Alyeska's Jewel ©2005 by Cynthia RutledgeOur kits are packaged in a handy but strong plastic case that snaps shut securely. This case is just the right size to slip into your bag if you want to take your kit with you. We carefully label each package of beads or embellishments in the kit so you know exactly what to use for each part of the design.


This kit contains:

  • A complete, row per row instruction sheet packet for making 10 different sizes of bangles
  • A color Xerox image of Alyeska's Jewel
  • 11/0 seed beads for making the body of the bangle
  • 15/0 seed beads for increasing within the body of the bangle
  • Delica beads for making the four bands
  • 15/0 seed beads for edge-stitching the four bands
  • 15/0 seed beads for the four Herringbone Filigree Shapes on the bands
  • 11/0 seed beads for the Stitch-in-the-ditch technique around the outside edges of the bangle
  • 6mm Swarovski Crystal rondelles for the centers of the filigree shapes
  • 3mm Swarovski Crystals or Crystal Pearls for embellishing the ends of the filigree shapes
  • 3mm Swarovski Crystals or Crystal Pearls for embellishing the centers of the filigree shapes
  • 1 magnetic clasp in either gold-toned or silver-toned
  • 1 foot of vinyl tubing
  • 2 bobbins of Nymo thread, size B
  • 2 size 12 beading needles
  • A handy plastic carrying case

Supplies you will need to complete your bangle:

  • Every beader uses supplies that they feel comfortable with, so if you prefer different thread then Nymo, please feel free to use that as a replacement. For the best possible product, please use a color of thread that compliments the main 11/0 and the Delica bead.
  • Most threads prefer to be waxed. I use Micro-crystal wax. Using wax lubricates the thread and helps to eliminate shredding.
  • Small, sharp scissors or cutters or a Zapper
  • A short beading needle, about a size 10, for piercing the tubing when adding the clasp
  • About 1.5 yards of 6lb. FireLine for attaching the two ends of the clasp.
  • 1 small pair of chain nose pliers for pulling the needle through the tubing when adding the clasp
  • Work surface of choice
  • Lighting and magnification
