PROJECT B670
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Make this urban chic bracelet using 3 different types of metal beads and a modified ladder stitch. You will be surprised at how quickly this bracelet comes together and how comfortable it is to wear.
Instructions
This project results in a 6.5" bracelet. If you need a longer one, please purchase an additional pack of BMB-5305 Antique Brass 4mm Cube Beads.
  1. Cut as long of a length of Wildfire black beading thread as you are comfortable working with and thread it onto a size 12 beading needle. Place a stop bead 12 inches from the end.
  2. Please watch the video tutorial How to Bead Weave a Metal Bead Bracelet using Modified Ladder Stitch. This video shows how to make the Firenze bracelet and how to attach the clasp.
