Oct. 28th, 2009 @ 10:00 pm [Tutorial] Crystal Bracelet #17
Tutorial : Crystal Bracelet #17
Level : Intermediate








Equipment :
- Swarovski Crystal 4 mm.
- Seed bead
- Jumprings
- Clasp
- Stopper
- Bead tip
- Pliers
- Nylon thread no. 25

The colors I used here are Indian Sapphire and Montana. The seed bead is clear with silver lined.

1.



Cut two nylon threads, 100 cm. each. Put the threads into stopper bead and then to bead tip. Crush the stopper, then bead tip with pliers. I'm sorry I don't take the picture of these steps. But you can see my past tutorial how I start the bracelet by bead tip.

Now you have four lines to work with. Pick up any two thread and add three seed beads. Cross those threads together at the new seed bead (red arrow).

2.



Add three seed beads to the two remaining threads. Cross both threads at the new seed bead (red arrow).

3.



Pick up two threads (one from each side) that point to the same direction. Add one new crystal to each thread and cross them at a new seed bead (red arrow).

4.



Add two seed beads to both below threads. Cross both threads at a new seed bead (red arrow).

5.



At the two threads on the left side, add two seed beads to the below thread. Add one crystal to the other thread. Cross both threads at the seed bead (red arrow).

6.



We do the same to the right side. Add two seed beads to the below threads and one crystal to the above. Cross them at the seed bead (red arrow).

7.



This step is the same as step 3.  Add one new crystal to each thread and cross them at a new seed bead (red arrow).

8.



This step is the same as step 4. Add two seed beads to both below threads. Cross both threads at a new seed bead (red arrow).

9.



Same as step 5. At the two threads on the left side, add two seed beads to the below thread. Add one crystal to the other thread. Cross both threads at the seed bead (red arrow).

10.



Same as step 6. At the right side, add two seed beads to the below threads and one crystal to the above. Cross them at the seed bead (red arrow).

11.



Repeat step 3 - 10.

You may notice that this bracelet is a smaller version of this bracelet.

12.



End the bracelet with three seed beads to each thread. Put the threads into bead tip and stopper bead. Crush the stopper and bead tip with pliers. Remove the remaining threads.

13.



You can stop here if you want. Add jumprings and clasp. You get the bracelet.

14.



If you want to continue, then, cut the new thread around 70 cm. Put the thread into the seed bead at the red arrow.

15.



Add one seed bead, one crystal and one seed bead to the above thread. Put the thread upwards at the seed bead (red arrow).

16.



Repeat step 15 to the rest of the bracelet. Don't forget to put the thread in upward direction.

Do the same for the other side. You can use the below thread in step 15. Put the thread into the seed beads at the base. String it to the other side and continue beading step 15 to the rest of the bracelet.



I hope you like it. Happy beading!
