Summer fashion is all about light, airy, and effortless accessories, and that's just what our readers were loving this month! Looking back at the most popular jewelry making tutorials of August, it was all about easy breezy bracelets, especially free macrame bracelet patterns and free beaded wrap bracelet patterns. Our readers just couldn't get enough summery bead bracelet patterns this month, and we can't blame them! Cute, bright, stackable bead bracelet patterns are the perfect summer fashion accessory, and that's why we packed as many into August as possible.
What else were you digging in the last full month of summer? Your favorite jewelry making tutorials, besides summery bead bracelet patterns, ranged from effortless earring patterns to awesome upcycling projects (and you even snuck in a peyote stitch pattern!). Overall, August's top jewelry making tutorials were fresh and fun, cute and colorful, easy and eclectic projects that were perfectly suited to simple fashion and relaxing summer days. Before we break out the scarves and sweaters and start featuring our fall-themed free jewelry patterns, let's take one last listful look back at the best jewelry making tutorials from August 2012.
