Pink Sateen Bracelet

PROJECT B7055
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
Light pink Czech glass beads and silver accents set off white Swarovski crystal pearls in this sweet bridal bracelet. A crystal studded clasp caps off this uncomplicated bead woven design.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 6 1/2 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, adjust the number of beaded RAW units you weave. If you would like to make a bracelet that is longer than 7 1/2 inches, please be advised that you will need to purchase an additional strand of Czech glass beads.
  1. Begin by watching our video on how to do a flat right angle weave. You'll be using a variation of this stitch in this bracelet.
  2. Cut a length of Fireline thread as long as you are comfortable working with and thread a size 12 beading needle. You may need to tie off and add new thread as you work.
  3. String 1 pink Czech glass bead, followed by 1 silver Toho demi round bead. Repeat this pattern 7 more times, so you have 16 beads strung. Bring your thread around so the beads form a loop and tie an overhand knot, leaving an 8 inch tail on the end. Double knot it for strength.
  4. Sew through half of the beads in the loop again so your needle is exiting a pink Czech glass bead across from the knot. String 1 Swarovski crystal white pearl. Sew into a pink Czech glass bead across the loop from where the thread is exiting, so the pearl bead is sitting in the center of the beaded loop. Keep sewing through the beads in your loop to reinforce it.
  5. Exit a pink bead in the center of the far side of the beaded loop with your needle. String 1 silver Toho demi round bead, followed by 1 pink bead. Repeat this pattern 6 more times, and then string another silver Toho demi round bead. Pass your needle back through the bead you originated from, going in the same direction, creating another beaded loop.
  6. Sew through half of the beads in the loop again and exit a pink bead with your needle. String 1 white pearl. Sew into a pink bead across the loop from where the thread is exiting, so the pearl bead is sitting in the center of the beaded loop. Keep sewing through the beads in your loop to reinforce it.
  7. Repeat steps 5-6 another 10 times, so you have a total of 12 beaded units and the bracelet measures 6 inches long.
  8. Exit the pink bead in the middle at the far end of the last loop, as if you were going to going to create another beaded unit. String the hole of half of your silver box clasp, passing your needle from front to back through the hole. Sew back through the same pink bead, creating a loop. Then sew through the hole of the clasp again, passing your needle from back to front, and sew through the pink anchor bead again. Tie off and weave in your thread tail.
  9. Move to the other end of the bracelet and repeat step 8, attaching the second half of the box clasp and reinforcing it. Tie off and weave in your thread tail. Enjoy your bracelet!
