Kavala Cuff

PROJECT B2031
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This cuff uses the CzechMates two hole rectangle beads as the perfect spacers for the rings of memory wire.
Instructions
  1. Begin by cutting 6 rings of memory wire. Cut each ring so it is a slightly over lapping circle.
  2. Use your round nose pliers to bend one end of each wire into a small loop facing the outer side of the bracelet. Take one eye pin and thread it through one loop, add two silver seed beads, thread it though the next loop and add two silver seed beads. Continue up through all six loops. When you are through all six, make a simple wire loop to secure the eye pin in place.
  3. You are going to be using your bead stopper to space your wires as you work. Start by placing it near where all your looped ends are joined with the eye pin. Just place each wire into the grooves of the bead stopper at even intervals.
  4. See the wires as 1-6, starting at the top of the bracelet. You will thread the beads in this order. See the photos for reference.
  5. Wire 1 and 2 - one white two hole brick. Wire 3 and 4 - one blue two hole brick. Wire 5 and 6 - one white two hole brick.
  6. Wire1 - six silver seed beads. Wire 2 - two silver seed beads. Wire 3 - two silver seed beads. Wire 4 - two silver seed beads. Wire 5 - two silver seed beads. Wire 6 - six silver seed beads.
  7. Wire 2 and 3 - one white two hole brick. Wire 4 and 5 - one blue two hole brick. Wire 2 - two silver seed beads. Wire 3 - two silver seed beads. Wire 4 - two silver seed beads. Wire 5 - two silver seed beads.
  8. Wire 1 and 2 - one blue two hole brick. Wire 3 and 4 - one white two hole brick. Wire 5 and 6 - one blue two hole brick.
  9. Wire1 - six silver seed beads. Wire 2 - two silver seed beads. Wire 3 - two silver seed beads. Wire 4 - two silver seed beads. Wire 5 - two silver seed beads. Wire 6 - six silver seed beads.
  10. Wire 2 and 3 - one blue two hole brick. Wire 4 and 5 - one white two hole brick. Wire 2 - two silver seed beads. Wire 3 - two silver seed beads. Wire 4 - two silver seed beads. Wire 5 - two silver seed beads.
  11. Continue this pattern all the way around the memory wire. Move your bead stopper as needed to scoot your beads into their proper place. When you come to the end, remove your bead stopper to continue working.
  12. Use your round nose pliers to bend the end of each wire into a small loop facing the outer side of the bracelet. Repeat the process with the eye pin the same way as the other side. If needed, snip the ends of the wire to achieve the desired length.
