Making Your Bracelet: 1. With an arm span of fireline thread, add a needle to each end.

2. Thread on the magnetic clasp to the centre point then add a size 8 seed bead to both needles.

3. Add a rondelle to the right needle then pass the left needle through the rondelle and pull tight.

4. Add a ceramic bead to the left needle and 4 x rondelles to the right needle, then cross the left needle through the last rondelle.

5. Add a ceramic bead to the right needle and 4 x rondelles to the left, then cross the right needle through the last rondelle. Continue this process until you get the desired bracelet length.

6. On the last rondelle you have passed both needles through, add a size 8 seed bead to the left and right, then add the other half of the magnetic clasp to the right needle.

7. Pass the left needle through the clasp hole and using both needles pass back through the size 8 beads.

8. Pull the threads tight and tie off the left needle thread leaving a tail to weave through your bracelet at the end.

Then with the right thread pass the needle through the first rondelle, exiting in front of the ceramic bead and add 10 x size 8 seed beads and pass through the middle rondelle, exiting in front of the ceramic bead.

9. Continue to do this up through your bracelet, pulling the thread tight. This will allow the seed beads to rise up the ceramic bead creating a weave effect.

10. Once you reach the end clasp tie off your thread and weave all remaining threads through the body of your bracelet.
