Retired - Evergreen Parade Bracelet

PROJECT B2197
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
This bracelet is a glittering parade of Swarovski Crystal Christmas trees. The perfect accessory to any holiday outfit.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a bracelet that is 6.25". To modify the length, simply adjust the number of "trees" strung. You can also add length by adding seed beads to either side of the bracelet.
  1. To begin, cut 12 inches of beading wire. String on one crimp tube about 2 inches from one end and thread the wire through one closed jump ring and back down through the crimp tube. Pull snug so that you have a tail of about 1 inch. Crimp the crimp tube. Add a crimp cover. You can trim the tail of the wire with your flush cutters or thread it though the first few beads strung.
  2. Next, string the bead in this order: one seed bead, 14mm flower bead, one seed bead, 12mm flower bead, one seed bead, 10mm flower bead, one seed bead, 8mm flower bead, one seed bead, 6mm bicone bead. Now repeat for five more trees and end with one seed bead. (Note: Choose any color pattern of seed beads in-between the crystals for a multi-colored twinkle lights design.)
  3. To this end of the wire, string on one crimp tube about 2 inches from one end and thread the wire through the loop of one lobster clasp and back down through the crimp tube. Pull snug, but make sure that your bracelet bends easily around the wrist. Crimp the crimp tube. Add a crimp cover. Trim any excess wire or thread it back though the last few beads strung.
