Marceline Bracelets Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Show off a sweet display of colors using beads from the Artbeads Designer Series! Cynthia chose Seed Bead Blends and Blends featuring Swarovski crystal pearls and bicones to complete her bracelets. The colors are sweet and nostalgic, but you could choose any colors you wish. Learn how to make these bracelets and start incorporating the flat spiral stitch into your designs!

You will be making a flat spiral stitch to create these bracelets. Please watch our Flat Spiral Stitch Mini Tutorial with Cynthia Kimura for detailed instructions on how to complete this stitch.

Purple and Pink Bracelet


Step one:
Use Swarovski 6mm round pearls in Powder Rose for the beads in the center of the stitch. Use three seed beads from the Punchy Purples 8/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend, one bicone from the Swarovski 4mm Bicone Peaceful Purple Designer Blend and three more Punchy Purples seed beads to frame the center beads on each side. Continue the stitch until your bracelet is the desired length.

Step two:
Weave your needle into the body of the bracelet several times and make sure it is exiting out of a pearl on the end of your bracelet. Add three seed beads to the thread, followed by half of the 18mm Beadelle silver-plated crystal pavé round toggle clasp and three more seed beads. Bring your thread back down through the pearl, then weave through the bracelet and back through the loop several times to strengthen it. Repeat this step on the other end of the bracelet. Adjust the amount of seed beads in the loops to make the bracelet as long as you need it. Weave your thread through the bracelet to secure the thread in place and trim.

Blue Bracelet


Step one:
Use the Swarvsoki 4mm Crystal Pearl Lose the Blues Designer Blend for the beads in the center of the stitch. Use three seed beads from the Blue Pastel 11/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend, one bicone from the Swarovski 3mm Bicone Blue Jeans Designer Blend and three more seed beads to frame the center beads on each side. Continue the stitch until your bracelet is the desired length.

Step three:
Weave your needle into the body of the bracelet several times and make sure it is exiting out of a pearl on the end of your bracelet. Add 11 seed beads to the thread, followed by half of the TierraCast 1/2-inch antique silver-plated pewter Anna's toggle and clasp set and 11 more seed beads. Bring your thread back down through the pearl, then weave through the bracelet and back through the loop several times to strengthen it. Repeat this step on the other end of the bracelet. Adjust the amount of seed beads in the loops to make the bracelet as long as you need it. Weave your thread through the bracelet to secure the thread in place and trim.

White, Pink and Purple Bracelet


Step one:
Use the Swarovski 6mm Crystal Pearl Southern Belle Designer Blend for the beads in the center of the stitch. Use 10 seed beads from the Classic Wedding 11/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend to frame the center beads on each side. Continue the stitch until your bracelet is the desired length.

Step two:
Weave your needle into the body of the bracelet several times and make sure it is exiting out of a pearl on the end of your bracelet. Add seven seed beads to the thread, followed by the bar component of the TierraCast antique rhodium heirloom clasp set and seven more seed beads. Bring your thread back down through the pearl, then weave through the bracelet and back through the loop several times to strengthen it. Repeat this step on the other end of the bracelet. Adjust the amount of seed beads in the loops to make the bracelet as long as you need it. Weave your thread through the bracelet to secure the thread in place and trim.
