Step-By-Step Instructions

Lots of shine and a touch of sparkle, the Iris Bracelet is a dainty accessory that will add a pop of style to any outfit. Learn how to create the pattern with 2-needles in this PotomacBeads tutorial.
1. Put 2 size 10 needles onto about 4.5 feet of .006 Wildfire beading thread. Pick up an 11/0, a Potomac crystal rondelle and another 11/0. Bring both needles up through the dome of a cup button. Add 2 seed beads to each needle. Criss-cross through 2 more seed beads. Make sure the threads are of equal length on both sides.
2. Watch the Iris Bracelet tutorial to follow along with Allie as she shows you how to create the pattern used in her beaded bracelet design.
3. Once you have added the Potomac crystal rondelles to the outside of the IrisDuos, add some 15/0s to the end of the project. Reinforce the clasp. Tie the 2 thread ends together. Burn the loose edges.
The Iris Bracelet is a fun way to experiment with the IrisDuo beads. Make different colored versions to match your style or give one as a thoughtful hand made gift.
