Double St. Petersburg Chain Bracelet Pattern


This bracelet is made using the "Double St. Petersburg Chain" as a base. It looks really hard, but it can be made in a day. Using the larger Delica beads for the St. Petersburg chain part really makes it fast and easy to complete. I used gunmetal color beads and blue Fire-polished crystals. Gunmetal was really popular for awhile but seems to not be as much now. I really like this color though, especially on a cold winter night out with a cute little black top.
Start by waxing and stretching your thread, use Nymo D or C-Lon & a #11 or #12 beading needle. Tie in a "stopper" bead, leaving about an 8" tail and begin at step #1.



A = Miyuki DELICA bead
B =
Miyuki 8° SEED bead
C =
Miyuki 8° SEED bead
D =
Miyuki 11° SEED bead  
E =
4mm Fire-polished crystals
