Instructions
 

Step #1

Cut a 5-1/4" length of brown Artistic Wire Mesh. 

Step #2

Without cutting the antique brass mesh, layer it on top of the brown mesh and use chain nose pliers to attach the finding to one end. 

Step #3

Pull the edges apart to ruffle it slightly and layer it on top of the brown mesh. 

Step #4

Cut the ruffled antique brass mesh to the same length as the brown mesh.

Step #5

Hold the layers together and attach the finding to the end of the mesh pieces.

Step #6

Cut a yard of Wildfire and use it to thread the needle. 

Step #7

Tie a knot in the end of the thread and pass it through one end of the mesh from back to front. 

Step #8

Backstitch through the first bead, then add three more beads. (see tip)

Step #9

Continue adding beads until you reach the end of the bracelet.

Step #10

Backstitch through the last bead, then knot the thread on the back of the bracelet.
