Skill Level: Intermediate
Step 1: String on all of the 144 size 6 seed beads first.
Step 2: *Ch2, pull up a bead, ch3. Slst in 5th ch from hook. Repeat from * until you use up all of your 144 beads. Ch1 to secure. Fasten off, weave ends into work. Set aside.
Step 3: With your round nose pliers, make a small loop at one end of your memory wire going with the curve of the wire. Make this loop big enough to latch your clasp to.
Step 4: Place an 8mm bead onto the memory wire. Push it all the way to the loop you just made.
Step 5: *Run your memory wire through 8 of the stitches where you made your slip stitches on your crochet work. Slip on another 8mm bead. Repeat from * until all of your 19 round 8mm beads are used up and your crochet work is all on the memory wire.
Step 6: To finish your bracelet, push your crochet work tight against the first bead and loop. Trim your memory wire so the straight end is about an 1/8" away from the loop when you try it on your wrist. You need this space to allow for the clasp. My clasp and 2 loops took up 3/4" of space. You want your bracelet to float on your wrist but not dangle. Make a small loop on your other end making sure the loop is big enough to fit the loop part of your clasp on the loop. Close the loop up tight once your clasp is attached. Fluff up the loops of the crochet work and adjust it so it is evenly dispersed on your wire.
