Bracelet and Earring Set with Miyuki Beads, Seed Beads and TierraCast Links

Bracelet

STEP 1
Cut a 6-foot length of thread.

Thread a needle onto one end, almost doubling the thread but leaving a tail so you are only working with one thread.

Note: It may be necessary to cut additional lengths of thread. If you are nearing the end of your thread, weave the needle through 5-6 adjacent beads to secure the thread then trim excess thread. Thread the needle onto a new length of thread then pass the needle through 5-6 beads, exiting the bead where you left off then continue beading.

Starting the End

STEP 2
Pass the beading needle through one hole on the 2-hole side of an oasis link. Pick up two metallic rainbow green #15 rounds, one dark orange 5x2.3mm half Tila® and two metallic rainbow green #11 rounds then pass the needle through the second hole of the link.

Pass the beading needle through one hole on the 2-hole side of an oasis link. Pick up two metallic rainbow green #15 rounds, one brown 5x2.3mm half Tila and two metallic rainbow green #11 rounds then pass the needle through the second hole of the link.

STEP 5

Repeat Step 2 to secure the opposite end using oasis links.

Trim excess thread.

Adding the Fringe

STEP 6
Thread the beading needle onto a new length of thread. Pass the needle through 5-6 beads, exiting the matte metallic patina iris half Tila on one end of the bracelet (through the hole closest to end).

Pick up three metallic rainbow green #15 rounds then pass the needle back through the second hole of the half Tila. Pass the needle through the first hole of the next matte metallic patina iris half Tila along the same edge then pick up three more metallic rainbow green #15 rounds.

Repeat this pattern to add fringe along the edge.
STEP 7
After adding the last fringe to the first edge, pass the needle through the row to the opposite side, exiting the hole of the half Tila closest to the links.

Repeat Step 6 to add fringe to the second edge. Pass the needle through a few adjacent beads to secure then trim excess thread.

Adding the Clasp

STEP 8
Pass one jump ring through one loop of half of the slide lock clasp and one oasis link then close. Repeat to attach the second loop of the clasp to the second oasis link on one end.

Repeat to attach the second half of the clasp to the opposite end to finish the bracelet.

Earrings

Thread a beading needle, almost doubling the length but leaving a tail so you are only working with one thread.
STEP 2

  • One brown half Tila

Pass the needle through the first set of #11 round and half Tila then pull tight, forming a circle.
STEP 3
Pass the needle back through the top hole of the current half Tila in the opposite direction then pick up two matte metallic dark green #11 rounds.

Pass the needle through the top hole of the next brown half Tila then pick up two more #11 rounds.
