Crystal Sparkle Bracelet! Free Project with Michaels Classroom

The Project PDF is here:  Crystal Sparkle Bracelet

Description of Class: 

In this class, we will learn a beginner-friendly design featuring sparking Czech crystal bicones! The shape of bicone beads work naturally to a right-angle-weave stitch. In this design, Czech SuperDuo 2-hole beads are integrated into the base stitch in a compass star. A pass back through the stitches adds a stacked embellishment of smaller bicones and seed beads, using the wings, or star-points, of the SuperDuo in a stitch that pulls them up.

The Recorded Class is here.
