Shimmering Winds Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Our Swarovski Designer Blends are a great option for bead weaving! When used in a Right Angle Weave (or RAW), the small bicone shapes fit perfectly together, creating a luxurious and sparkling look. The glittering colors of the Tropical Breeze Designer Blend create a look of Shimmering Winds you won't be able to resist!

Step one:
Stitch the beads from the Swarovski 5328 3mm Bicone Tropical Breeze Designer Blend together using the Right Angle Weave technique. For help with this technique, see the Right Angle Weave Mini Tutorial Video with Leslie Rogalski, as well as this PDF Diagram. Follow steps 1-5 on the diagram to make the first row of your Right Angle Weave. Make this row as long as you need to fit around your wrist. Keep in mind the length of the clasp. If you want to make the bracelet longer, you can add jump rings to the loops of the clasp or purchase another tube of the Tropical Breeze Designer Blend to make the weave longer.

Step two:
Add four more rows of Right Angle Weave to your bracelet, referring to steps 6-9 of the PDF diagram.

Step three:
Weave your thread through the bracelet so that it is exiting out of the second bicone on one end of the bracelet. Add four TOHO 15/0 transparent teal AB bead rounds to the thread, followed by the end ring of one half of the JBB antique silver plated brass multi-strand 3 ring hook and eye clasp. Add four more TOHOs to the thread, then bring your needle through the other side of the bicone. Pass through the TOHOs and the bicone a few times to strengthen the loop.

Step four:
Weave your thread so that it is exiting out of the center bicone on the end of the bracelet. Add four TOHOs to the thread then bring your needle through the middle ring of the clasp. Add four more TOHOs and bring your needle through the other side of the bicone. Pass through the TOHOs and the bicone a few times to strengthen the loop.

Step five:
Weave your thread so that it is exiting out of the next bicone on the end of the bracelet. Add four TOHOs to the thread, then bring your needle through the last ring of the clasp. Add four more TOHOs and bring your needle through the other side of the bicone. Pass through the TOHOs and the bicone a few times to strengthen the loop.

Step six:
Start a new thread on the other end of the bracelet and repeat steps 3-5 to attach the other half of the clasp to the bracelet.
