The Palms Bracelet - Riviera Resort

PROJECT B739
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Two-hole crescent beads take on a fanned appearance in this bead woven bracelet done in classic resort colors of turquoise, coral, and gold. Interspersed between the fans are Swarovski pearls and Czech glass fire polished round beads. The final touch is a vintage inspired Elegant Elements clasp.
Instructions
The bracelet in this project measures approximately 7.5". You should have enough beads to make a slightly longer bracelet as well. If you want a considerably longer bracelet, you will want to order another pack of Czech Glass beads.
  1. Start this project by measuring 6 feet of thread and placing a needle onto one end. On the other end place a stopper bead that is around 18 inches from the tail.
  2. To do the actual bead weaving, please watch the video: How to Bead Weave a Bracelet using CzechMates 2-hole Crescent Beads. This video will show you how to create the fanned pattern and how to attach and tie off the clasp.
  3. Please note that the video shows you how to attach one half of the clasp, just repeat the same technique to attach the second half.
