Berry Bunches Bracelets Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Pairing Swarovski crystal pearls with Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blends in spiral rope bracelets creates a playful look bursting with style! Each pearl stands out among the cluster of spiraling seed beads, like a berry in a briar patch.

You will be making a spiral stitch to create these bracelets. Please watch our Spiral Stitch Mini Tutorial with Cynthia Kimura for detailed instructions on how to complete this stitch.

Purple Bracelet


Step one:
Start the stitch with four seed beads from the Monet's Garden 8/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend as the core beads. Add two seed beads, a Swarovski 5mm Iridescent Purple crystal round pearl and two more seed beads to the thread. Go back through the four core beads.

Step two:
Add one seed bead to the thread as part of the core. Repeat the pattern of two seed beads, a bicone and two seed beads. Then, counting down from the single bead added to the core, bring your needle up through four core seed beads. Repeat this step until the bracelet is the desired length.

Step three:
Weave your needle into the last spirals and the core of the bracelet several times, then bring it out through the top of the bracelet. Add two seed beads, followed by half of the 13mm silver-plated studded round magnetic clasp and two more seed beads. Bring your thread back down through the body of the bracelet, weaving through the bracelet and back through the loop several times to strengthen it. Repeat this step for the other end of the bracelet. Weave your thread through the bracelet to secure the thread in place and trim.

Blue and Green Bracelet


Step one:
Repeat steps one through three from the previous bracelet to create this bracelet. This time you will be using the Blue Lagoon 8/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend, Swarovski 5mm Petrol round pearls and the JBB gold-plated pewter flower toggle clasp.
