I used to shop at a bead store called “The Garden of Beadin” and it sparked my interest in all things jewelry making. After making some earrings and a few stretch bracelets, I predictably switched gears to another craft project. Fast-forward several years and I wanted a new project. The previous store I shopped at had since closed and one of its employees decided they would open their own bead store—Blueberry Beads. One of the sample bracelets made from a FREE pattern was on display and when I saw it, I knew I had to make it. I modified my first attempt and made it 5 rows instead of 7. It was so simple and easy to make I had to go back and make the original sample I saw in the store.
