Ponderosa Pines Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

The tubular herringbone stitch is given a rustic look in this Ponderosa Pines bracelet. An Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend provides the perfect combination of earthy colors, while Rizo beads bring new pine needle dimension to the design. This bracelet is easy to make and looks fabulous, so get started today!

Step one:
Start a tubular herringbone stitch rope with three rows of the Miyuki 11/0 metallic AB matte dark green/teal Delica seed beads. Each row will be eight beads around. For help with the tubular herringbone stitch, please see our Mini Tutorial video. Then, continue the stitch with 32 rows of the Swanky Pine 11/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend. If you would like to make your bracelet longer or shorter, you will need to adjust the amount of rows you create.

Step two:
Continue the tubular herringbone stitch following this pattern:
  • One row of Swarovski 3mm faceted round beads in Crystal Lilac Shadow
  • Three rows of Rizo 2.5x6mm Czech glass beads in peridot vitrail
  • One row of Crystal Lilac Shadow beads
  • Five rows of Swanky Pine seed beads
Repeat this pattern two times. Add 27 rows of Swanky Pine seed beads to the end of the bracelet, to match up with the rows of seed beads at the start of the bracelet. Then, finish with three rows of Miyuki seed beads.

Step three:
Glue the TierraCast 6mm brass oxide pagoda cord end caps onto each end of the bracelet using 5-minute two-part epoxy. Allow to dry.

Step four:
Attach an 8mm antique brass-plated open jump ring to one of the end caps. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see our Handy Tip Video. Repeat for the other end of the bracelet, then attach the TierraCast brass oxide pewter classic S hook clasp to one of the jump rings.
