VINE

1. On a comfortable length of Fireline, attach a stop bead, leaving an 8-in. (20 cm) tail.

2. Pick up three color A 11/0 seed beads and five color B 11/0 seed beads.

3. Sew back through the As (FIGURE 1, a–b). Skip the last bead, and sew back through the other two As (b–c).

4. Pick up three As and five Bs. Sew back through the As, and continue through the last B from the previous leaf (c–d).

5. Pick up three As and five Bs. Sew back through the As (FIGURE 2, a–b) and the first B from the previous leaf (b–c).

6. Continue stitching the vine by alternating steps 4 and 5 until your bracelet is the desired length.

7. Pick up four As, the split ring, and three As. Sew back through the first A and several vine beads (refer to the photo above). Retrace the thread path through the loop. Secure the thread in the beadwork with a few half-hitch knots, and trim.

8. Remove the stop bead, and thread a needle on the tail. Pick up three As, the lobster claw clasp, and three As. Sew back through several vine beads. Retrace the thread path through the loop. Secure the tail, and trim.

3. Pick up three Cs, and sew through the same B again (b–c).

4. Repeat with four Cs (c–d).

5. Sew through the vine, and exit the first B of the fourth leaf (FIGURE 3, point b). Repeat steps 2–4 to make another flower.

6. Continue stitching a flower on every third leaf at the point where the leaf meets the vine. When you have finished the flowers, secure the thread, and trim.
