Tammy designed this weave back in 2012 when she owned and operated Mariposa Bead Company in Barrie Ontario. I have been bugging her for around 4 years to get a tutorial written so we can share her design!!
She holds the copyright for this pattern in 2012 registered in Canada, and has given us exclusive permission to make kits with her tutorial! We will be donating a portion of all the kits sales to The Little Blue Schoolhouse for Autism, on behalf of Tammy's Son Tavish. Tavish is thriving at this wonderful school and we are so very happy to work with them!
Please note the colour swatches are to let you know what the colour choice will look like!
This bracelet kit includes: Saw cut Bright Aluminum and NEW Saw Cut Anodized Aluminum Rings, which are easy to learn and work with. You get a detailed instruction package to learn this weave. Kit contains enough rings to make 10 inches of Mariposa chain!
All Project kits come with all rings, instructions, and findings needed to make the project as photoed and described above.
You will need pliers - one pair for each hand to complete this project.
We recommend pliers with no teeth - Our favourite tool are these Xurons. They are the best tool we have found!
These Chain Nose pliers are a less expensive tool but work well for these kits.
These Wide Nose pliers are great for kits that use rings larger than 18 gauge.
