Tibetan Bangle Kit
©2003 by Cynthia Rutledge

Our 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.

The kit contains:

  • A complete, row per row instruction sheet.
  • A color Xerox image of Tibetan Bangle
  • Delica beads for making the body of the bangle
  • 2 colors of 15/0s for embellishing, anchoring rondelles and edge-stitching the edges of the bangle.
  • 2 colors of Czech glass 4mm rondelles for embellishing
  • 10mm beads for the focal beads. Depending on the kit these beads are, either, natural or shell pearls, or semi-precious beads in faceted or smooth. Since these items are natural they may change slightly depending on availability.
  • 1 bobbin 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 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
  • Work surface of choice
  • Lighting and magnification
