Procedure

The length of the assembled bracelet is about 17.5 cm. You can adjust the length as required; finish the stringing earlier or otherwise extend it. Always finish the shorter sides with a T2. You can create your own color mix from the T1. It is possible to change the number of shades. The bracelet consists of four interconnected parts, each strung on about 1.10 m of wire. The edges are glued into the clasp.

Step 1

Cut off about 1.10 m of wire. String 2x T2 onto it. Move them into the middle of the wire. Thread one end of the wire through 1x T2 one more time. Always tighten the wire gently, but firmly.

Step 9

The bracelet is edged with 18 arches along the longer sides (9 on each side). The shorter sides are completed with 2x T2. Don't forget to sew in the last T1 and the following T2 one more time. Pull the ends of the wire into the nearest T1 or T2. Put both ends of the wire from the same knot into the same T1 or T2. Snip off any protruding ends of the wire.
