Retired - Alexis Bracelet

PROJECT B2116
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Create waves with the Alexis Bracelet. By using the 2-Holed Czech Glass Tile beads and Czech Glass Seed beads you can achieve a wave-like effect for a delicate bracelet.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a bracelet that is 7 1/2 inches. To adjust the length, simply add or subtract the number of beads in this design.
  1. Cut off two lengths of beading wire, 12 inches each.
  2. Place the two wires into the bead stopper, leaving a 2 inch tail. Place them evenly within the springs of the bead stopper. You can see an example of this in this video.
  3. To strand 1: add three seed beads.
  4. To strand 2: add three seed beads.
  5. To both strands: add one 2-holed tile bead.
  6. To strand 1: add three seed beads.
  7. To strand 2: add six seed beads.
  8. To both strands: add one 2-holed tile bead.
  9. To strand 1: add six seed beads.
  10. To strand 2: add three seed beads.
  11. To both strands: add one 2-holed tile bead.
  12. Repeat steps 6-11 until you have added 15 2-holed tile beads total and ended with three seed beads on each strand.
  13. Taking one strand and add one crimp tube. Thread it thru one closed jump ring and back down through the crimp tube. Pull until the tube is close to the jump ring. Crimp the crimp tube. Snip any excess wire. Add a crimp cover. Repeat this process for the other strand on this side, adding it to the same closed jump ring you have just added.
  14. Open one jump ring, and attach it to the closed jump ring and the loop of the magnetic clasp. Close the jump ring.
  15. Remove the bead stopper and repeat the above process on the other side of the bracelet. Make sure the pull the wire tightly to create the "wave".
  16. All done!
