Retired - Abby Twin Bead Bracelet

PROJECT B1009
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
Preciosa Twin beads and Miyuki Delica seed beads are woven together in a circular stitch in this delicate bracelet. It would be lovely for a dressed up evening out, or to add flair to any everyday look.
Instructions
Measure your wrist before you begin so that you can decide how long you will want your bracelet to be. The cuff style looks best with a somewhat snug fit. Keep in mind that the clasp will add about half an inch to the length.
  1. Begin by cutting as long of a length of white Wildfire beading thread as you are comfortable working with. I like to work with about 6' of thread at a time, but find the length that feels comfortable to you. Thread a size 12 beading needle with the length of thread. You will need to end your thread and begin a new one once or twice while weaving this bracelet. Watch the video: How to Tie Off and Add a New Thread in Bead Weaving to learn how.
  2. Watch the video: How to Bead Weave a Twin Bead Bracelet Using a Circular Stitch. This video will show you how to weave together your twin beads and size 11/0 Delica beads in this circular stitch. Follow the instructions given in the video to complete your bracelet. The video will also explain how to attach a clasp to your bracelet.
