Primary Spiral Bracelet

Primary Spiral Bracelet

Notes from the Artist:

A starter kit, the Primary Spiral Bracelet was a hit at the recent Almost Spring Bead Oasis Show in Toronto. We sold out!!
Learn the basic spiral technique and apply what you have learned to a bracelet. The kit includes enough glass bugle beads,glass seed beads and silvertone findings to make 1 bracelet.
We promised that when the kit was available, we’d offer it at the Show price of just $5.50 and post it free in Canada. The offer remains in tact until May 31, 2009.
Get your DIY (Do It Yourself) Primary Spiral Bracelet kit before we run out or before May 31. 2009.
