Retired - Glantane Bracelet

PROJECT B8013
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This multidimensional bracelet intertwines Czech Glass Trinity beads with Druk beads and Toho seed beads on memory wire. It features TierraCast celtic knot beads on an elevated row of Tohos, creating a look that is substantial yet refined.
Instructions
This bracelet measures 7 inches total. To modify the size, adjust your amounts of memory wire and beads strung on each side accordingly.
  1. To begin creating the outermost strand of your bracelet, use memory wire cutters to cut a length of bracelet memory wire 1.25 rounds long (approximately 8 inches).
  2. Using round nose pliers, grip one end of the memory wire and create an inward facing simple wire loop.
  3. String on 1 Druk bead, 1 teal Trinity bead, 1 grey seed bead, and 1 bronze Trinity bead.
  4. Next, string on 8 grey seed beads, 1 celtic knot bead, 8 grey seed beads, 1 bronze Trinity bead, 1 grey seed bead, and 1 teal Trinity bead.
  5. Repeat step 4 two more times, then string on 1 Druk bead, and create another inward facing simple wire loop on the opposite end of your memory wire.
  6. To begin one of the innermost strands of your bracelet, cut another 1.25 rounds of memory wire and create in inward facing loop on one end. String on 2 Druk beads.
  7. Now string the wire through an additional hole of the teal Trinity bead on your first bracelet strand. String on 1 grey seed bead, then string the wire through an additional hole of the bronze Trinity bead, aligning it with your teal Trinity bead.
  8. String on 10 Druk beads, then repeat the above step to string the wire through the next 2 Trinity beads, remembering to string a grey seed bead in between them. Repeat this step 2 more times, then string on 2 Druk beads and finish off the memory wire with another inward facing loop.
  9. To create the third strand of your bracelet, repeat steps 6-8.
  10. To attach your clasp, use pliers to gently open an inward facing simple wire loop on one of the innermost strands of your bracelet, and close it over a loop of the clasp as you would a jump ring. Repeat this step 3 more times to attach the 4 innermost loops of the bracelet to your 2 strand clasp (see photo for reference). Enjoy your bracelet!
