Gigi Bracelet

PROJECT B2150
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This Cubic Right Angle Weave Bracelet features Czech Glass Fire Polish 2mm Beads, which makes a tight weave while providing tons of faceted glimmer.
Instructions
Before beginning this project please watch our video: How to Do a Basic Cubic Right Angle Weave.
  1. Cut off a length of thread that you are comfortable working with and thread a needle. You may need to tie off and weave in more thread as you work.
  2. Begin the cubic right angle weave as shown in the video. When you build the first three units alternate the gold and silver beads. Fold the first three units so that the silver beads are all vertical and the gold beads are all horizontal. Note: Begin and end the bracelet with the silver beads.
  3. Weave until you have your desired length. The clasp will add just under 1 inch.
  4. When you come to the end, string on one silver 2mm bead and one closed jump ring. Thread back down through the bead you just added and now take your needle and go across the right angle weave unit and through the bead directly across from where your thread is coming out. Now take your needle and thread it up through the 2mm bead and the closed jump ring. Weave it back down and across to the bead on the other side. You are essentially making a criscross with the thread to secure that closed jump ring. Tie off and weave in your thread.
  5. Open one jump ring and attach one end of the magnetic clasp to the closed jump ring and close the jump ring.
  6. Repeat the above two steps for the other side of the bracelet.
  7. All done!
