Free Beaded Heart Bracelet Pattern
I created this beaded heart bracelet pattern as a way of coping with all the horrible news stories, like what happened this past Tuesday. I know that I cannot control what happens. However, I can control how I respond. This is what inspired the Courageous Heart Bracelet. The courageous heart even during times of adversity strives to make a better world.

Create bracelet end cap working in the ladder stitch.
On 4’ of beading thread, pick up 1A and 1B. Pass up through the A and down through B. Pick up 1B. Pass up through the prior B and down through the one you just added. Work one ladder stitch using A.
Pick up 1C, 1D, and 2E. Pass through D, 2E, and D.
Pick up 1C, 1A, 1C, 1D, and 2E. Pass through D, 2E and D. Repeat this step until you have achieved your desired length. Pick up 1C and 1D.
Work one ladder stitch using B. Pick up 1B, Pass the needle out through A and back towards the middle through B and 1E. (Pass through the second hole of E.)
Pick up 1F and pass through the next E.
Pick up 1G and pass through the next E.
Embellish across the row. After you pass through the last E, pass out through the closest B and back in through the B above it.

Pick up 1C. Pass through A. Then weave in and out the center 2B to be in position to attach your clasp.
Attaching the Clasp
It is up to you to decide what type of clasp you use to finish off your bracelet. (If I had owned a matching toggle clasp, then I would have used it. ) For me the choice is usually determined by what is available.
