SuperDuo Wrap Bracelet

Part Number:PROJ-0385

About This Project

I made several of these about Christmas time last year then set it aside. I believe it was something I saw on our Bead Chat. I realized I have not done this as a project and thought this would be a good time to bring it back out! The SuperDuos come in so many colors that the combinations could be endless. I add an extra button for a focal to the wrap besides the one I use as a clasp. Of course a focal bead would work too!


Techniques and Skill Level:

Easy/Beginner. Crimping required. Learn how to crimp.

  1. Determine the length of the finished wrap. For instance if you want it to wrap three times, as my sample, than figure 7.5x3=22.5 and add some extra.
  2. You will need to double the amount you determine, so I am going to cut about 50" of beading wire.
  3. String enough 11/0 seed beads to create a loop around your button, I used about 32 beads, let these beads drop to the center of the beading wire.
  4. String a SD over both wires and bring it down to the 11/0's.
  5. Repeat this pattern, 11/0 on both wires and SD until you have threaded about 8 1/2"; string on the other button and continue the 11/0-SD pattern for another 12".
  6. When you have reached your end, ending with 11/0's string (1) 11/0 on to both wires together and run the wires up through a crimp bead, wire guardian back down the other side of the wire guardian.
  7. Slip the button shank onto the wire guardian and then run the wires back through the crimp bead.
  8. Make the necessary adjustments to tighten up the work and flat crimp the crimp bead using chain nose pliers.
  9. Trim the excess wire with your nipper tool to complete!

I love this bracelet but I am a beginner beader. It helps tremendously if there is a drawing or video so that I understand the technique.
