Giza Bracelet in Caramel

PROJECT B8040
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
Warm Egyptian desert tones come together in this bead woven bracelet using Super Kheops par Puca beads, Brick beads, and Es-O beads. They are strung with Miyuki round seed beads and embellished with antiqued copper rolo chain, then finished with a magnetic clasp.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 6.5 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, adjust the number of beaded units you weave, and add the corresponding amounts of chain to each side of the bracelet. Please note: for a longer bracelet, you will need to purchase additional chain.
  1. To learn how to make this bracelet from start to finish, please watch our video: How to Make the Giza Bracelet Featuring Super Kheops par Puca beads. In this video, you will learn how to create this design using a combination of 2-hole Super Kheops par Puca, Brick, and Es-O beads with Miyuki round seed beads. You will also see how to use jump rings to attach individual lengths of chain to either side of the bracelet, and how to finish off the bracelet with thread protectors and a magnetic clasp.
  2. Enjoy your bracelet!
