Cdn $40.00 +Kit fee: $120 plus HST for Silver Filled Bracelet kit; $53 plus HST for Copper Bracelet kit, payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: This is the most impressive new bracelet I’ve made since Dragonscale. It expands and contracts like an accordion and feels so good on my wrist!
I love this unadorned version, but I can also see a version with beads added in the middle openings or even drop beads along the outer edges. Can you spot the Byzantine building blocks?

The kit includes step-by-step, illustrated instructions, 1 main size of jump rings, and a coordinating slider or toggle clasp. Makes up to a 9″ bracelet. All rings are saw-cut and polished.
