Aqua Pearl Bangle Braceleta

Hi everyone, it’s Darsie, and today I have created a pretty Aqua Pearl Bangle Bracelet using Julianna’s Jewel Loom™ from Beadalon® and Twisted wire by Artistic Wire. I just love using wire in my creations as it gives me an opportunity to form the woven beads into any shape I like. You’ll find the tutorial below on how to make this pretty bracelet! ~Enjoy!

Aqua Pearl Bangle Bracelet1b

To create the bracelet, use four strands of Silver Plated Twisted Wire 20 gauge by Artistic Wire for the warp threads on the Jewel Loom™ to allow each row to have three 8mm pearls.  Weave 19 rows using Wildfire Bead Thread in white. With 24 gauge silver wire, weave back and forth throughout the length of the bracelet, then remove from the loom.

step1

Slide two warp threads through both holes of a Silver Pearl Rosette, then slide the other two on the other side of the rosette. Do this with both ends of the bracelet.

step2

With flat nose pliers, twist the warp threads into one large wire, cut to within 1 inch and form a spiral. Do this with both ends of the bracelet.

step3

Bend bracelet until both spirals are touching and connect the spirals with 24 gauge silver wire (as shown below). Thread two lengths of twisted wire with 1 6mm white pearl, silver spacer, 8mm aqua pearl, silver spacer, 8mm aqua pearl, spacer, 6 mm white pearl and attach to the rosette on each side.
