Olive Tree Pearl Bracelet

PROJECT B2502
The beautiful natural color of these green pearls need no additional adornment. This design might be simple but it's beautiful.
Instructions
This design measures approximately 7.5 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the number of pearls.
  1. Before you begin, please watch our video: How to Do Pearl Knotting Using Tweezers. To begin this bracelet design, take the griffin silk off the card.
  2. Then take the end with the needle and string it through one thread protector, going up and over the horse shoe and pull all the way through until you have a 4-6 inch tail. Before making a knot, slip on one end of the magnetic clasp. Then, tie a knot as close as you can get it to the bottom of the thread protector. If you look at the photo of the finished piece, you will see that this knot is hidden by a crimp cover.
  3. Once you have your knot you will begin your pearl knotting. Note: Do not trim the tail at this time. Using the end with the needle add on 21 pearls.
  4. When you come to the end, thread the silk up and over a thread protector and add the second half of the magnetic clasp. Make another knot, as close as you can get it to the thread protector. Add a tiny dab of GS Hypo Cement to each knot
  5. Finally, please watch our video: Quick Tip: Using Crimp Covers as Knot Covers in Pearl Knotting. In this video you will see how to add a dab a glue to each knot, how to trim the ends and secure it with a crimp cover.
