Leafy Layers Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

An Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend in forest colors mixes perfectly with tiny leaf looks for a design inspired by the woods! Wrap this bracelet around your wrist several times for a layered look you can't resist.

Step one:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 15 inches long. Slide a sterling silver 2x2mm crimp tube onto one end, followed by the loop on a JBB sterling silver tiny leaf link. Bring the wire back through the crimp tube and crimp in place. Add seed beads from the Artbeads Woodland Beauty Designer Blend onto the strand, for a section that's approximately 10 3/4 inches long. Crimp the end to a leaf link using a crimp tube.

Step two:
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 4 inches long. Crimp the end of the wire to the leaf link at the end of the bead strand you just made using a crimp tube. Add seed beads for a section that's approximately 1 inch long. Crimp the end to a new leaf link using a crimp tube. Repeat this step four times, always attaching the new section to the last leaf link added.

Step three:
Repeat steps one and two to add more length to your bracelet, attaching any new sections to the open leaf link on your strand. Measure the length of the strand on your wrist as you go. When your bracelet wraps around the way you want it, attach the end of your last beaded strand to the leaf link on the other end of the strand using a crimp tube.
