Instructions

  1. Place one crimp bead and the loop on the lobster claw clasp onto a 10-inch length of beading wire. Pass the wire back through the crimp bead, and crimp the crimp bead. Trim excess wire with wire cutters.

  2. String 7 inches (or the desired bracelet length) of size 6 seed beads (core beads). Allow about 3/8-inch of space on the beading wire. String one crimp bead and the closed jump ring onto the beading wire, pass the wire back through the crimp bead, crimp the crimp bead, and trim excess wire.

  3. Thread a 6-foot length of beading thread onto a needle, and bring the needle to the middle of the thread. Tie a square knot at one end of the thread, pass through one core bead, and anchor the thread around the core bead. Place a dot of Hypo Tube Cement onto the knot, and allow the glue to dry.

  4. String one Tri-Bead seed bead and one size 15 seed bead (fringe beads). Pass back down through the Tri-Bead, then through the next core bead. Pull the thread until the fringe beads sit just above the core beads.

  5. In the same manner as Step 4, continue weaving in fringe beads until you have made at least three full passes through the bracelet. (If enough space remains between core beads, make a fourth pass. You may need to skip some core beads.) Tie off and trim the thread according to the technique.

This is a very pretty and unique design. But after reAding thru the supply list, I think I will pass on this one. It's a little more than my wallet can handle right now. When a project costs more than going out and buying it I can't do it. But if I ever find myself with what I need, I will certainly give it a try.
