I love Talk Like a Pirate Day. As Tom Smithsings "That time in September when sea dogs remember/That grown-ups still know how ta play!"
So I've posted a couple patterns and projects for Talk Like a Pirate Day. It's natural that eventually I'd make bracelet patterns for it since I love bracelets too.
This is made with Delicas in pale pink and black, the clasp is explain here, and instructions for even count flat peyote can be found here.
The patterns are seperate files.
Once I started graphing, I thought "That Jolly Roger would make a cute earring pattern", and I graphed out earrings that don't really match the bracelet. The top "gem" on the pattern is meant to be in birthstone colors. Mine is emerald. I think it would be really elegant with fringe and crystals in the fringe the same color as the "gem", or possibly brick stitched mini gem motifs in the fringe.
Just for fun extras;
An extra earring pattern.
A Ninja bracelet. Because you can't be as much of a geek as I am without having occasionally wondered about Pirates vs. Ninjas, and graph paper for you to graph your own bracelet with colored pencils or with a graphics program.
As usual, I'd love to see finished projects, you can either send them to me through e-mail, or post them on our forum
