Biloba Bracelet

PROJECT B8041
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Beginner
Satin rainbow hues delight the eye in this bracelet of pearlescent Minos par Puca beads nestled between 2-hole Ginko beads. Simple and elegant, the design is finished using thread protectors and a magnetic clasp.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 7 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, adjust the number of beads strung.
  1. Cut 2 feet of Fireline and thread a size 12 beading needle. Add a small bead stopper onto your thread, leaving a 4 inch tail.
  2. Thread your needle through the wide end of one Ginko bead. Then string on one Minos par Puca bead. Continue the pattern for a total of 20 Ginko beads and 20 Minos par Puca beads or until you have reached your desired length (make sure your Ginko beads are all facing the same direction).
  3. Now thread your needle through one side of a wire protector. String on one side of your magnetic clasp. Then thread your needle back through the wire protector.
  4. String on one Minos par Puca bead, then thread your needle back through the second hole of the last Ginko bead you strung. String on another Minos par Puca bead. Continue the pattern down this side of the bracelet, stringing one Minos par Puca bead between each Ginko bead as you thread your way down the opposite side of the bracelet, for a total of 21 Minos par Puca beads (see photo for reference).
  5. String on another wire protector. Then slide on the other side of your magnetic clasp.
  6. String on one more Minos par Puca bead.
  7. Remove the stopper bead and tie the two ends of your Fireline together in an overhand knot so that the knot lands snugly between the Minos par Puca bead and the Ginko bead.
  8. Tie off and weave in both ends of your thread. Enjoy!
