A 0.20 mm nylon line, a long thin needle, scissors, flat nosed pliers (for flattening the end of the nylon line)
Begin the stringing with a so-called stop bead. On the needle and line gradually string a figure consisting of 3x R, 1x T, 1x R and 1x T onto the needle and line and then repeat according to the required size of the bracelet (figure no. 1b). 17 figures seed beads have been strung together on our bracelet. String 4x R after the last seed bead and pass the line through the R before the T. Then add 1x T, 1x R and 1x T and pass the line through the first rocaille in front of the Twin, add 1x R and pass the line through the third rocaille. Continue in this way until the strap has been created (figure no. 1c): add 1 R at the end of the row, thread the line through all four rocailles one more time and tie off both ends with a strong knot.
You have now sewn the initial row of the future bracelet. (fig. no. 2a)
Sew the second and third rows on one side of the basic strap and then repeat the same on the other side. Add 1x R, 1x T, 1x R, 1x T and 1x R in the next row and pass the line through the seed bead between the T in the initial row. Continue in this way along the entire length up to the end of the row. Then pass the line through the last seed bead between the T, string 3x R and pass the line through the T, R and T in the initial row. Repeat this procedure along the entire length (fig. no. 2b, 2c). Sew the third row similarly to the second, but at the beginning pass the line through the T and string 4x R. Pass the line through the first strung seed bead, then string 1x T, 1x R, 1x T, 1x R and continue as in the second row. It is possible to use PRECIOSA Solo™ Pressed Beads instead of Twin beads in the row.
You now have a sewn bracelet and you need to put together a “ball” for the fastening. String 4x T and tie them tightly in a circle, then pass the line through the second hole of the T and string 1x T. Repeat this 3x. Pass the line through the second hole of the T and connect all of the strung T and sew them up so that the “ball” is strengthened (figure no. 3a). Sew the ball onto one side of the bracelet. Create an eye from the strung seed beads on the other side of the bracelet.

PRECIOSA Twin™ and PRECIOSA Solo™, the unique Czech seed bead and bead from the family of Czech glass beads and seed beads with the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand, presents a sober, but classic colour combination. Create lacy bracelets in basic glass colours which never go out of style.
PRECIOSA ORNELA presents another tutorial for the creative use of the unique PRECIOSA Twin™ oval, two-hole seed bead and bead, and the PRECIOSA Solo™ pressed bead which has been produced as a supplementary one-hole bead in the same size and shape as the PRECIOSA Twin™ bead, this time in a classic black and white colour combination. Using the unique two-hole PRECIOSA Twin™ seed bead and beads and the PRECIOSA Solo™ pressed bead, it is possible to create a flat pattern with a highlighted colour contrast relatively simply. By repeating it, you can create any surface or strap and use a decoration or an appliqué as a costume jewellery accessory. If you have not yet tried combination of this two-hole seed bead and one-hole bead in the same size, have a look at this tutorial for an elegant bracelet made of seed beads and beads with the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand.You can find more information about this seed bead at: http://preciosa-ornela.com/seed-beads-twin , PCO-CARD: 2887 PRECIOSA ORNELA wishes you many creative experiences with seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand.
