    Learn to Ladder By Nicole Anderson Kudos to Chan Luu of Sundance Catalog fame who made this “lattice” all the rage. Weʼve decided to create our own unique designs when teaching how to master this technique.

We have added our silk wrapping technique to lend it finesse, but you can certainly stick with the simple knotted button and loop as we have shown in Part Two of Learn to Ladder. Be sure to watch

    Making a Simple Lariat by Brittany Ketcham This is a quick, easy and adaptable design to necklace, bracelet or even anklets. If you like the multiple-wrap look, just make it longer and keep wrapping it! The materials are straightforward; the secret is choosing beads that will fit on your suede and not move around too much. We like using suede because it hugs the beads which smooth leather or cotton cord canʼt do without knots. Because the suede is also flat rather than round, it helps keep your beads from moving.Be sure

    Harmonies by Janice Parsons Using a weaving technique used for centuries in many cultures, I have made a bracelet using discs that nestle together because of the weave.
