Finishing Off A Russian Spiral Bangle Bracelet

9:00 AM

Finishing off a bangle bracelet using Soft Flex Beading Wire in .014 Fine diameter is easy. Once you have a lengthy tube that will fit comfortably around your wrist when bend it into a circle, you are going to zip the two ends together. At this point, you will stop adding new seed beads and only add new bugle beads.


You will pick up a new bugle bead and then the top step seed bead from the oldest side of the beaded tube. 


Then, pick up the corresponding top step on the newest side of the beaded tube and zip the spiraling beads into an endless spiral.

Repeat these steps until the entire tube is zipped closed. Carefully, knot the wire twice. Then, feed the wire through some beads and knot again. For added security, use a droplet of Special T glue. This is a terrific glue for securing knots. I like to add it to all of my knots when my project is completely finished.
