Description

"Bubbles, bubbles all around- Both big and small ones to be found!" Blown Glass beads remind me of bubbles...the are hollow and mysterious and look as though they could float through the air. I combined these "bubbles" with beautiful round Sea Glass rounds and added 6/0 seed beads in Blueberry. Three strands to envelope your wrist in blue bubbly fun and whimsy!

Karla Schafer, Auntie's Beads Designer

Instructions:
Note: I will be using the Blueberry Mix randomly and I find that when using a multi strand clasp it is best to keep it together, so you don't make a mistake and crimp it upside down.

1. Cut (3) pieces of 10" beading wire.
2. Keeping the clasp together, crimp each wire into each of the loops on one side of the clasp, using the Magical Crimp Forming Tool.
3. String the following pattern to the first strand of the bracelet: (2) seed beads, sea glass, (4) seed beads, sea glass, (4) seed beads, sea glass, (2) seed beads, blown glass round, seed bead; string through the first hole of the separator bar; sea glass, seed bead, sea glass, seed bead, sea glass; string through the first hole of the second separator bar; seed bead, blown glass round, (2) seed beads, sea glass, (4) seed beads, sea glass, (4) seed beads, sea glass, (2) seed beads. Secure the wire with a bead stopper.
4. String the following pattern to the center strand of the bracelet: (5) seed beads, sea glass, (5) seed beads, sea glass, (10) seed beads; string the wire through the center hole of the separator bar; seed bead, blown glass oval, seed bead; string the wire through the center hole of the second separator bar; (10) seed beads, sea glass, (5) seed beads, sea glass, (5) seed beads. Secure the wire with a bead stopper.
5. For the third and final strand, repeat Step 3.
6. To complete the bracelet, crimp each strand into the coordinating loop, starting with the first, middle than the third strand, adjusting the tension with each strand. It will be tight spot, so be careful to crimp each strand completely.
