I really love how simple and light-weight this design is. The finished piece has plenty of “bling” from the sparkle of twisted bugle beads without being bulky. The only materials required to make this bracelet are 11/0 seed beads and Czech #3 (6.4mm) bugle beads, but the 11/0 seed beads must be large enough so that their length is equal (or greater) than the width of the bugle beads. For all of the examples below, I used Dyna-Mite seed beads (from firemountaingems.com), and twisted Czech #3 bugle beads from Hobby Lobby. As always, I recommend using Fireline when working with bugle beads so the thread does not break against sharp edges. I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
