It's so fun to play with all of the different shapes of two-hole beads. These CzechMates Crescent Beads add beautiful curves to the edges of this bracelet.
CzechMates Tile Beads and crescent beads are a magical match in this mesmerizing bracelet. Swarovski beads add the perfect amount of sparkle to this unique design. Learn how to make it and add a Magic Garden Path to your style
Use two yards of thread. With a needle on your thread, go up through the right side of a CzechMates glass 6mm Celsian Persian turquoise with Picasso two-hole tile bead and then down through the left side of another tile bead, making sure to leave a tail long enough for adding the clasp later. Then, go back up through the right side of the first bead.
Go back down through the left side of the second tile. Then, go up through the right side of the same tile.
Go down through a third tile bead and then go back through the right stringing hole of the second tile bead. Then, go back through the left hole of the third tile bead. Repeat this step until you reach the desired length for your bracelet, keeping in mind the clasp will add about one inch of length. Our piece features 22 tile beads and measure 6 1/2 inches.
At the end of the row of tile beads, with your needle coming out of the left stringing hole of the last tile, add a CzechMates glass 4x10mm 2-hole turquoise with bronze Picasso crescent bead, with the curve of the crescent pointing up toward you. Then add one Miyuki 11/0 round seed bead in transparent lilac AB, a Swarovski 4mm XILION bicone in Crystal Iridescent Green 2X, and another seed bead. Go down through the right stringing hole of the previous tile bead. Then go up through the left stringing hole of the same tile bead.
Add three seed beads and go down through the right stringing hole of the previous tile bead in the row.
Go up through the left stringing hole of the same tile bead, and add one crescent bead as you did before. Add a seed bead, a bicone, and another seed bead and then go down through the right stringing hole of the next tile bead in the row. Go up through the left stringing hole of this same tile. Repeat steps five and six until you reach the end of the bracelet.
If you flip your bracelet over to work on the other side, the crescent beads will have their tapered ends facing up toward you. Keep the orientation of the crescent beads in mind when adding the second edge to the bracelet. Now that your work is turned, your needle should be coming up and out of the right side of the first tile bead. Add three seed beads and go down through the left stringing hole of the next tile bead.
Go up through the right stringing hole of the same tile bead, making sure not to go under and not through the crescent bead already in place.
Add one crescent bead to the thread, followed by one seed bead, one bicone, and another seed bead. Go back down through the next stringing hole on the next tile bead. Again, make sure not to pass your needle through the crescent bead on the other side of the bracelet.
Go up through the right stringing hole of the tile bead and then add three seed beads. Go down through the next stringing hole on the next tile bead. Repeat steps eight through ten until you reach the end of the bracelet.
When you reach the end of the bracelet, your needle should be coming out of the last stringing hole on the last tile bead. Add three seed beads and the hook component of the JBB antique vintage brass-plated pewter leaf and flower hook and eye clasp. Then add three more seed beads. Go through the other end of the stringing hole and loop through the clasp and tile a couple more times to secure the hold. Weave the thread through several tile beads and make a knot using the threads between the beads. Trim any excess thread. Repeat this step on the other end of the bracelet (using the tail) with the loop half of the clasp. With the loop, you can add more seed beads if necessary. We added five seed beads on either side of the loop component.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
