Ellinor Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

The colors of the seed beads in this bracelet dance together, creating a cheerful display of shining style. The perfectly-coordinated colors come from an Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend. With the colors already picked out for you, you can concentrate on learning the Cubic Right Angle Weave when making this bracelet!

Step one:
Follow the instructions for creating a cubic right angle weave (CRAW) stitch in this Handy Tip. You can also watch this Mini Tutorial Video to see the technique in action. Make sure to start with a 12-inch tail, as we will be adding 11/0 seed beads to the tail later.

Step two:
Weave a rope of the CRAW stitch that is approximately 6 1/4 inches long using the Patagonia 8/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend. We added our seed beads in a random fashion.

Step three:
At the end of your bracelet, add a row of CRAW using the TOHO 11/0 bead rounds in transparent medium amethyst. Insert the eye of a TierraCast copper 2-inch 21 gauge eye pin into the center of this row, then weave another row of 11/0 seed beads around it. Weave the tail of the thread through the eye of the eye pin, followed by a bead, then back through eye pin and then back through a bead until the eye pin is secure. Tie off the tail.

Step four:
Slide a 6mm antique copper-plated pewter filigree end cap onto the eye pin, followed by a Patagonia bead. Make a wrapped loop at the bead. For help creating a wrapped loop, please see our Handy Tip.

Step five:
Repeat steps three and four on the other end of the bracelet. Attach part of the TierraCast antique copper leaf clasp set to each end of the bracelet using a 4.5mm antique copper-plated 21 gauge open jump ring. Learn how to properly open and close jump rings with this Handy Tip Video.
