MEMENTO BAND

©2018 Deborah Roberti

Memento Band

Use size 11/0 and 8/0 seed beads, Czech 6x6mm two-hole tile beads and Kheops par Puca beads (Czech 6mm two-hole triangle-shaped beads) to create this silky band that feels great on your wrist. The stitch technique looks intricate but once you get the hang of the repeat sequence, you’ll find that it is really quite easy and sturdy. Clasping instructions are included for single-strand and 4-strand clasps.

NOTE: After creating this design, it was brought to my attention that although I don’t use any crystal, it is very similar to Amanda Nel’s Nefertiti's Bracelet. If you would prefer a crystal version, check out Amanda’s pattern at her Etsy shop here:

Stitch: Ladder and square stitch variation

Beads Used: Size 11/0 rocaille seed beads, 8/0 rocaille seed beads (Czech Matubo size 8/0 seed beads work particularly well in this design), Kheops par Puca beads (Czech 6mm two-hole triangle-shaped beads) and Czech 6x6mm two-hole tile beads (Czechmates is the most popular brand but any 6x6mm two-hole tile bead will work wonderfully)

Approx Finished Size: About 1.25 inches wide to desired length
