Notes:

A. Substitute teardrop, pear-shaped or briolette beads instead of daggers for a similar look. E bead is a common name for size 6/0 seed beads.

B. This bracelet works well in a variety of color combinations. Try mixing blue daggers with aqua rectangles or frosted clear daggers with red rectangles.

C. This bracelet fits a 7” wrist. To adjust the pattern for a different size, use a bead board to arrange the beads and measure before stringing.

How to:

1. Cut the beading wire into two equal lengths.

2. Hold the wires together as one and pass one end through a crimp tube and half of the clasp.

3. Pass the wires back through the crimp tube and use a crimping tool to crimp it.

4. Pass the wires through one E bead.

5. Separate the wires and pass each one through six dagger beads.

6. Hold the wires together again and pass them through a crimp bead (don’t crimp it), a purple rectangle bead and another crimp bead.

7. Repeat Steps 5-6 four more times.

8. Separate the wires and pass each one through six dagger beads.

9. Hold the wires together and pass them through an E bead, crimp tube and half of the clasp.

10. Pass the wires back through the crimp tube and use a crimping tool to crimp it.

11. Pull gently on the bracelet to make sure the crimps are secure and then cut off any extra wire.
