New Herringbone Bracelet Variations
We’ve been on a bit of a Herringbone bender here at Bead World. It all started with our brand new class, the Tapestry Herringbone Bracelet Class.

As much as we adore our four amazing color combinations, there are lots of looks you can achieve with the herringbone stitch. Here are a few:

Have fun trying new combinations in your herringbone projects!
