Spiraling Splendor Bracelets Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
The Cellini spiral stitch creates a dazzling effect in these bracelets. Seed beads of different colors and sizes create a spiraling effect that can't be beat! The colors are perfectly matched thanks to the use of Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blends. Follow the instructions below to learn how to make Cellini spiral bracelets of your own.
Step one: Choose the different sizes and colors of beads you want to use to create your bracelet. For our bronze and gold bracelet, we used colors in the Warm Metals 11/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend, along with Miyuki 8/0 round seed beads in Duracoat galvanized dark berry and TOHO 15/0 bead rounds in bronze. For the teal, purple and gold bracelet we used colors in the Far Far Away 11/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend, along with Miyuki 8/0 round seed beads in Duracoat galvanized sea foam and Miyuki 11/0 galvanized light gold Delicas.
Step two: The Cellini spiral stitch is actually tubular peyote that utilizes different sizes of beads to create the spiral effect. Watch this Mini Tutorial video to learn how to create the stitch for your bracelets. Sort your seed beads by color and size and follow the pattern Cynthia uses in the video. Keep stitching until your bracelet is the desired length.
Step three: If you run out of thread in the middle of your project, take a look at this Mini Tutorial to learn how to add in more thread. Once you reach the end of your bracelet, refer to the Cellini Spiral Stitch Mini Tutorial to learn how to sew the two ends of the bracelet together to finish your bracelet.
