    Step-By-Step Instructions

    This lustrous Charleston Bracelet is a beautiful accessory that you’ll love to use to dress up your look. Learn how to create this mesmerizing multi strand bracelet in this tutorial from PotomacBeads.
    1. Add a cube bead to the thread and loop the thread around it a second time. Pick up another cube and take the needle back up through the first cube. Go down through the second cube and pick up another. Thread through the previous cube and back down the newest one. Continue the ladder stitch until you have 6 cubes in a row. This will be the width of the bracelet.
    2. Watch the Charleston Bracelet tutorial to see how to create the strands for the bracelet.
    3. Add the Potomax long oval 5-loop clasp by threading through the bridge threads in between the cubes on the end of the bracelet. Glue a long oval crystal in to the clasp. Burn down the loose thread ends throughout the project.
    This lovely Charleston bracelet has lots of movement on your wrist, giving a pleasant flowing look. Choose your favorite suggested colorway, or make both and give one as a stunning gift.
