Twinkle Twinkle Bracelet

PROJECT B144
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
Oh, the sparkle! This stunner uses Right Angle Weave. It is made entirely with Crystal AB 2x Swarovski bicones with sterling silver accents for extra shimmer and shine, but you can use any color of Swarovski
Instructions
Note: Although this bracelet is made using flat Right Angle Weave, by weaving tiny silver beads in between the rows, the weave "puckers" and pulls, thereby giving the bracelet a spiral effect. If you prefer the bracelet to be flat, omit the step of adding the 2mm sterling silver beads.
  1. If you are not already familiar with Right Angle Weave, please watch the How to Do a Flat Right Angle Weave - Single Needle video before proceeding with this project. Begin by single- threading approximately two yards of Fireline onto your needle.
  2. Using the 4mm crystal AB 2x bicones, create two rows of Right Angle Weave which are approximately five and a half inches in length. This is the body of your bracelet.
  3. Bringing your thread around to the outside of one of your rows, begin to add small silver beads between each of the 4mm bicones. Remember to pull tight, so that the silver beads make space between each bicone, eventually causing it to distort and curl.
  4. After you finish adding the silver beads on the outside row, bring your thread to the center of the two rows, and add a silver bead between each of those bicones as well, pulling tight as you go.
  5. Finally, repeat this action on the other outside row. Your bracelet should now have a spiral look to it.
  6. Bring your thread up through the center of the bracelet and add a 6mm bicone at one end.
  7. Guide your thread through a sterling silver thread guard and back down through the 6mm bicone bead.
  8. Thread your needle down the center of the two rows and back out at the opposite end of the bracelet. Add another 6mm bicone and repeat the previous step.
  9. Tie off your thread and weave in the remainder.
  10. Open two sterling silver jump rings and use them to connect the toggle clasp to both ends of your bracelet.
