Learn to bead a Book of Kells Bracelet with just Japanese seed beads, shank buttons, and thread. The Book of Kells weave is a fine beaded fabric that is flexible and comfortable. You can weave it in many different shapes because the pattern repeats like wallpaper.

This tutorial includes step-by-step instructions for weaving the bracelet with the button hole clasp. This clasp is quite easy to do and undo, and it stays buttoned when you want it to. You will also learn how to layer the Book of Kells beadwork for 3D effects, and I show lots of examples to inspire you.

An unusual and complex angle weave, the Book of Kells design is suitable for intermediate bead weavers or advanced beginners who are already comfortable with right angle weave. If you like RAW and want a new challenge, you’ll love this.

The tutorial is 29 pages, including over 100 illustrations and photographs. The tutorial is a PDF file that gives complete step-by-step instructions for how to make the aqua and black bracelet with a button clasp. On pages 19-24, are step-by-step instructions for how to add layers to the Book of Kells weave to thicken it, including step photos of the largest pendant. Using these techniques, I made all of the pieces shown. As an added bonus, for more advanced weavers, I also include clear photos, brief hints and tips for making the pink bracelet (pp. 25-26), a chunky bracelet with larger beads (p. 27), and the largest beaded bead (pp. 28-29).
