Pixie Dust Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Ethereal colors create a pixilated look in this right angle weave bracelet. The right angle weave technique allows you to create unique patterns in your jewelry designs. Here, Czech glass pearl beads create blossoms of beautiful color in the pattern. Learn how to make this bracelet and then switch up the colors to suit your style!

Step one:
Using the 3mm Czech glass pearl beads in matte brown sugar, matte teal and matte steel blue, Create a right angle weave bracelet following the pattern in This PDF Diagram. For help with the right angle weave technique, please take a look at this Mini Tutorial video, as well as this Right Angle Weave PDF Diagram. Continue the technique until the bracelet is the desired length. Ours is 6 1/2 inches long. Keep in mind the button closure and loop will add about an inch of length to the completed bracelet.

Step two:
Position your thread so that it is exiting out of one of the 3mm pearl beads on the edge of your bracelet, toward the farthest end of the bracelet. Add a 2mm Czech glass pearl bead in matte steel blue to the thread, then bring your needle through the next 3mm pearl bead on the edge of the bracelet.

Step three:
Add another 2mm pearl bead to the thread. If the 2mm bead will be above a 3mm steel blue bead in the bracelet, make sure you add a 2mm Czech glass pearl bead in matte teal to the thread. Go through the next 3mm pearl bead on the edge of the bracelet. Repeat this step until you reach the end of the bracelet, then repeat steps two and three for the other edge of the bracelet. Attach the TierraCast antique silver-plated pewter Czech rosette button between the two 3mm pearl beads on the end of the bracelet. Loop the thread around the button shank several times for a strong hold.

Step four:
Add a 2mm matte teal bead between the two 3mm pearl beads on the other end of your bracelet. Weave through the beads until your needle is exiting out of the 2mm bead again. Add a 2mm matte teal bead to the thread, followed by 18 2mm matte steel beads. Bring your needle back down through the first matte steel bead to form a loop, then add a matte teal bead to the thread and go back through the matte teal bead between the 3mm pearl beads on the end of the bracelet. Make sure your loop fits the button on the other end of the bracelet and then bring your thread back through the beads in the loop to strengthen it. When your bracelet is complete, secure and trim your thread.
