Kelly McCoy, Auntie’s Beads Designer
1. Cut a nine inch piece of 18 gauge artistic wire. Use your round nose and chain nose pliers to make a small spiral on one end. Begin adding 8mm bicones in a random order (you can plan out a pattern first if you wish, I just made sure not to place the same color side by side).
2. If you have a seven inch wrist, string 11 bicones, add your beaded bead, and then add 11 more bicones. If you have a larger wrist, try adding 12 bicones on either side of the beaded bead.
3. To finish the bracelet, trim the wire so to about 2 inches. Use your round nose and chain nose pliers to make a spiral that rests snugly against the bicones. Place around your wrist and squeeze into place.
