This was much easier to make than I would have thought and took only a few hours to complete. The clasp is my favorite part. Ellen's bead choices are just perfect and blend effortlessly. My only complaint is that the thread is very scratchy, so I lined my bracelet back with ribbon. Can't wait to get more bead mixes to make more of them. – Lauren Dowd

We wanted a bead stew bracelet to reflect the deep quiet of the Northeastern forest in mid-summer, when the leaves are so thick and the trees do deep that you can't even see the sky.
This bracelet uses greens and browns in as many sizes and shapes as we could find --- daggers and leaves and tear drops and megatams and seed beads and triangles and -- need I go on?
We threaded these on a wonderful green/brown marled thread (though it could easily be deep green or rich brown ) and started to knit. You can almost smell the loam.
We found a fantastic clasp to go with the vision. This clasp is made of no-tarnish brass and looks like gold at a fraction of the cost. It is a lovely leaf with a swirling stem, through which the rod end of the toggle slides. You can see a close-up of it if you click on the photo of the bracelet to the upper right here.
A bracelet worthy of Gaia.
Each kit has everything yu will need except the knitting needles. We suggest size 0. The pattern is the same as for the other Bead Stew Bracelets. Make sure that you choose the option via the drop-down menu that you need -- with pattern or without.
