Right Track Bracelet

We feel confident we’re on the right track with this fun take on the classic wrap bracelet. All you need is some C-Flex beading wire, Miyuki Half Tila beads (HTL), size 11/0 seed beads, findings, and a button. String the first half of the bracelet with one HTL color and the second half with a different HTL color to create the illusion that you are wearing two bracelets. The right track bracelet looks perfect on its own or stacked with others.

Half Tila Wrap Bracelet Instructions

1. Begin with 3ft of C-flex beading wire. Add approximately 30 size 11/0 seed beads and bring them to the center of the wire.

2. Pick up one Half Tila (HTL) and string one end of the beading wire through each hole. This will form a U shape with the 11/0 seed beads already on the C-Flex.
