Step 2

Thread the line through the already threaded holes of both T one more time. Thread the line through the empty holes in the T and add 1x R between them.

Step 3

String 2x T. Thread the line through the loop from the R and T. Secure it between the T and the R. Thread the line through the empty holes of the T and add 1x R between them.

Step 4

String 2x T. A small free section of the line will remain between the pair of T twisted to the left and the right. Thread under the line, always from the bottom. Thread the line through the empty holes of the T and add 1x R between them.

Step 5

Do not twist the beginning of the band. Hold it fixed in the same position. Add 2x T and 1x R on the other side as in Step 4. Thread under the line, also from the bottom (if you change the direction of stringing, the bracelet will start to twist, probably in a spiral).

Step 6

Continue alternating Steps 4 and 5. There are 24 pairs of T on both sides.

Step 7

String 6x R. Secure them on the line between a pair of T. Thread the line through them one more time. Thread the line through both holes of the T and R at the last pair of T. Sew it in and cut it off. Attach the clasp to the R loops using the rings.

Step 8

The necklace


Sew two bands of 29 pairs of T along both sides. One should be sewn as a mirror-image of the other (from the point of view of the twist) from Step 1. Sew them together in the middle. Put 1x H onto an eye pin. Hang it in the centre using a ring. Attach the fastening. Attach both links of the 16 cm adjusting chain to one end using a ring. Attach a carabiner to the other side using two rings.

Step 9

The earrings


You can create simple earrings by linking an H to a hook. Or try sewing the bands and attach them to a metal arch. The bands consist of 5 pairs of T. Also add 1x T at each end.
