You will need:
Scissors (not pictured)
Beads 157 x 2mm white beads
31 x 2mm blue beads
14x 4mm purple bicone beads
Fishing wire (roughly 1m)
2 x metal loops
|Things you will need...|
Cut a piece of fishing wire (roughly 1 metre-this is probably being a little generous but I prefer having a long piece of wire to work with.) Start by threading 7 2mm white beads onto the fishing wire, move the beads to the middle of the wire so you have equal lengths on either side of the beads. Thread both ends of the fishing wire into another white 2mm bead to create a loop.
Next thread ten 2mm beads onto both ends of fishing wire (five beads on each thread). Then thread both ends into a blue 2mm bead to create another loop. Repeat this pattern until you have used six 2mm blue beads for the bracelet band (or until you have reached the desired length for half the bracelet).
Thread both ends of the fishing wire through a 4mm purple bicone bead to complete the loop. Then thread one purple bead on each of the threads, complete the loop by threading both ends through a blue 2mm bead. Add a purple bead on each end of the fishing wire and then thread both ends through 3 blue beads.
On each end of wire thread one purple bead and complete the loop by threading both ends through a blue bead.
Next add a blue bead to each end of the wire and complete the loop by threading both ends through another blue bead. On one end of the wire thread a white 2mm bead then loop the wire through the blue bead (in the completed loop) and back through the end blue bead. The ends of wire should poke out on either side of the blue bead at the end. (Hopefully the diagram explains this clearer!)
On one piece of the wire thread a purple bicone bead followed by three blue beads, then thread through the previous purple bicone bead and two blue beads, and then through the purple bicone bead you just threaded on. Repeat on the other end of wire. (Again the diagram will hopefully explain this better!)
Then thread both ends through three blue beads.
Then add a purple bead to each piece of wire and complete the loop by threading both ends through a blue bead.
Thread a purple bead to each piece of wire again and then both ends through another purple bead.
Next thread five white beads to each piece of wire and thread both ends through a blue bead. Repeat the process for the bracelet band until you have used up the rest of the 2mm blue and white beads (or to the desired length). Once completed tie a knot and cut the lengths.
Using the pliers gently pull the metal loop until the gap is big enough to thread it onto the end of the bracelet. Do the same to the other end and add the metal clasp, now you have finished!
