Retired - Nebulous Bracelet

PROJECT B1017
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Advanced
Rutilated quartz gemstone beads in shades of black, white, and gray make the beaded beads in this adjustable bracelet beautiful and interesting.
Instructions
  1. Begin by watching the video: How to Make a Beaded Bead Using Right Angle Weave Double Needle Method. Using 4mm black rutilated quartz round gemstone beads, .006" Fireline thread in smoke, and size 12 beading needles, make six beaded beads as shown in the video.
  2. Next, thread a 2", 21 gauge silver plated eye pin through one of your beaded beads, making sure that it's going through two of the smaller holes. Create a simple wire loop just after the bead. Repeat this step with the other five beaded beads.
  3. Thread three more quartz beads onto another eye pin and create a simple wire loop after the beads to create an extension link. Repeat this step two more times.
  4. Use 6mm, 19 gauge silver plated jump rings to connect the six beaded bead links end to end. Then attach the extension links end to end and add onto one end of the bead links. Attach a jump ring to the end of the last extension link.
  5. Use another jump ring to attach a 15mm silver plated lobster clasp to the last beaded bead link.
  6. You can use any of the jump rings attached to the extension links with your clasp to close your bracelet. Choose the one that gives you the desired fit.
