Year of Jewelry Week 14 - It's Egg-citing Beadweaving Bracelet

OK, OK.  If you've been following my Year of Jewelry exploits, you might realize that I skipped a week.  Week 13 was to make a personal talisman and I just haven't found the perfect piece yet.  Meanwhile, the weeks were starting to pass me by, so I skipped ahead to Week 14 - It's Egg-citing.  And yes, I should have had this piece done last week and I should be working on the piece for this week, but that theme is The Fibonacci Sequence which has me totally baffled, so I floundered a bit.  

All that aside, let me tell you about this bracelet.  The theme was eggs, as in decorated Easter eggs.  I went with circular patterns and used spring colors that would be right at home on an Easter egg.

Apricot, blue, teal and pink seed beads

Let me tell you, this was slow going.  And by that, I mean it took FOREVER.  Eons, at least.

It's a fun piece, though, and I like the outcome.

Now I just have to figure out how to use the Fibonacci Sequence in jewelry.  Uh huh.


  1. Worth all the effort tho you nailed it!

  2. Ah, but I could help! If you do a Fibonacci search on google images you'll get the answer :) Basically the nautilus is the perfect natural representation of the Fibonacci sequence (where each number is the sum of the previous 2, starting with 0, 1). So you need to make something in the nautilus spiral :)
    Or, if you feel truly brave (I don't with seed beads) - try the sunflower seed pattern, it is the same sequence.
    Best of luck - looking forward to seeing what you'll make :)


I'd love to hear from you!
