Our next meeting is May 15. Alyce McCloughlin will be teaching a Bangle made with a Diamond Net Cable.

Supplies:

One beading needle, size 12 or big eye if desired. If you are using charlottes a big eye might have trouble fitting through the beads.
Beading thread--Nymo size D or fireline.
174 round 4mm beads
Seed beads, size 11
color A seed beads, size 15/0
color B seed beads, size 15/0
Scissors, mat, light, thread conditioner.

Look at the attached picture and you will see that the black and gold one only used one color of size 15/0's. Black Onyx was used for the 4mm beads. The other bracelet used round crystals and one color of 15/0's.

To construct the Bangle you build a cable of beads to fit comfortably over your hand. The supply list is for an 8cm bracelet. You can also construct several cables and attach them with larger beads to form a necklace.

Tip: The larger the number for wire or for needles the smaller the wire or thinner the needle. So 24 gauge wire is very thin and 14 gauge is thick. A size 12 needle is very fine and a 10 is heavier.

We are still giving some great door prizes at each meeting so hope you can come and maybe go home with a nice kit, book or gift certificate.

Until May---Happy Beading
