Blue 'lucite' Bracelet

This is a very simple bracelet to make. Start by adding enough size 11 seed beads to fit comfortably around your wrist approx 110 Add your clasp. Now come back through the first 3 seed beads, add 3 seed beads your 'lucite' bead a seed bead. carry on along the bracelet in the same way until you reach the other end then add the other end of your clasp. I varied the size of  beads and colour along the length of the bracelet.

I have used a brooch sieve with these beautiful 10mm 'lucite' acrylic beads and added alittle bling with some 3mm swarovski crystals. I started adding beads by coming from the back of the sieve to the front centre hole with the thread and added 3 size 11mm seed beads and then went back through the same hole. Working from the middle hole out. I put extra beads around the edge. Then I added the feature beads the same way by coming up through the a hole adding a feature bead and a crystal and then going back though the feature bead and the sieve.Add tassles at the bottom on the sieve by adding approx 20 seed beads the feature bead etc as before and going back through all the seed beads back through the sieve.
