Bugle Bead Bracelet
Step 1 Use the crimp beads to attach the wires to one of the spacer bars. 9 pieces on the outside loops and the 18 folded in half & crimped to the center loop.
Step 2 On the outer wires alternate seed beads & bugle beads until desired length is achieved. We used 17 seed beads & 16 bugle beads. You must use an even number of bugle beads for the pattern to end properly. Crimp ends of wire to the outside loops of the other spacer bar.
Step 3 -
To build the center, add 1 seed bead over both wires, then a bugle bead on each wire and weave the wires through the seed bead on the outer row.
Step 3a - Add a bugle bead on each wire, then a seed bead on both wires. Repeat this pattern until you have reached the loop on the spacer bar. End with a seed bead; add the crimp bead to both wires, thread through the loop & back through the crimp bead. Crimp securely. Trim excess wire.
Step 4 Use the jumprings to attach the clasp.
