PRECIOSA Pinch Beads 14x - a bracelet made using a mixture of materials
A strong, smooth 0.3 – 0.5 mm polyester, linen or cotton thread; flexible rubber earring stops (ES)
Scissors; a thin line; a thin tailor's sewing thread; a ruler
Cut off about 15 cm of thin tailor's thread. Thread the eye of the needle. Tie off the ends of the thread. Create a large loop. You will pass the strong thread through it.
The line is threaded through the ES 2x after the completion of the bracelet. The ES should slide, but not be overly loose. They are supposed to hold the bracelet in a specific place. As such, first try out how they behave when stringing the necklace. You will have to thread three strands of thread through the ES (the thread with the stringing and the folded thread in the large loop). Beware of piercing the thread with the stringing.
Cut off about 40 cm of the strong thread. Tie a knot on one end.
String 1x P and 2x ES.
String about 14 – 15 cm of material (26x P) or adjust the length to your requirements.
Thread the line through the ES for the second time.
String 1x P. Tie a knot. Cut off any excess thread. Once the bracelet has been tightened, the knots at the end of the thread should be located 3.5 – 4 cm from the ES.
Try stringing the bracelet from a mixture of materials. If you want a regular stringing, first string the material and the ES. Adapt the length. Connect the ends at the ES. Then finish the ends of the thread. In the illustration: 1x FPB at the beginning and the end, then 1x P, 1x FPB, 1x R6, 1x FPB and 1x P, repeat this group 6x and string 1x R10 between them.
