The inspiration for this piece came whilst on holiday in the Scottish Highlands with my family in the summer of 2014. I felt the pattern had a bit of a tartan feel to it and that the open version of the weaving looked very lacy: hence the name Highland Lace.

The weave lends itself to many design options and is therefore great fun to play around with.
It can be made with size 11 seed beads as the main beads and size 15s as the embellishment beads (using a size 12 needle) or with size 8 seed beads as the main beads and size 11s as the embellishment beads (with a size 10 needle).

The bracelet can also be made as a long rectangular unit rather than as diamonds – as seen in its sister pattern, Highland Lace Flower.

If you prefer something daintier, the bracelet can be made with the small diamond grid only (photo at the end of the tutorial) or the grids can be rearranged to form an attractive pendant or necklace or choker.

The pattern can also be woven with open centres, which led to the “Lace” in its name, or with seed beads or pearls in the centres, which led to the “Lace Flower” name. 3mm pearls or size 8 beads work as central embellishments in the large version and 2mm pearls or size 11 beads work as central embellishments in the smaller version.

The pattern is suitable for an intermediate beader.

I am happy for you to sell items made using the tutorial locally, in galleries and at local craft fairs. I do not permit the selling of items made using the tutorial on the internet. I also do not permit mass production of items made using the tutorial. Please credit me as the designer.

If you would like to buy a finished pendant please contact me to discuss it.

Please note, the pattern is written in ENGLISH only. The photographs are clear and detailed so many beaders will manage to create pieces using the photographs alone.
