Sparkly Chevron Bracelet


Sparkly Chevron Bracelet

This bracelet is an adaptation of the Daisy Chain technique. I really love lots of sparkle for dressy occasions, and this kind of reminds me of a tennis bracelet.It also makes a nice strap for a necklace.







Supplies Needed
13 4 mm firepolish beads, Garnet
12 4mm firepolish beads, Crystal
hook and eye clasp
size 11 silverlined gold beads, Czecholsavkian or Japanese will work
beading thread (I use silamide, but size D nymo will work fine too)
beading needle (I use a size 12 John James short)
I've gotten asked by a couple people where to get these supplies, check Out on A Whim Beads for the supplies, they carry all of them, and the service is impeccable.
Start by threading your needle with about 2 yards of thread. Then string on 14 size 11 beads and one part of the clasp, tie a knot leaving enough thread to weave in the tail, if the hole on your clasp isnīt big enough to accomodate the beads going through it, then string 7 beads, the end of the clasp, then the other seven beads.







Bring your needle up through the 9th bead from the clasp, string on 10 beads, then bring your needle and thread up throught the 6th bead from the clasp, creating a new loop, add on a garnet 4mm bead, and bring your needle and thread up through the 4th bead of the beads added on that loop.







Repeat in pattern, one loop with a red bead, the next one white, until all 25 4 mm beads are added.







When you get to the end, string on 5 beads, opposite end of clasp, 5 more beads, tie off and weave then ends through the bead loop holding the clasp a few times.Weave in the end on the other side the same way. Reinforcing the ends where the metal clasps are, and using size D Nymo or silamide is important in bracelets because bracelets can receive so much stress.
