Online Classes & Group Craft Now Available

Take A Class With Rebeca!

online-classes_group-craftI’m excited to announce that I’m now offering online classes as well as Group Craft sessions.

Anyone who’s taken a class with me knows that my teaching style involves a lot of 1-on-1 coaching. For so long, I hesitated to offer online classes, because I didn’t know how to translate that to the virtual classroom. However, after having done a few private and small-group lessons and tweaking my setup, I’m thoroughly enjoying online teaching and am grateful to be able to reach people who would never make it to an in-person class in California.

A huge advantage of online teaching is that my secondary overhead camera allows you to very closely see what I’m doing–without my lunchtime onion breath invading your personal space!  😉Demonstrations for online classes are recorded, so you can watch the replays as much as you’d like for up to 60 days after class ends.

For now, you’ll find current offerings on, along with a variety of other services that have been keeping me busy these days. (In 2022 I’m finally going to tackle creating a new Blue Buddha website, but in the meantime, my personal website will house items and services not available in the B3 Etsy shop.)

If you’d like me to create a class for a specific weave, just let me know below or send an email to [email protected]

In order to provide the best experience, attendance is limited, so don’t wait too long to reserve your seat. Hope to “see” you soon!

GSG Kits Available For Pre-Order

Anodized Aluminum 5-Kit Bundle + Stainless Steel/Bronze Cuff

y early August, you’ll be able to purchase GSG kits in the B3 Etsy shop, woo-hoo! As usual, I’m offering special Early Bird Bundles.

Here’s how it works:

Through June 27, you can pre-order an anodized aluminum 5-kit bundle and/or a special stainless steel and bronze cuff. Because the bundles are pre-order, they won’t sell out!

As a special bonus with the anodized aluminum bundle, you can order additional custom-color kits. Choose from more than 30 color options!

After you pre-order, hang tight for a few weeks and then enjoy the colorful bounty when your package arrives!

Please note that if you’re just looking for 1 or 2 kits, the à la carte kits will be released near the beginning of August.

Reversible Rondo a La Byzantine Project

Combine Bright Greens, Cool Blues and Vivid Pinks To Make This Reversible Cuff

The popular Rondo a la Byzantine cuff is now available in a new limited-edition color combination: Spring Blossoms on one side and Oceanside on the reverse.

Use the diagram below to position the colors in your kit. All bags (except for the clasp) are labeled with their color name.

Purchase kits in the B3 Etsy shop while supplies last. I’ll restock the kits once, so if you miss the initial offering, sign up for the wait list to be notified when the restock is available.

You’ll need instructions for Rondo a la Byzantine, too. Be sure you’re comfortable following the diagram below in order to correctly position your colors, as the instructions DO NOT include step by steps for this colorway. (Note: If you swap the position of certain colors, you may not have enough rings in your kit to complete your project; the kits were designed to complete the project as shown).





New Zeela Variation Kits Available

Level Up Your Zeela Pattern With This Modification

The Zeela weave has received a facelift for 2021! This new variation adds a column of rings along the spine of the weave, filling in negative space and giving you added color possibilities.

Purchase kits in the B3 Etsy shop, currently available in 2 colorways: Neutral Grey or Unicorn.

You’ll need instructions for Zeela, too. Once you’ve completed the basic bracelet, follow the modification below to complete the variation. The free modification instructions are available for both right-handers  and left-handers.

Happy weaving!





Colorful European 4-in-1 Rubbermaille Bracelet

Follow This Chart To Size Your Bracelet

Welcome to the final post in the 3-part Rubber Rainbow series. Do check out the previous posts on Rubber Barrel weave and Half Persian 3-in-1. Using the same size rings, you can also create European 4-in-1. See below for sizing and color tips for Euro 4-in-1 bracelets.

If you’d like to make your own rubbermaille piece, check out the rubber rainbow kits and the European 4-in-1 (Mesh) tutorial in the B3 Etsy shop. Each rainbow pack is enough for 2-3 bracelets, depending upon size and weave.


European 4-in-1 Measurements

In the images and chart below, 1 unit of Euro 4-1 consists of 1 metal ring + 2 rubber rings of the same color.

Ring size is L16 – 16 SWG (1.6 mm) 1/4″ (6.4 mm) AR approx 4.2

For a very small bracelet, you’ll need 24 units. One option is to use 8 colors and repeat each color 3 times:

For a medium size bracelet, you’ll need 30 units. One option is to use 5 colors, and repeat each color 6 times. (See color tip below the image)

Color Tip

The medium bracelet above uses 5 colors, and honestly, it isn’t very rainbow-y. I feel as though a minimum of 6 colors are needed in order to achieve the best rainbow look. If just using 6 colors, I recommend yellow/chartruese, orange, pink (or red), purple, turquoise (or blue) and green.

If you’re not looking to create a rainbow and instead want to cycle through a series of colors, you can still use the chart for color planning purposes. If you have 3 colors, and would like to create a medium size bracelet, your top choices are 27 or 30 units. Let’s say you choose 30 units. Divide the total number of units by 3 in order to determine how many “reps” of each color you need. In this example: 30 ÷ 3 = 10 reps. This means you’ll need 10×1 metal rings + 10×2 rubber rings in each color. In other words, 10 metal rings and 20 rubber rings in each of 3 colors, for a grand total of 30 metal rings and 60 rubber rings.


Below is a complete chart for bracelets from a very small size (5″) all the way up to a very large size (10.5″).

Remember that rubber stretches. If you’re trying to fit a 7.5″ wrist, you can opt for 30 units for a snug fit, or 32—or more!—units for a looser fit.

If you’d like to create an “in between” size not detailed on the chart below, refer to the Rainbow Barrel blog post Sizing Tip, as it also applies to European 4-in-1.

The Rubber Rainbow kits in the B3 Etsy shop have 8 colors of coordinating rubber and anodized aluminum jump rings, allowing you to create any of the rainbow patterns outlined in the chart above.
