Instructions

You will want to measure your wrist before beginning this project. Since this is a cuff, you will want it fit somewhat snug so that it will keep its shape. Decide how large you want it to be. The clasp will add about 1/2".
  1. To begin, cut as long of a length of Wildfire white beading thread as you are comfortable working with. This project will require you to end your thread and begin a new one several times. I chose to work with 7 feet of beading thread at a time, any longer then that and it seemed too much for me. Please also watch the video: How to Tie Off and Add a New Thread in Bead Weaving. Thread your size 12 beading needle onto the thread (you might need to flatten the thread to do this, the video below will show you how).
  2. Please watch the video: How to Make a Cuff Bracelet Using Tila Beads. This video showcases this particular bracelet and how to bead weave your Tila Beads, Swarovski Crytsal bicones, 15/0 and 11/0 Miyuki Delicas together. Please follow what you learn in the video and make your bracelet. The video also showcases how to attach the clasp. Please follow the instructions to make your entire bracelet.
  3. A couple tips: do not be tempted to use a larger needle, the thinner size 12 needle will make your required multiple passes through beads easier. Start new threads but wait to go back and weave the tails of the older ones back into the beadwork until you are all done with the bracelet bead work. When you get to your desired length, tie off the thread and start a new one for the attachment of the clasp.
