Boardwalk Magic Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Crocheting with beads and wire can create a textured look everyone will love. Cynthia used Artbeads Designer Blends and Designer Wire in matching colors to decorate her crocheted bracelets. The colors are offset perfectly by the coppery findings. Create your own crochet magic and learn how to make this bracelet today!

Step one:
String approximately 20 beads from the Swarovski 4mm Crystal Pearl Metallic Magic Designer Blend onto the 26 gauge Artbeads Designer Wire in Antique Copper spool. If you want your finished bracelet to be longer, you can add more beads. Leave a four-inch tail on the wire before you begin crocheting the beads in place. Each stitch will include a bead. To learn how to crochet with wire, please see our Handy Tip. You can also watch this Mini Tutorial to see the technique in action. Leave a four-inch tail of wire and cut the strand.

Step two:
String approximately 25 beads from the Under the Boardwalk Designer Seed Bead Blend onto the wire spool. Repeat the techniques from step one to crochet the beads to the strand. Repeat this step for another strand featuring Under the Boardwalk seed beads.

Step three:
String approximately 21 beads from the Swarovski 4mm Bicone Sand Dune Designer Blend onto the wire spool. Repeat the techniques from step one to crochet the beads to the strand.

Step four:
Gather the ends of all four strands together and slide them through the 10mm antique copper-plated pewter filigree end cap. Attach half of the TierraCast antique copper large tapered clasp set to a 6mm antique copper 20 gauge open jump ring and slide it onto the four strands of wire. Once the clasp is on the strands of wire, wrap the wire strands around each other to secure the clasp in place. In order to add length to the clasp, you can use more jump rings to attach the clasp. Repeat on the other end of the bracelet.
