Step 1

Create a sewn fragment. Snip off 60 cm of the wire - three twists of the coil. String 4x C8. Keep an eye on the twist to the front and back. Tie two knots.


Step 2

Thread the wire through both holes in the nearest C8 near the knot. Thread the short end of the wire through two C8 and snip it off. String 1 new C8 between the C8 a total of 4x.


Step 3

Thread the wire through both holes of the connecting C8. String 1 C1 between the C8 a total of 4x.


Step 4

Thread the wire through both holes of the connecting C1. String 1 C2 between the C1 a total of 4x. Connect them again up to about half of the C1 and C2. Tighten the wire. Then start sewing it in. Create a knot - one is sufficient. Thread the wire through several other C1 and C2. Create a second knot. Thread the end of the wire through the following C1 or C2 and snip it off. The outer C2 should wobble. This will make it easier to thread the memory wire through them.


Step 5

Connect the other fragments, the second to the sixth. Repeat steps 1 to 4. In Step 4, connect the previous fragment. They have 1 C2 in common.


Step 6

Connect the last fragment (the seventh). Repeat steps 1 to 4. In Step 4, connect the previous fragment and the first fragment in the row. Use the common C2.

Step 7

Thread the outer C2 with the steel memory wire on one side of the bracelet. Snip off 1.5 twists. First create a loop on the memory wire. String 4x R8. Thread the wire through the free hole in the C2. Alternately string 10x or 11x R8 between the next C2. String 4x R8 behind the 7th C2. Tighten the stringing. Snip off about 8 mm of wire after the R8. Create a second loop. It should be perpendicular to the first loop.

Step 8

Repeat Step 7 on the second side of the bracelet. Now the threading will be more difficult. Proceed carefully.


Step 9

Now connect both steel wires. Slightly open the second end loop. Thread on the first one. Close it. You can use flat nose pliers when tightening the wire and threading the memory wire.
