There’s no way I was going to forget my girlfriends at Christmas. They are the three sweetest ladies ever. I decided to make them spiral beaded bracelets. And while I was at it, I made myself a red and green one for the Holiday season.
Making them is really easy. I’ll show you how. First I used size 8 beads for the center spine, and then I used size 3 Czech beads and size 15 beads for the spiral. I started out by threading four of the size 8 beads onto my thread.
Then I put one size 15, two size 3’s, and one size 15 on my needle like the picture below:
Then I put my needle through the original four size 8 beads.
And pulled tight. It should look like the photo below.
We’ll call this next step “A”: Thread one size 8 bead. Pull it all the way down to the circle of beads just created.
We’ll call this step “B”: add one size 15 bead, two size 3 beads, and one size 15 bead onto the needle.
We’ll call this step “C”. Pass the needle through the top four size 8 beads, and pull tight.
Just repeat steps “A”, “B”, and “C” over and over until the length is 1/2 inch longer than the circumference of the wrist. Then you sew on whatever closures you want to use.
I hope my friends will like them. I love giving gifts, especially ones that I create. I have them all ready in their boxes. I can’t wait to see their reaction.
