Smoldering Fire Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

The unique Czech glass Cali beads in this bracelet feature three stringing holes, giving you fun possibilities for your beaded creations. Cheri paired the Cali beads with Druks and seed beads for a look that gleams with fiery rose gold and bold black. It's sure to put you in mind of the glowing coals of a Smoldering Fire.

Step one:
Working with a comfortable length of thread, add a stopper bead to the end of your thread. Refer to this PDF diagram for help with the thread path.

Step two:
String the center hole of a Czech glass 3x8mm black/Capri rose 3-hole Cali bead onto the thread, followed by a Czech glass 3mm Druk bead in luster opaque rose and gold topaz, as shown in the first image of the diagram. Repeat 23 times or until your bracelet is the desired length. Keep in mind the clasp will add about 1 1/2 inches of length. Add the center hole of a Cali bead to the end of your pattern, followed by two TOHO 15/0 bead rounds in copper lined crystal.

Step three:
Go back through the bottom stringing hole of the last Cali bead on your thread. Add three seed beads and then go through the bottom hole of the next Cali bead, as shown in the second image of the diagram. Repeat until you reach the end of your pattern. Add two seed beads, then go through the center hole of the last Cali bead. Go back around through the bottom hole of the Cali bead and then up through the top hole of the Cali bead. Add the bottom hole of a new Cali bead to the thread, then go through the top hole of the next Cali bead in the previous row. Repeat to add all the Cali beads in this row until you reach the end of your pattern.

Step four:
Go up through the top stringing hole of the last Cali bead added. Add the bottom hole of a new Cali bead to the thread and then go through the top hole of the next Cali bead in the previous row, as shown in the third image of the diagram. Repeat until you reach the end of the pattern.

Step five:
Add the bottom hole of a Cali bead to the thread after the last Cali bead in the previous row and then add the top hole of a new Cali bead, as shown in the third image of the diagram. This bead will be a new bead for the middle row. Go through the bottom hole of the last Cali bead added and then bring your thread through the top hole of the first Cali bead in the first row. Go through the bottom hole of the next Cali bead in the second row and then up through the top hole of the same Cali bead. Go through the bottom hole of the last Cali bead in the third row and then through the center hole of the same Cali bead.

Step six:
Add a Druk bead to the thread and go through the center hole of the next Cali bead, as shown in the fourth image of the diagram. Repeat until you reach the end of the pattern. Add two seed beads to the thread and then go up through the top hole of the last Cali bead. Add three seed beads and then go through the top hole of the next Cali bead. Repeat until you reach the end of the pattern.

Step seven:
Add two seed beads to the thread and go through the center hole of the last Cali bead, as shown in the fifth image of the diagram. Go back around through the bottom hole of the Cali bead and then through the top hole of the last Cali bead in the previous row. Add three seed beads and loop your thread around the loop component of the TierraCast black finish pewter large tapered clasp set. Go back through the seed beads and the top hole of the Cali bead in the second row. Go through the center hole of the Cali bead and add a Druk to the thread. Loop around the clasp and go back through the Druk and the center hole of the Cali bead. Go down through the bottom hole of the Cali bead. Add three seed beads to the thread and loop around the clasp several times. Go back through the seed beads and the bottom hole of the Cali bead. Go through the top hole of the Cali bead in the bottom row.

Step eight:
Go through the seed beads and the bottom holes of the Cali beads in the bottom row to reach the other end of the bracelet, as shown in the fifth image of the diagram. Go through the two seed beads at the end of the row and through the center hole of the Cali bead. Go through the top hole of the Cali bead and then the bottom row of the Cali bead in the next row. Add three seed beads and then the bottom hole of a Cali bead. Repeat and then add three more seed beads. Loop the thread around the bar component of the clasp, then go back through the seed beads and the bottom holes of the Cali beads added.

Step nine:
Go through the bottom hole of the last Cali bead in the middle row of the bracelet. Go through the center hole of the same Cali bead. Add a Druk to the thread and then go through the center hole of the next Cali bead. Repeat and then add another Druk bead. Loop around the clasp and then go back through the Druk beads and the center holes of the Cali beads.

Step ten:
Go through the center hole of the last Cali bead in the middle row of the bracelet. Go through the top hole of the same Cali bead. Add three seed beads and then go through the top hole of the next Cali bead. Repeat and then add three more seed beads. Loop around the clasp several times and go back through the seed beads and the top hole of the Cali beads.

Step eleven:
Go back through the top hole of the last Cali bead in the middle row of the bracelet Then go through the bottom hole of the last Cali bead in the top row. Go through the center hole of the same Cali bead. Go up through the two seed beads on the end of the row and through the top hole of the Cali bead. Work your thread through the top holes and seed beads of this row. Secure and trim your thread.
