Who doesn’t like to shine from time to time?  I think everyone of us turns into a little magpie sometimes. And crystals are the best for magpies! Paula is going to show you how to make a bracelet with rivoli crystals. She also used Fire Polish so the WOW effect is guaranteed. So, if you have some spare time, sit and make this beautiful bracelet with Paula.

Supplies used in this project:

Remember, the purpose of our tutorials is to teach you a certain technique. You can create your own versions. So don’t be afraid of letting your imagination run wild. We are sure you will make wonderful bracelets. Let’s start!

Step 1

Prepare quite a long piece of thread – you can make a whole bracelet with 1 thread so if you can work with really long thread (I can’t) – go ahead! About 1.5m long will be enough.

Thread the needle.

Step 1

Step 2

String a sequence of: 1x FP -- 4xTH 11/0 -- 1x FP -- 4xTH 11/0 -- 1x FP -- 4xTH 11/0 -- 1x FP -- 4xTH 11/0.

Step 1

Step 3

Pass the needle through the 1st strung FP and pass through all the beads around.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 4

Pass a needle through a FP bead.

Step 1

Step 5

String 3 11/0 TOHO and pass the needle through the nearest FP. Repeat that 4 times.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

Pass through the 11/0 TH just added. String 3 beads and pass the needle so that the thread comes out of the 2nd (central) 110 TH.

Step 1

Step 7

String FP and pass through the nearest top 11/0 TH. Repeat that until you have added 4 FP.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 8

The top of the 1st part of our bracelet is finished. Let’s move on! Pass the needle through the beads so that the thread comes out of a bottom FP.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 9

Turn your work. String 5 11/0 TH and pass through the nearest FP. Repeat that 4 times.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 10

You can pass the needle through the whole sequence just added, but it’s not necessary. Pass the needle so that the thread comes out of the 3rd (central) 11/0 TH.

Step 1

Step 11

We’re not going to add any beads now. Pass the needle through all top beads. Your work looks like a basket now, but don’t pull the thread yet!

Step 1

Step 2

Step 12

Before you pull the thread, put an 8 mm Bonny crystal inside your work. My bracelet needs to shine, but a crystal is not obligatory.

Step 1

Step 13

As the crystal is inside now, you can pull the thread. Pass the needle through all 4 beads again and the 1st part is finished.

Step 1

Step 14

10/11 such squares are recommended for a 15 cm wrist. There is still some work to do.

Now we need to make a link that will be used to connect the next square. Pass the needle so that the thread comes out of 4 11/0 TH beads (the first beads we added at the beginning).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 15

String 4 11/0 TH and pass up through the sequence you exited.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 16

Pass the needle down through the 4 beads just added and string 4 11/0 TH again.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 17

Pass the needle down through the 4 beads previously added and pass the needle through the beads just added.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 18

String 1x FP -- 4xTOHO 11/0 -- 1x FP -- 4xTOHO 11/0 -- 1x FP -- 4xTOHO 11/0 --1x FP and pass the needle to make a basis of the next square. Do you know what we’re going to do now? Yes – basically, we’re going to repeat all the previous steps. Continue until you have reached the desirable length of the bracelet. See you at the final part!

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 19

Add 3x TH 11/0.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 20

Add FP between the top 11/0 TH.

Step 1

Step 21

Add 5 11/0 TH in the gaps. Put the crystal inside and pass the needle through the top 11/0 TH previously added.

Step 1

Step 22

Make a link for the next square.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 23

And make another one. We are moving forward slowly.

Step 1

Step 24

As you remember the pattern you can make your bracelet really quickly.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 25

It’s almost finished.

As you have reached the desirable length you can finish off your bracelet.

Step 1

Step 26

Pass the needle through a FP bead. String 3 x 11/0 TH, 1 8/0 TH and 3 x 11/0 TH. Pass through the nearest FP bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 27

Pass the needle through the whole basis of the square and through the beads just added to tighten it and to pull the thread. Pass through several beads of this square once again, secure the thread and cut it.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 28

Repeat that on the opposite side of your bracelet.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 29

Take the pliers and attach the clasp. Pass the jump rings through 8/0 TH and attach the magnetic clasp and… it’s finished.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 30

You can now wear your bracelet and enjoy its wonderful shimmer. I hope you like this tutorial and I would love to see your designs in our Facebook group. Kisses!
