Picture of Sparkling Bracelet Tutorial

I received a really good review on this bracelet instructions that I created. SEE REVIEW HERE I wanted to let you guys have a peek at he basic steps to create the bracelet. The step is called right angle weave using 2 needles. You can use this technique on various handmade jewelry designs.

Step 1:

Cut a good amount of thread and fold it in half. Then make 4 sets of bicones in 2 different colors on the left and right thread.

Step 2:

Nicely done! I had wondered how that was pulled off.

Have to say, that when I read the title I was expecting the bracelet to be made out of angsty vampires....
