Retired - Snow Owl Bangle

PROJECT B2036
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This flexible spiral stitch bangle features a whimsical horned owl pewter bead by Green Girl Studios. The owl is surrounded by the sparking snow of white and silver Czech seed beads.
Instructions
To make the project please watch our video: How to do Spiral Rope Stitch for Beading.
  1. You will complete about 7 inches; or your desired length, of spiral stitch bead weaving. You may want to measure on your wrist as you go, keeping in mind that there is no clasp so it will need to slide over your wrist easily. The owl bead will add 15mm.
  2. To begin you will need a length of thread that is about 5-6 feet. Leave a tail of one foot when you begin your spiral.
  3. To create this spiral stitch you will use the 8/0 silver lined crystal as the center and use the 8/0 white wedding mix for the outer spiral.
  4. When you have your desired length you will thread on the owl bead. Use the same technique as demonstrated in the video to tie in your thread to the beginning side of the spiral stitch. Weave down through a few beads and then weave back up and go through the owl bead again to the other side. Weave in and tie off your thread. With the tail you left at the beginning repeat this process. Be sure to go through the owl bead four times to secure it onto the bangle.
