Fringe Element Bracelet

Dress up any outfit with this elegant beaded bracelet from Katie Hacker.

 

Materials:

  • 1 1/2 yard length (137cm) - Elonga™ stretchy bead stringing cord, 0.30mm
  • 12 in. (30.5cm) length - Elonga stretchy bead stringing cord, .70mm
  • 1 - 1oz. package Amethyst seed/bugle bead mix
  • 1 - 1oz. package Amethyst 4-10mm bead mix
  • 1 - Size 10 Hard beading needle
  • G-S Hypo™ Cement
  • Designer beading scissors
  • Designer beading awl
  • Bead mat
  • Clipboard

Steps:

  1. Hold the 0.30mm and 0.70mm Elonga thread ends together. Leave 1 in. and tie them in a figure-8 knot. Place a drop of glue on the knot. Attach the 1 in. tails to a clipboard to hold the threads while you work.
     
  2. To make fringe, thread a needle onto the 0.30mm Elonga. String 1/4-1/2 in. of seed/bugle beads, an E bead or 4mm bead and another seed bead. String the needle back through the E or 4mm bead and the seed/bugle beads. Poke the needle tip into a beading mat and use your fingers to work the beads down. Use a beading awl to adjust the placement of the fringe.
     
  3. Make two fringes, then string a seed bead onto both threads. Make two more fringes, then string an 8-10mm bead onto both threads. Repeat this beading pattern until the bracelet reaches the desired length.
     
  4. After stringing the last 8-10mm bead, remove the Elonga ends from the clipboard. Tie the ends together using a surgeon's knot. Place a drop of glue on the knot. When the glue is dry, cut off any excess thread.
