    1. Put 2 size 12 needles onto 6 feet of .006 Wildfire beading thread. Pick up a seed bead, a Potomac crystal rondelle and another seed bead. Bring both needles up through a cup button with the bowl facing down. Add 4 seed beads to each needle. Criss-Cross through a crystal.
    2. Watch the Ellen Bracelet tutorial to follow along with Allie as she guides you through the process of creating the pattern in the beaded bracelet.
    3. Reinforce the clasp when you get to the end of the project. Bring the needles together and tie into a knot. Burn the ends with a thread zap.
