).

Bracelets made from this pattern may be sold, provided they are not mass produced and I am given credit as the designer. This pattern cannot be shared, taught, or reproduced in any way without my permission.

In which Sam makes a mistake... →

I accidentally bought 20lb Fireline instead of 8lb. What on earth can a beader do with thread that thick? Well, I wrote a blog post about trying to figure that out.

Green and Purple Cup Blossom Necklace by Sam Wescott

Necklace Available Here

Pendant Pattern Available Here

The pendant featured in this necklace was made from my original design, the Cup Blossom Pendant, which can be found in the Patterns/Tutorials section of my shop.

The stones of this flower pendant are a lovely mottled jasper with tones of lavendar and soft green. I played up these undertones by embellishing the focal with satin green and lilac opal Swarovski bicones beads and khaki seed beads. The bicones are used throughout the chain to make a sparkly, but casual, cohesive necklace. 

This necklace clasps with a bronze-plated lobster claw and is adjustable between 17.5 and 18 inches long.
