Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

  1. Before you begin, watch the instructional video: How to Cover a Channel Bangle with Bead Weaving.
  2. Using a size 12 beading needle and .006" smoke grey Fireline, weave a strip of even count flat peyote 18 beads wide with size 11/0 tuxedo mix of Delica beads.
  3. As demonstrated in the video, continue to weave until your piece is just short of reaching all the way around the channel of your bangle.
  4. End your row so that your first and last row match up and fit together, with just about 1/8" or slightly less of a gap.
  5. Zip your ends together as demonstrated in the video. Tie off and weave in your threads.
