Easter Basket Bracelet

PROJECT B7026
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
Swarovski crystal bicones in airy opalescent pastel colors evoke tiny hand-dyed eggs in this sparkling right angle weave bracelet. A pretty Easter accessory!
Instructions
These instructions make a 7 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, adjust the number of times you repeat the bicone pattern.
  1. Begin by watching our video on how to do flat right angle weave (RAW). Cut a length of Fireline thread as long as you are comfortable working with and thread a size 12 beading needle.
  2. Based on the technique shown in the video, string 4 bicones in the following order: blue, pink, yellow, pink. Then pass your needle back through the first bicone strung to create a loop. Going in the same direction, pass again through the second and third bicones, completing your first RAW unit.
  3. String another 3 bicones in the following order: pink, blue, pink. Then pass back through the anchoring yellow bead, creating a loop. Pass again through the next two consecutive beads.
  4. String another 3 bicones in the following order: pink, yellow, pink. Then pass back through the anchoring blue bead, creating a loop. Pass again through the next two consecutive beads.
  5. Repeat steps 3-4 another 13 times, until your weaving is 6 1/2 inches long. You may need to tie off and add new thread while working.
  6. At the end of the bracelet, add 5 blue seed beads to your needle, 1 closed jump ring, and 5 more blue seed beads. Then loop around and pass back through the bicone on the end. Pass your needle through the beaded loop again to reinforce it.
  7. Next, go down the first side of the bracelet, adding a blue seed bead between each of the pink bicones.
  8. At the other end of the bracelet, add 4 blue seed beads to your needle, the loop of your clasp, and 4 more seed beads. Then loop around and pass back through the bicone on the end. Pass your needle through the beaded loop again to reinforce it.
  9. Now go down the second side of the bracelet, adding a blue seed bead between each of the pink bicones.
  10. Tie off and weave in your thread tails. Enjoy your bracelet!
