Alternating Cellini Spiral Bead Bracelet

from MyAmari
(5) Name: 'Jewelry : Alternating Cellini Spiral Bead Bracelet
Alternating Cellini Spiral Bead Bracelet

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knowledge of Peyote Stitch will be helpful but not necessary.
  • You will need to know how to tie half hitch knots and tie in new thread.

Pattern Description:

This alternating Zig-Zagging Cellini Sprial Bracelet was inspired from pieces I saw with small sections of the zig-zagging (or mitered?) Cellini done and I wanted to figure out how to make it into a full bracelet. My instructions include the beads I used and the way I did it but I'm sure there are other/better ways of doing this. It is very simple, especially if you already know how to bead a Cellini spiral; you just switch directions to create the "V"s. I included step-by-step instructions for those of you who don't already know how to bead the spiral or just beginning with bead weaving. My blog link includes some other sites I found with this stitch along with the flat version.

Bead weaving is my baby but I enjoy crocheting and cross stitching. I started beading almost 2 years ago and have been crocheting and cross stitching off and on for the last 10 years. I love keeping ...
