Hopefully I can keep things interesting so that my Bracelet a Week pieces don't get too boring. I may have to make the occasional non-Egyptian bracelet here and there before I run out of ideas! The first place I looked for inspiration was my collection of books on Ancient Egypt, and I spent...

This week's bracelet is yet another Egyptian inspired design, but this time it's a little less literal. It all started with a carved boxwood button in the shape of a lizard on a log. I shared a peek at this little guy back in April, along with a tribal necklace that I entered into this year's...

This week's bracelet was inspired by a pair of amazing falcon earrings found in the tomb of Tutankhamun. The design features duck headed birds with the distinct falcon wings of Horus. From their tails cascade feather-like cloisonné pendants with square and spearhead shapes in gold, blue, and...

All that jewelry talk reminded me of this beautiful bracelet I had on my Desktop somewhere: Delfina Delettrez Fringe Bracelet. I saw this bracelet weeks ago and I liked it so much, I saved the image. I'm not so good at wearing jewelry, you see, but I'm so darn good at looking at bracelets,...

I wish I could tell you where the idea for this week's bracelet came from, but I can't remember exactly how it gelled. I was thinking of designs for an upcoming theme, and somewhere along the way I decided it would be really fun to sew a whole bunch of small peyote tubes together. I wanted...

Before I share this week's bracelet design, I have a beading confession to make. I am terrified of bugles. Or at least I was before I tackled this project and faced my fears. Since I started bead weaving, my experiences with bugles have not been ideal. I had begun to think of them as evil...
