Step-By-Step Instructions

Watch this PotomacBeads tutorial to see how to create the Chesapeake Bangle using 2 needles. Featuring Quadratile beads and Potomac’s RounDuo beads, this beaded bangle has a neutral mix of silver and gold to match any other jewelry or outfit.
1.Put two size 10/11 needles onto about 5 feet of .006 Wildfire thread. Bring the needles through two side by side holes of the quadratile. Add 4 seed beads to each needle. Pick up a RounDuo by criss-crossing the needles through the same hole from different directions. Make sure the two threads are the same length.
2.Watch the Chesapeake Bangle tutorial to follow along with Allie as she creates the pattern used in this beaded bracelet.
3.Bring the thread to the bottom of the bracelet by sewing through the bottom of a quadratile. Make sure not to catch on any of the seed beads and pull the thread tight. Take the threads and knot together. Burn any thread ends throughout the project.
The Chesapeake Bangle is a fun project that’s not too difficult to create. It’s a durable bracelet that would look good stacked together. It also makes a great gift for a friend.
