Inca Sun Bracelet
Designer: Julie Bean
Miyuki delica beads in bold dark purple and lustrous metallic earth batik have been bead woven into a sun-inspired pattern for this pretty bracelet.
This pattern makes an approximately 7.5" bracelet. If you want a smaller or larger bracelet, make fewer or additional "suns".
- This bracelet is made up of 12 individual "suns" all linked together. To see how to make each of these, please watch the tutorial: How to Bead Weave a Decorative Edge Around a Spacer Bead with Loop.
Following what you learned in the video, make 12 of these using Fireline beading thread (25" for each sun), an antique copper plated beaded loop heishe bead as the center and then Miyuki 11/0 delicas in silver lined dark purple and metallic earth batik luster for the bead weaving.
Connect each of the above beaded segments together using a 4mm antique copper jump ring. Link them by placing the jump ring between the loop on one unit and the middle dark purple beaded arch on another unit. See photo.
When all 12 are connected, take a jump ring and link it to the end loop. Link onto this same jump ring the square loop part of your twisty toggle clasp. Close the jump ring. On the other side of your bracelet open and link another jump ring to the middle dark purple beaded arch as well as the jump ring that comes with your toggle clasp set. Close the jump ring. If your toggle bar is not already attached to this larger jump ring that came with the set, open the jump ring now and link the toggle bar to it. Close the jump ring.
Try a different color palette for this pattern.
When substituting in items, pay attention to sizes and styles to make sure all your pieces will fit together.

Tip: Check package quantities for each component. You may have extra material to make more than one finished project, or will have leftovers for other projects. In some cases, adding on just one more package of a component may be all you need to make multiple pieces.
