Materials Used To make The  Project

Quick Project Steps

Gather all materials and prepare your work surface.
Cut about 5 feet of .006 wildfire beading thread and thread it through a size 12 beading needle.
Start with right angle weave using the 4mm Bronzite and Brown Amazonite beads, alternating between them for a natural look.
Use 15/0 Miyuki seed beads to space out the gemstones and add color and texture.
Continue the pattern to the desired length of the bracelet or necklace.
Seam the edges of the weave together for a finished look.
Cut a length of 2mm Greek leather cording and string the beaded design onto it.
Create slip knots at the ends of the leather cording for an adjustable closure.
Trim any excess thread and cording, and finalize any adjustments for a neat finish.
