Paired green, iris, tila beads keep perfect alignment between shiny spacer bars in this unique bracelet. The clean, cool lines makes perfect sense when you want to make a statement without making a lot of noise. Pleasing to the eye, this project is also pleasingly simple to make.

Directions

step 1 - Cut a piece of beading thread six feet long or a length with which you are comfortable working.  Add a stop bead 8” from the end of the thread.  Pass the needle through a spacer bar, the top holes of bead 1, and the top holes of bead 2.

Step 7 - Continue adding beads and spacer bars repeating steps 4, 5, and 6 until you have 21 spacer bars and 20 sets of tila beads.  Increase these numbers if you need a larger bracelet.  Run your thread from the last spacer bar into the loops of a slide clasp then back into the bar again.  Do this twice for each loop then finish by running the thread back into the work making half hitch knots.

step 8 - Remove the stop bead from the beginning of the work and add the needle.  Connect the loops of the slide clasp as you did for the other end of the bracelet.
