I actually got the instructions from this board.


My beads are just regular and silver-lined seed beads, fire polished beads, and fiber optic beads from Michael's.  I used invisible thread from the sewing section.  Fishing line is too stiff.  I did use transite for the beading the base strand of seed beads, then made the fringes with the invisible thread.  I have a toggle clasp on mine, but Beach (the original designer) used a large bead and made a loop of beads for her clasp.

janakisses, I'm so glad you posted pics, your bracelet looks wonderful.  I felt the same way you did when I was done - loved the bracelet but wasn't sure I'd ever do it again because it took so long!

Very exciting about your commisssions!   Hope they go speedily!   Post pics before you sell them if you can!

Now selling awesomeness with my partners in craftiness!
