John Bead Rhombus Bead Bracelet Step by Step

The project pattern for this gorgeous bracelet is linked here.

When we launched the Rhombus bead after our search for the “Next Great Bead” contest ended we knew we had something special. Lena Gillespie designed the bead and won all the prizes associated with the search.
Now we have new designers discovering the bead and the attached free project pattern was written and designed by Danielle Wickes for John Bead.

The Next Great Bead – Introducing The Rhombus Bead!

Last year, our company launched “The Search for The Next Great Bead.” We wanted to manufacture a product that was designed by someone who loved beads.
Happily, we received a wonderful submission from Lena Gillespie.

The shaped bead she submitted is considered a Rhombus;
a parallelogram with opposite equal acute angles, opposite equal obtuse angles and four equal sides.
Her sizing was much bigger than a regular seed bead and to show us how her bead would work she submitted “larger than life” foam core versions so we could actually play with them like a puzzle.
She also submitted some truly wonderful sketches showing the bead in use. As you can see, her design idea has been realized.

We believe that new beaders will enjoy working with this bead because they will be able to complete a project quickly. Skilled beaders will find new ways to incorporate this bead with smaller beads for fantastic new patterns.

While we love the simplicity of the beads side by side,
we also love how one single bead can make its own impact
in a wired ring or strung on a thin choker.

fantastic bead!
