Retired - Fuschia Finesse Bracelet

PROJECT B8038
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This dainty bracelet features pink picot edging to complement delicate gold tone SilverSilk knit wire mesh. Alternating Swarovski crystal and Miyuki seed beads are brick stitched along both sides to create a feminine, finished look.
Instructions
This bracelet measures 8 inches total. To modify the size, adjust the length of your SilverSilk and the number of beads woven.
  1. Please watch our video: How to Weave a Beaded Edge onto Flat SilverSilk. Using what you have learned in the video, begin by cutting 7 inches of SilverSilk (you will trim about 1/4 inch off each end once your beaded edging is complete, before adding your end caps). Also cut 4 feet of beading thread, or as much as you are comfortable working with, and thread your size 12 needle.
  2. Begin about 1/2 inch from the end of the SilverSilk, and follow along with the video to start your picot edge with brick stitch using seed beads. Continue to create an alternating pattern of seed beads and crystal beads in the same manner as shown in the video. You will need to tie off and add new thread as you weave. Complete your beaded edging 1/2 inch from the opposite end of your SilverSilk, tie off and weave in your thread. Repeat this entire step on the other side of your SilverSilk to create your second beaded edge.
  3. To attach end caps and a clasp to your bracelet, please watch our video: How to Finish Flat Silversilk with Ribbon Crimp Ends. Trim about 1/4 inch off each end of your SilverSilk, then follow along with the video to attach your cap ends and clasp. Enjoy!
