Fields of Clover Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Right angle weave creates a beaded field of clovers in this cheerful bracelet design. It's a perfect complement to St. Patrick's Day style, thanks to the lucky green fire-polished beads interspersed with a fortune of silver and gold seed beads. The claddagh at the center of the bracelet adds Irish flair. You'll love wearing this delicate bracelet as a symbol of luck on any day!

Step one:
Using a length of KO beading thread in a light green color, stitch your thread to one loop of the sterling silver heart in hands round link. Add one Miyuki 15/0 round seed bead in Duracoat galvanized gold to the thread. Then add the following beads to the thread:
  • One 2mm fire-polished bead in olivine
  • One TOHO 15/0 Round in galvanized aluminum
  • One 2mm fire-polished bead in olive mauve polychrome
  • One gold seed bead
  • One dark green fire-polished bead
  • One silver seed bead
  • One light green fire-polished bead


Step two:
Make a loop with these beads by bringing the needle back around through the first gold seed bead. You are going to create a right angle weave. See our Mini Tutorial Video for more help with this technique. Continue through the beads in the loop until you pass through the other gold seed bead.

Step three:
Now, add the following beads to your thread:
  • One dark green fire-polished bead
  • One silver seed bead
  • One light green fire-polished bead
  • One gold seed bead
  • One light green fire-polished bead
  • One silver seed bead
  • One dark green fire-polished bead
Pass through the existing gold seed bead from the previous loop to make another loop. Then, go through the beads of this loop until you are exiting out of the next gold seed bead.

Step four:
Continue alternating these two patterns to the desired length. Our bracelet is a size 6 1/2, so this side of the bracelet has ten loop patterns. Sew the end of the thread onto a sterling silver 3mm fine closed jump ring. Weave the tails of your thread into the body of the bracelet, knotting here and there to secure. Trim the thread. Attach the 925/10 silver-filled 5mm 18 gauge open jump ring to the 3mm closed jump ring. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see our Handy Tip Video.

Step five:
Repeat these steps on the other side of the heart in hands link. On this end of the bracelet, attach the 5mm sterling spring ring to the 3mm jump ring using a sterling silver 4.30mm open jump ring.
