STEPPING-STONE BAND

©2018 Deborah Roberti

Stepping-Stone Band

Use size 11 seed beads, any type of 3mm bead, Czech two-hole diamond beads (GemDuo or DiamonDuo) and Honeycomb beads to make this easy band that feels great on any wrist. It looks especially cool when you use GemDuo “Duet” (two-color) beads. Instead of Honeycomb beads, you can use 6x6mm or 7x7mm two-hole Czech cabochon beads. Full step-by-step directions included.

NOTE: After creating this design, it was brought to my attention that although I use GemDuo/DiamonDuo beads, it is very similar to Angie Martin’s Bandwidth Bracelet, created using SuperDuo beads and seed beads. I contacted Angie and she felt my design was different enough for me to proceed with publishing. If you are looking for a more intricate SuperDuo version of this band, though, check out Angie’s Bandwidth Bracelet at NannyPinksPassion here:

Stitch: Right-angle weave and netting variation

Beads Used: Size 11 seed beads, any type of 3mm bead (round and fire-polished beads work best), Czech two-hole diamond beads (GemDuo or DiamonDuo) and Honeycomb beads (you can use 6x6mm or 7x7mm two-hole Czech cabochon beads instead)

Approx Finished Size: About an inch wide to desired length
