Bridal Lace Bracelet

PROJECT B2234
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
A lustrous color palette of matte crystal and white luster SuperDuos are woven together in a tight herringbone pattern for a lacy bridal look.
Instructions
  1. Thread a needle with a length of Fireline that you are comfortable working with. As you work, you will need to tie off and add new thread.
  2. Add a stopper bead about 12 inches from the tail.
  3. Please watch our video: How to Stitch Herringbone with Two Hole Beads.
  4. From what you learned in the video, pick up one druk, one white superduo, one druk, one crystal superduo, one druk, one crystal superduo, one druk, and one white superduo.
  5. Go through the second hole of the last white superduo. Now pick up one druk and one white superduo, and go into the next druk and up through the hole of the crystal superduo.
  6. Pick up one druk and one crystal superduo, and go into the next druk and up through the hole of the crystal superduo.
  7. Pick up one druk and one crystal superduo, and go into the next druk and up through the hole of the white superduo.
  8. Pick up one druk and one white superduo, and go into the next druk and up through the second hole of that white superduo.
  9. You will continue to weave to your desired length (note: the clasp will add about 1/2 inch) while keeping the two outside rows white and the four inner rows crystal. Please see the photo to help you with the pattern if you need to.
  10. To add the clasp, weave your tail along the thread path of the end row and have your needle come up thru the second druk bead along the edge. Pick up one druk thread on one loop of the slide clasp. Pick up another druk and weave your needle down thru the adjacent crystal superduo and up thru the next druk. Pick up one druk thread on the second loop of the slide clasp. Pick up another druk and weave your needle down thru the adjacent crystal superduo. You can weave through this pattern again to secure the clasp. Once you have done so, tie in and weave in your tail.
  11. Move to the next side and repeat the above to attach the other half of the clasp. Tie off and weave in your thread.
  12. All done!
