Hi.....


I took some pictures of how I make them (see topic tag team bracelets)

I use C-lon thread, 5 pieces from 2 to 2,5 meter
I treat the ends with fray-check ( nail polish doesn't work so good on small bead-holes.)

You start in the middle weaving about 2 inches, make a loop and continue weaving.
I make sets of beads I want to use and pin them as an example om my cork board.... always an uneven number.
8 sets of 9 , and between the beads I make the "8" twice....

I use a C-clamb to attach the cork to the table













I'll show this one when it is finished, but still have to make some more beads for it!!!!


HERE IT IS!!



Make some extra loops at the end



Put your end bead on.. make sure it fits through the loop!!



Put some seed beads on top of that.. make sure the size (of the bracelet) is ok!!!



make a knot, and put glue on it!



Cut the treads and WAIT until the glue has dried  (you better believe me on this one, trial and error does work also.. but then you have to make it all over again!!!!)


THEN BE PROUD AND SHOW OFF!!!!

here is my first effort, what do you think? i don't have a lot of seed beads and so there aren't as many strands as hoped

It's amazing how the effect is so different when using different sizes of beads. I've also made a simple necklace with one hollow as the focal.

Another one finished, no lampwork but I did use up some antique tone metal beads I've had for years.

Just see what works.. You have to put the threat through twice...

I sometimes put in 1 smaller thread, so I can use the smaller seed beads..



This was a present, and my friend was really happy with it.

When I have a few leftovers, I make a pedant for a necklace with them!
