  • a grey purple 6mm glass pearl
  • a size 11 Miyuki delica seed bead
  • a grey purple 6mm glass pearl
  • a size 11 Miyuki delica seed bead
  • a grey purple 6mm glass pearl
  • a size 11 Miyuki delica seed bead

Bring your thread back through the first 3 glass pearls and 2 Miyuki delica's treaded on in step 2.

Repeat this step 2 another 13 times until your have 46 grey purple 6mm glass pearls.

STEP 3

Make sure your thread is pulled tight, then thread on:

  • 3 x 2.5mm Crystal Clear Swarovski Crystal bicones

Thread on your diamante clasp through the loop on the side.

Bring your thread back through the last 2.5mm Crystal Clear Swarovski Crystal Bicone and thread another 2.5mm Crystal Clear Swarovski Crystal bicones on.

Pull your thread tight, so that your 2.5mm crystal clear Swarovski crystal bicones are up close to the last 6mm glass pearl. Go back through the last glass pearl that is closest to the clasp and then thread on:

  • 3 x size 11 Miyuki delica seed beads
  • 1 x Fuchsia 4mm Swarovski Crystal Bicone
  • 3 x size 11 Miyuki delica seed beads

Bring the beads diagonal across the pearls and go through the next glass pearl bead in the middle. Repeat this process until you have 15 fuchsia 4mm Swarovski crystal bicones threaded diagonally across your pearls.

Next thread on 3 x 2.5mm Crystal Clear Swarovski Crystal bicones, followed by the diamante clasp. Bring your thread back through the last 2.5mm Crystal Clear Swarovski Crystal Bicone you threaded on earlier and thread another 2 x 2.5mm Crystal Clear Swarovski Crystal bicones on.

Bring your thread back through the closest glass pearl, pulling tightly to make sure their are no gaps between your beads. You should now be at the end of the bracelet that has the 5cm tail. Tie a knot using your tail and the thread attached to your needle, making sure that all your beads are nice and close. Trim off the excess thread (what used to be the 5cm tail).

Going along one side of your bracelet, thread your needle back through the first Miyuki delica bead, the glass pearl and the next Miyuki delica seed bead. Next thread on a 2.5mm Crystal Clear Swarovski Bicone and go thought the next Miyuki delica seed bead, glass pearl, Miyuki delica etc.... until you reach the last Miyuki delica on the left hand side.

Now pass your thread through the glass pearl closest to the clasp and repeat the same process now the right hand side of your bracelet. Once you reach the last Miyuki delica on the right hand side, bring your thread back though the glass pearl closest to the clasp. Pull your thread to make sure that it is tight and their are no gaps in between the beads. Once it's all tight, tie an overhand knot between the glass pearl and delica bead. Repeat this knot 2 or 3 times and cut off any extra thread. Your bracelet is now ready to wear!
