Antigua Beaches Bracelet in White Howlite

PROJECT B2324
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
White Howlite is the perfect accompaniment to the hammered gold spacer beads in this simple and stackable bracelet.
Instructions
This bracelet measures approximately 7.5 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the number of beads strung respectively.
  1. Cut off 14 inches of beading wire. Add a bead stopper about 3 inches from one end.
  2. String on the beads in this order: 1 gold spacer bead, 4 gemstone beads, 3 gold spacer beads, 1 gemstone bead, 2 gold spacer beads, 1 gemstone bead, 1 gold spacer bead, 1 gemstone bead, 1 gold spacer bead, 1 gemstone bead, 2 gold spacer beads, 1 gemstone bead, 3 gold spacer beads, 4 gemstone beads, and 1 gold spacer bead.
  3. String on one crimp tube. Thread the wire through the wire protector as seen in our Quick Tip Video: Using Wire Protectors for Strung Jewelry. Then before threading the wire back through the crimp tube slip on the loop of one end of the magnetic clasp. Thread the beading wire back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp the crimp tube. Thread the wire back through a few adjacent beads. Trim any excess wire. Add a crimp cover.
  4. Move to the beginning side of the bracelet and remove the bead stopper. Repeat the above step on this side of the bracelet. Make sure you don't pull too taut because you want the bracelet to have a nice bend when closed.
