an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
Please enjoy one of our first free releases, a beautiful Flower Face assembly that is a bit unusual for a cycle and a fashion statement as a bracelet or bangle. This architecture was my idea for an easy Cycle assembly, and the colour pattern was designed by Sylvia Lambourg from France.
This release has word charts, a full materials list, and step-by-step instructions. Please make your own magnificent versions too, and be sure to send in photos (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can include your work in the books.
If you intend to print the pattern and work from the pages, please choose the “Pages” layout, and print at 8.5 x 11, standard letter size. There is a picture of the bangle at actual size that can be cut out with scissors and tried on. (Click the blue words to access the PDF)
If you want to view on your screen, you may prefer “Spreads“, which will show you what the pages will look like in the book. Have fun, and please feel free to share this pattern with anyone you like – just remember to credit Contemporary Geometric Beadwork and Sylvia Lambourg. (Click the blue words to access the PDF)
