Joyeux Noel Woven Bracelet

PROJECT B8008
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
Festive yuletide colors come together in this variation on flat spiral stitch, incorporating 2-Hole Czech glass MiniDuos, Swarovski crystal pearls, and Toho Demi Round seed beads.
Instructions
This bracelet measures 8 inches total. To modify the length, adjust the number of units woven.
  1. Please watch our video: How to Do Flat Spiral Stitch Using SuperDuos. Using what you have learned in the video, begin by cutting a length of 4 feet of Fireline thread, or as long as you are comfortable working with, and thread a size 12 beading needle. As you work, you may need to tie off and add new thread. For this project, you will be substituting a downsized assortment of beads for the ones shown in the video. Please see photo for reference, and note design variations offered in the video.
  2. Follow along with the video to start off your bracelet and weave your desired length of flat spiral stitch.
  3. To create your beaded loop clasp, please refer to the latter portion of this video, starting at minute 24. Follow along with the video to string a beaded loop on one side of your bracelet using Toho Demi Round 11/0 white and 8/0 red seed beads (see photo for reference). Then add an 8mm pearl to the other side of your bracelet as shown in the video. Tie off and weave in your thread.
  4. Enjoy your bracelet!
