4. Royal Gardens l31

Inspired by Amethyst colored rhinestones, here is a beading tutorial in lavender, cream and brown. Using Flat Herringbone Stitch, weave your way up, enclosing the rhinestones in square patterns. It may look like the rhinestones are sewn or weaved on top of the bracelet as an embellishment, but they are actually weaved within the bracelet.

The square pattern is also seen in courtyards, Victorian and English gardens. Shades of violets and lavenders are also considered as Royal colors and so I’ve picked the name, Royal Gardens, suggested by Karole Bowlds.
