Retired - The Pearl District

PROJECT B2006
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Named for the Pearl District in Portland, this bracelet celebrates the unique coin pearls and organic look of the natural nut bicone beads.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a bracelet that is 8".
  1. Cut 12" of beading wire.
  2. On one end of your wire, thread the wire through a gold crimp tube and one end of the gold magnetic clasp. Thread the wire back down through the crimp bead and pull snug. You should have about two inches of beading wire slack on one side with your 10" on the other.
  3. Crimp the crimp tube around the wire.
  4. Now begin threading your beads: 3 nut beads, 1 pearl, 3 nut beads, 1 pearl, 3 nut beads, 1 pearl, 3 nut beads, 1 pearl, 3 nut beads, 1 pearl, 3 nut beads, 1 pearl, 3 nut beads, 1 pearl, 3 nut beads. 7 total pearls; 24 total nut beads.
  5. At this time you will simply repeat the first instruction with the crimp bead and clasp on this side. Be sure to pull snug on the wire so the breads won't slide around too much.
  6. Any excess wire you have can be threaded back through the bracelet, or trimmed.
