SKINNY BRACELET

(copyright 2010 Deborah Roberti)

Materials (for a 7-inch bracelet, not including clasp):
• 3 yards of 6 lb. FireLine
• About 80 size 11 seed beads: I used Miyuki #457L Light Bronze.
• About 100 size 4mm bicone crystals: I used Swarovski Topaz Satin (discontinued color).
• clasp

Step 1: Thread your needle with 3 yards of Fireline.

String four bicone crystals. Leaving about a 14-inch tail for attaching one end of the clasp, tie the beads in a circle with a double knot:

Step 2: Go back around through three of the bicone crystals that you added in the last step:

Step 3: String three bicone crystals. Go around and back up through the bicone crystal that you exited at the end of the last step:

Step 4: Continue back around through two of the bicone crystals that you added in the last step (highlighted in RED):

Step 5: String three bicone crystals. Go around and back down through the bicone crystal that you exited at the end of the last step:

Step 6: Continue back around through two of the bicone crystals that you added in the last step (highlighted in RED):

Step 7: Repeat Step 3 to Step 6 until your bracelet is the length you want it, minus about a half-inch and the length of your clasp:

Step 8: At the end of your bracelet, go back across through the bicone crystal highlighted in RED:

Now you’ll add a row of seed beads in between each bicone crystal along the top of your bracelet.

Step 9: String a seed bead and go across through the bicone crystal highlighted in RED:

Step 10: String another seed bead and go across through the next bicone crystal along the top side of your bracelet (highlighted in RED):

Step 11: Repeat Step 10 until you get to the end:

Step 12: Go around through the two bicone crystals highlighted in RED:

Now you’ll add a row of seed beads in between each bicone crystal along the bottom side.

Step 13: String a seed bead and go across through the bicone crystal highlighted in RED:

Step 14: String another seed bead and go across through the next bicone crystal along the bottom side of your bracelet (highlighted in RED):

Step 15: Repeat Step 14 until you get to the end:

Step 16: Go up through the bicone crystal highlighted in RED:

Step 17: To attach one end of the clasp, string a bicone crystal and three seed beads.

Go through your clasp and then back through the last seed bead that you just strung:

Step 18: String two seed beads and a bicone crystal. Go up through the bicone crystal highlighted in RED:

Step 19: Go back around through the bicone crystal, the seed beads, through the clasp, the seed beads and the bicone crystal highlighted in RED:

Step 20: String a seed bead. Go around through the three bicone crystals highlighted in RED:

Step 21: String a seed bead. Go back around through the bicone crystal, the seed beads, through the clasp, the seed beads and the bicone crystal highlighted in RED:

Weave back into the bracelet, knot in several places and cut your thread.

Step 22: To attach the clasp to the other side of the bracelet, thread your needle with the tail from Step 1.
Go up through the bicone crystal highlighted in RED:

Repeat Step 17 to Step 21.
