The bracelet is created using the so-called "four-bead" technique“.
|Step 1: |
String R6, Rip, R6, Rip, R6, Rip and 1xR6 onto a line which is about 1.5 m long.
Move the stringing to the middle of the line. String R6, 1x Rip and R6 onto one end of the line and thread the second end through them in the opposite direction.
String 1x R6, 1x Rip and 1x R6 onto each end of the line. String another trio of 1x R6, 1x Rip and 1x R6 onto one of the ends and thread the second end through them in the opposite direction. Repeat this step one more time.
Repeat the second step until the bracelet reaches the required length.
String 5x R11 onto each of the ends. String 1xR8 onto one of the ends and thread the second end through it in the opposite direction.
String 2x R11 onto each end. Then string a further 2x R11 onto one end and thread the second end through them in the opposite direction. Thread both ends of the line back through a few rocailles and tie a firm knot which you should then dot with superglue so that it does not later come undone.
Connect the fastening with the connecting ring or sew it on using an R11. Attach the second part of the fastening in a similar way.
