Bracelet with Celestial Crystal® Beads and Delica® Seed Beads

STEP 1
Using wire nippers, cut 3 - 4 yards of FireLine. Thread a needle onto the end first off the spool.

Double the remaining thread so it's comfortable to work with, but don't actually use the thread doubled--keep a section of it single at all times.

  • Two gold Delica beads
  • One Celestial Crystal emerald green bicone
  • Two gold Delica beads

Pass the needle back through the following beads:
  • One Celestial Crystal red AB round bead

  • One Celestial Crystal red round bead.
Repeat Steps 3 - 4 creating the amount of circles you need for the length of your bracelet. The bracelet shown is 20 circles long and measures approximately 7-1/2 inches with the clasp (which is added later).

On the last circle, pass the thread through until you exit the Celestial Crystal green disc bead. This will be where the second row begins. Depending on how many circles you made, you may be coming out from the left- or the right-hand side of the disc bead. The following instructions are for exiting the right-hand side.
STEP 5
Thread on the following beads:
  • Two gold Delica beads
  • One Celestial Crystal emerald green AB round bead
  • Two gold Delica beads
  • One Celestial Crystal green disc bead
  • Two gold Delica beads
  • One Celestial Crystal emerald green AB round bead

  • Two gold Delica beads
  • One Celestial Crystal emerald green AB round bead
  • Two gold Delica beads
  • One Celestial Crystal green disc bead
  • Two gold Delica beads
  • One Celestial Crystal emerald green AB round bead
STEP 6
Thread on two gold Delica beads, pass the needle through the Celestial Crystal green disc bead from the next to last circle in the previous row. Thread on:
  • Two gold Delica beads
  • One Celestial Crystal emerald green AB round bead
  • Two gold Delica beads
  • One Celestial Crystal green disc bead
  • Two gold Delica beads.
Pass the needle through the emerald green AB round bead from the previous circle to complete the new circle then continue through the following:
  • Two gold Delica beads
  • One Celestial Crystal green disc bead
  • Two gold Delica beads
  • One Celestial Crystal emerald green AB round bead
Continue the pattern adding the appropriate beads to complete each circle, utilizing the beads from the previous row as well as the preceding circle, accordingly, until the second row is as long as the first row.
STEP 7
Repeat Steps 5 - 6 to complete the third row, adding the appropriate beads to complete each circle, utilizing the beads from the previous row as well as the preceding circle, accordingly, until the third row is as long as the second row.
STEP 8
Repeat Step 7 to complete the fourth row, adding the appropriate beads to complete each circle, matching the first row, and utilizing the beads from the previous row as well as the preceding circle, accordingly, until the fourth row is as long as the third row.
STEP 9
Weave the thread through the last circle until it exits the red AB bead on one end, toward the center of the bracelet. Thread on five gold Delica beads, then pass the thread through the green AB round bead. Thread on five gold Delica beads, then pass the thread through the next green AB round bead. Thread on five gold Delica beads, then pass the thread through the red AB bead on the end.
STEP 10
Weave your thread through the circles, working until the thread exits the red AB bead on the end, in the opposite direction from when you connected the five Delica beads in Step 9. Pass the thread through the first three (of the five) Delica beads.

Thread on two Delica beads, an emerald green bicone bead and two Delica beads. Pass the thread through the third bead (of the five) added between the two green AB rounds in Step 9. Thread on two Delica beads, an emerald green bicone bead and two Delica beads. Pass the thread through the last three (of the five) Delica beads between the red AB round and the green AB round.
STEP 11
Weave the thread so it exits one of the two emerald green bicone beads added in Step 10. Thread on two Delica beads, one end loop on one half of the clasp and two Delica beads. Pass the needle back through the beads to strengthen.

Weave the thread so it exits the center Delica bead between the two emerald green bicone beads. Thread on two Delica beads, the center loop on the clasp and two Delica beads. Pass the needle back through the beads to strengthen.

Weave the thread through the beads so it exits the emerald green bicone bead heading toward the middle row of the bracelet (rather than out to the edge). Thread on two Delica beads, the other end loop on the clasp and two Delica beads. Pass the needle back through the beads to strengthen.

Once the clasp is secure, weave the thread through a few circles, doubling back when possible to create a secure finish. Add a half-hitch knot. Pass through a few more circles and add another half-hitch knot. Continue until the thread is too short. Trim the end.

Repeat Steps 9 - 11 to add the second half of the clasp to the other end of the bracelet.
