Retired - Ahava Bracelet

PROJECT B112
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
Silver-lined cobalt blue seed beads appear to glow in this fantastic silver accented multi-strand bracelet.
Instructions
  1. Cut six pieces of Soft Touch at six inches long each.
  2. Secure one end of each strand with a Bead Stopper.
  3. On the first strand, thread seventeen seed beads, a hexagon bead, a cathedral bead, a hexagon bead, and five more seed beads. Secure that strand.
  4. On the second strand, thread the same beads, only in reverse order. Secure that strand.
  5. Continue in this manner, alternating patterns, on the remaining four strands.
  6. Separate the strands into groups of two and thread each group of two strands through each of the three holes of the 3-strand spacer bead.
  7. String the next segment of the bracelet, all six strands, exactly how you threaded the first segment.
  8. Once again, separate the strands into groups of two and thread them through the other 3-strand spacer bead.
  9. Thread the third segment of the bracelet, each of the six strands, exactly like the first two.
  10. Separate both ends of the bracelet into groups of two strands.
  11. On each of the doubled strands, thread a crimp tube, but do not crimp it yet.
  12. Thread each of the doubled strands through each of the holes on the two strand reducers, back through the crimp beads, and crimp them down.
  13. Trim off excess wire.
  14. To the single loop on one of the strand reducers, add two jump rings.
  15. To the last jump ring, add the lobster clasp.
  16. To the single hole on the other strand reducer, add a jump ring.
  17. To that jump ring, add the chain extender (you may trim off an inch or so).
  18. Thread a single cathedral bead onto a headpin and make a simple loop.
  19. Open the loop, and add it to the last link of your extender chain.
