Lilac Delight Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The pellet beads featured in this bracelet create an interesting pattern when used with Swarovski pearls in the right angle weave. Beads from the Artbeads Designer Series add the perfect splash of complementary colors.

Step one:
This bracelet is made using the right angle weave. Learn this stitch in this Mini Tutorial video. You can also follow this helpful PDF diagram.

Step two:
Start the stitch by stringing on a pearl from the Swarovski 4mm Crystal Pearl Sweet Nothings Designer Blend, a Preciosa Czech glass 4x6mm white lilac luster pellet bead, another pearl and then another pellet bead. Create the bracelet so that it is five loops wide. So, it should be five pellet beads wide and six pearls wide. Continue the bracelet until it is the desired length.

Step three:
Bring your thread so that it is exiting out of an end pellet bead on the edge of the bracelet. Add five seed beads from the Punchy Purples 8/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend to the thread. Skip over the pearl next to the pellet bead and go through the next pearl on the edge of the bracelet. Add five seed beads to the thread, then skip over the next pearl and go through the pearl after that. Continue this process until you reach the other end of the bracelet. Repeat for the other edge of the bracelet.

Step four:
If you need to add thread at any point, please refer to our Finishing Off and Adding Thread for Bead Weaving Handy Tip. Bring your thread out of the last pellet bead on the end of your bracelet. Add two seed beads to the thread, then bring your thread through the end ring of the gunmetal-plated 30x10mm 5-ring magnetic tube clasp. Add two more seed beads and then go back through the pellet bead. Go back through the seed beads and pellet bead again to reinforce the loop. Repeat this process for all of the pellet beads on the end to attach all of the loops of the clasp to your bracelet. Do the same on the other end of the bracelet.
