Step-By-Step Instructions

Learn a simple method to bezel Potomac crystal chatons in this PotomacBeads tutorial to create this dazzling Caribbean Jewels bracelet. This fine piece of jewelry is sure to catch the light and the eyes of all who see it.
1. Put a stop bead on about 5 feet of .006 beading thread using a size 12 needle. Pick up a pattern of 4 bricks and champagne colored seed beads. Bring the needle back through all the beads to create a loop. Push the loop down to the stop bead.
2. Step up to the top hole of the brick, add 4 blush colored seed beads and bring the needle to the second hole of the next brick in line. Follow along with Allie in the Caribbean Jewels bracelet tutorial as she gives you tips and tricks to creating the bezeled components.
3. Add the cup button to the end when you have reached the desired length. Tie a knot in the thread an burn down. On the starter side, take off the stop bead and put on the needle. Make a loop out of seed beads, big enough to go around the cup button. Tie off the thread and burn the end flush. Glue a crystal inside the cup button.
This fancy Caribbean Jewels bracelet is so glamorous, perfect for a night out or special occasion. Use this easy
bezeling technique to make a matching necklace or a heartfelt gift for someone.
