Flirtation Bracelet from Jill Wiseman's Beautiful Beaded Ropes

For beaders, at least, and other people of discerning wit and wisdom, Jill Wiseman’s Beautiful Beaded Ropes has been one of 2012′s most anticipated book releases. And now the book has released!

Jill is an immensely popular designer, teacher, and social media gadfly; the in-crowd follows her Tapestry Beads website and blog. Jill’s book, the newest release in the Beadweaving Master Class series, presents 24 sumptuous beaded jewelry rope projects that utilize a variety of beading stitches. So the book is organized by stitch: spiral ropes, peyote ropes, netted ropes, herringbone ropes, right angle weave ropes, and ropes using other stitches, including Oglala, chevron, and brick. Jill’s designs — necklaces, bracelets, earrings, lariats, and even a ring project — are fun to make, completely wearable, and, frankly, dazzling. And her instructions are clear and precise.

    I’ve been making the projects in this book for a while now and have loved them all. However, I have tried the Heirloom Necklace multiple times and can not get the outer rope to come out properly. I’ve even had a beady friend give it a try; she couldn’t figure it out, either. Bought the video version to see if Jill showed it there but it isn’t included.

    Does anyone know if there is a magic trick or possibly an error in the instructions? No matter what I do, when I step up to add the next row, I have gaping holes that I can’t tighten up. What am I missing?
