This looks like a wonderful project, but something seems inconsistent or missing in the demonstration of the 2nd row where the beads begin to be incorporated. The 1st bead goes into the 4th hole and both a non-bead stitch and a bead stitch go into the 3rd hole?
Beaducation Replied:
From Mel McCabe: if you want to replicate the pattern in the video, do a plain stitch and then a beaded stitch, alternating each stitch with a bead. It is hard to make an error with this project because the wire is so organic looking. Depending on the size and type of beads you use, if you are incorporating more large beads, you may decide to do more plain stitches without beads around the large beads to give them room to show some impact and shine.

Impressive technique! I love the idea of taking my (yarn) crochet skills into a new direction. Thanks for the inspiration.

If I start this project the way you have written down the directions with the first stitch in the fifth chain, and a bead in the forth chain etc. etc. I only end up with two beads by the time I get to the end. The only way this works is to have a bead put into the fifth chain and a stitch in the forth chain etc. etc. using the pattern in this way is the only way you will end up with three beads in that row. What am I doing wrong?
Beaducation Replied:

From Mel McCabe: With this bracelet, you can put a bead into the fifth stitch, third and first to have three beads included or put one into the fourth and second and start with two beads on the first row. You will be alternating as you complete the rows so the beads are not lying on top of one another. It is important to make sure that you add beads according to the sizes you are using. As long as you are completing your stitches, it is up to you how many beads you add for your overall look.

I just noticed that Mel revised the materials list and now recommends the Beadalon .015 Bead Stringing Wire. I'm new to beading, and I'm hoping that the 7-strand .015 wire is sufficient. After I bought the 7-strand, I see that it's offered up to 19-strand.

Guess I'll just jump in and hope for the best on my first project.

From Mel McCabe:  The 7 strand will work perfectly as well :) Either is just fine.
