Frozen Pond Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Icy colors from an Artbeads Designer Blend come together in this right angle weave design to create a glistening look of a Frozen Pond. The wintery blue colors and brilliant sparkle will glide across your wrist in the most fashionable way!

Step one:
Using a length of FireLine and a beading a needle, add the following beads to the thread:
  • One Miyuki 15/0 round seed bead in Duracoat galvanized silver
  • One bicone from the Swarovski 4mm Crystal Mix Sapphire Ice Designer Blends (you will need two Blends to complete this bracelet)
  • Two seed beads
  • One pearl from the Designer Blend
  • Two seed beads
  • One bicone
  • Two seed beads
  • One bicone
  • One seed bead
Make a loop with these beads by bringing the needle back through the first seed bead. You are going to create a right angle weave (RAW). See our Mini Tutorial Video for more help with this technique, as well as this PDF Diagram. Keep in mind that one seed bead, one Swarovski bead, and one seed bead count as one bead in the weave. Continue through the beads in the loop until you pass through the seed bead at the end of the pearl.

Step two:
Now, add the following beads to your thread:
  • One seed bead
  • One bicone
  • Two seed beads
  • One bicone
  • Two seed beads
  • One bicone
  • One seed bead
Pass through the existing section of seed bead, pearl, and 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 seed bead after the middle bicone in the loop.

Step three:
Add the following beads to your thread:
  • One seed bead
  • One bicone
  • Two seed beads
  • One pearl
  • Two seed beads
  • One bicone
  • One seed bead
Pass through the existing section of seed bead, middle bicone, and seed bead from the previous loop to make another loop. Go through the beads of this loop until you are exiting out of the seed bead after the pearl in the loop. Repeat steps two and three until your row is the desired length for a bracelet, keeping in mind the clasp will add about one inch of length.

Step four:
Add another row of right angle weave to your bracelet, referring to steps 6-9 of the PDF diagram.

Step five:
When you've finished your second row, make sure your thread is exiting out of one of the seed beads at the center of the end of the two rows. This is where you will add your clasp. Add three seed beads to the thread, followed by the loop component of the JBB sterling silver 16mm spiral toggle clasp. Add three more seed beads and bring your thread back down through the other seed bead at the center of the end of the rows. Go through the corresponding loop and back up through the seed beads and clasp to reinforce. Repeat to strengthen your clasp. Finish your thread.

Step six:
Start a new thread on the other end of your bracelet. Repeat step five to add the bar component of your clasp, adjusting the amount of seed beads on each side of the bar to make sure it fits through the loop. We used six seed beads on either side of the bar.
