Quick Project Steps

This magnificent Constessa bracelet is a graceful accessory to top off your outfit. This PotomacBeads tutorial shows you how to make this brilliant bracelet based on the right angle weave.
1. Using a size 12 needle, tie a stop bead onto about 5 feet of .006 beading thread, leaving about a 7 inch tail. Put on a 3mm pearl, seed bead, 4mm pearl, another seed bead and repeat the pattern again. Push the beads next to the stop bead. Sew back through from the beginning, coming out of the second 3mm pearl.
2. Embellish the right angle weave using seed beads and Potomac crystal rondelles. Watch the Constessa bracelet tutorial to see how to continue building on to the pattern.
3. Put the elegant elements hex clasp on the end. Go back to the beginning end and take off the stop bead. Thread the needle on and add the other end of the clasp through the pearls. Reinforce the clasp, tie off the thread and burn down any loose ends.
The Contessa bracelet can easily be made into a matching necklace. The pair would make a stunning gift for someone special.
