Follow-up and Next Meeting of Bead Society

Dear Beaders,

Thank you all who came to last week's meeting. Mardee Verdina taught a class in Cross-needle weave, kindly assisted by Marge Primavera. Let's all have a hand for Mardee and Marge!

If you missed the meeting, we hope that we'll see you for our next project, Crystal Cube Bracelet. This is a for a pretty, lightweight bracelet, perfect for the warmer months ahead.

The necessary materials are,

Crystal Cube Bracelet Materials

If using a 2 strand clasp

49 Swarovski crystal cubes size 4mm
68 Swarovski crystal bicones size 3mm
.010 Soft touch wire
4 Crimps
2 needles

If using a 1 Strand clasp

49 Swarovski crystal cubes size 4mm
68 Swarovski crystal bicones size 3mm
8lb test Fire Line
12 #15 seed beads to correspond with the bicones
2 needles.

Bead mat-scissors-tools--etc.

Always remember to buy a few extra since wrist sizes are not always the same.

While the instructions specify Swarovkis, check out our local bead stores for supplies. There are many cube beads on the market other than swarovski and I am sure the bead store personal would be happy to help you. I personally have some cube shaped amber beads in my stash that I intend to experiment with for this project.

The next meeting will be Thursday, May 18th so you have some time, but if you want to order Swarovskis for this project, you'll want to do that soonest. Hope to see you there!
