Braided Ladder

by Rebeca Mojica


You may have heard of French braids, but the plait-like edges of this bracelet are actually Persian—Half-Persian 3-in-1 to be exact. This project combines your knowledge of HP 3-in-1 and joins it with a Euro 4-in-1 variation to create an entirely new weave that is supple and luxurious. Instructions for the Braided Ladder design are found in Wirework Spring 2015.

Building Block Prerequisite: This kit requires 2 building blocks: European 4-in-1 (Mesh) and Half Persian 3-in-1.

All additional colorways are shown left. Feeling strong? For a stiffer bracelet, grab your duck-bill pliers  and and substitute the CC14's in the center for a 25 pack of X12 anodized aluminum shown right.
