Artist’s Tips:

  • Nylon beading thread is more flexible than FireLine, so it’s better for this project.
  • Adjust the size of the bracelet by altering the number of large or small components, adding or subtracting crescent beads in the connections, or using a larger clasp.
  • Try using different-colored cabochons in the large and small components for more variety.
