Do the Watusi with Wyatt!

It was a dance party in the Beadalon office for today's Facebook Live featuring the fun and funky Watusi stringing technique. It's a different way of using Bead Stringing Wire than traditional stringing that has a beautiful payoff.

For the bracelet in this video, Wyatt used
2 pieces 12 inches long of .024 White 49 Strand Beadalon Bead Stringing Wire; beads that can accommodate 2 strands of the .024 Wire: and
29 inches of 19 Strand .018 Beadalon Bead Stringing Wire

Pro Tip: Use a Spool Tamer to keep your Beading Wire from unraveling!

There are written instructions here, and I like how Wyatt tweaked the original technique a little bit in the starting and finishing. Crimping onto a 3 strand clasp makes for a really tidy start and finish. I love that once you learn the technique, there are unlimited variations! You can use different sizes of beads, different shapes of beads, different numbers of beads, etc.

I'll be back next Wednesday to keep the party going! Is there anything you 'd like to see featured in an upcoming Facebook Live? Drop us a comment and let us know!

Happy beading,
Meredith
