A flexible stringing material (for example Opelon, elastomer, rubber), scissors, a thin needle with a nitěné očko , a thin thread
Tie the loop of thread onto the needle eye. Cut off about 15 cm of the thin thread (tailor’s sewing thread). Pass it through the eye of the needle. Take both ends of the thread and tie them in a simple knot (create a loop around your finger, pass both ends through it and tighten). Place the end of the flexible stringing material in the nitěné očko. The flexible stringing material threaded into the nitěné očko may easily slide out. It is therefore necessary to keep an eye on this when stringing the individual beads.
The bracelet consists of rows of TR which are mutually intermeshed. String 6x TR onto the flexible stringing material, turn 3 beads to the right and 3 beads to the left. When stringing the other rows, add the TR into the created gaps. Make arches of 3x R10 above the outer TR, pass the flexible stringing material with the seed beads from one hole to the next. Use only yellow rocailles on one side and orange on the other side. At the beginning of the stringing, keep in mind the final knot which needs to pulled into the surrounding holes. Therefore start in the middle of the bracelet by stringing about 3x TR. Then proceed in the standard manner according to the previous procedure by stringing the outer arches of R10 and adding the TR. After stringing the necessary length of the bracelet, supplement the starting row (the remaining 3x). Then tie both ends of the flexible stringing material together. Slightly tighten and then tie two simple knots. Adapt the knot size to the size of the holes in the seed beads. Cut off the end of the flexible stringing material and move it and conceal it in the nearest seed bead.

The trend for two-hole beads and seed beads is continuing. PRECIOSA ORNELA presents another product from the range of new beads for 2013, the PRECIOSA Twin Roller. Once again, you can try out the many excellent combinations and options provided by this two-hole bead.
The PRECIOSA Twin Roller two-hole roller bead excellently supplements the growing range of beads and seed beads with two holes thanks to its shape and dimensions. Many stringing and construction options present themselves and there is nothing easier than trying out and using your own designs. We wish you many creative ideas when working with all types of Czech beads and seed beads.
