Learn how to make this Midnight Delight Crystal Step Bracelet using Chinese Crystal Faceted Rondelle beads and Toho frosted jet seed beads.

Step 1

Cut and condition approx 2 metres of Nymo and thread through your needle.

Step 2

Leaving a 10" tail, add 2 twisted bugle beads to your thread.  
Bring the needle back up through the first bead so that they sit side by side.  
Push the needle back down through the second bead and repeat until you have 6 bugle beads side by side.

Step 3

Add 1 seed bead, 1 faceted crystal, 1 seed bead and 2 twisted bugle beads to the needle.  
Push the beads down the the last twisted bugle bead from the row below and then push the needle up through the first of the twisted bugle beads you have just added to lay them side by side.

Step 4

Push the needle back down through the second bead and repeat until you have 6 twisted bugle beads side by side.

Step 5

Now add 1 seed bead, 1 faceted crystal, 1 seed bead and push needle back down through the corresponding twisted bugle bead from the bottom row and then bring the needle back up through the next twisted bugle bead.

Step 6

Now add 1 seed bead and push the needle through the faceted crystal.  
Now add 1 seed bead and push the needle up through the second twisted bugle bead in the top row.

Step 7

Push the needle back down through the next twisted bugle bead.  Add 1 seed bead, 1 faceted crystal, 1 seed bead and push the needle down through the corresponding twisted bugle bead on the bottom row.

Step 8

Repeat steps 6 and 7 until you have added 3 faceted crystals in the centre of the 2 rows of twisted bugle beads.

Step 9

Repeat steps 3 and 4.

Step 10

Now add 1 seed bead, 1 faceted crystal, 1 seed bead and push the needle back down the corresponding twisted bugle bead from the bottom row and then bring the needle back up through the  next twisted bugle bead.  
Make sure to only go through the twisted bugle bead and not the seed bead from the previous row. 

Step 11

Repeat steps 6 and 7 to complete the section.

Step 12

Repeat steps 9, 10 and 11 until you have reached the desired length of bracelet.  
Once this length is achieved add 3 seed beads.  
Push the needle down through the next twisted bugle bead and back up through the 3rd twisted bugle bead. 
Then add 5 seed beads, your clasp and 5 more seed beads. 
Push needle through the twisted bugle bead, the 5 seed beads, the clasp, the 5 seed beads and the twisted bugle beads several times to secure clasp.  
Push the needle up the next twisted bugle bead add 3 seed beads and push the needle down last twisted bugle bead.  
This completes the first edge of your bracelet.  
Push needle down through several beads and fasten off the thread.
