Royal Decree Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Regal colors come to life in this tubular herringbone bracelet. Cynthia used beads from an Artbeads Designer Blend featuring Swarovski Crystal to achieve the perfect color palette for her project. You can see more ideas for using Artbeads Designer Blends in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Start a tubular herringbone stitch rope with four rows of Miyuki 8/0 round seed beads in galvanized gold. Each row will be six beads around. For help with the tubular herringbone stitch, please see our video tutorial.

Step two:
Continue the tubular herringbone stitch following this pattern:
  • One row of Crystal Metallic Sunshine bicones from the Swarovski 3mm Crystal Mix Cleopatra Gold Designer Blend
  • One row of gold pearls
  • One row of Pacific Opal bicones
  • One row of gold pearls
  • One row of Crystal Metallic Sunshine bicones
  • One row of Miyuki seed beads
Continue this pattern until your bracelet is the desired length, keeping in mind that you will add four rows of Miyuki seed beads at the end and that the bracelet should be wide enough to slip over your hand.

Step three:
When your bracelet is the desired length, finish with four rows of Miyuki seed beads. Stitch the ends of the bracelet together. Weave your thread back into the beads and then trim to finish your thread.
