Today we will make another bracelet based on the technique of beaded spiral rope that we've already used before.
But if for the previous bracelet we used two different sizes of seed beads, now we will use the seed beads of one size only. Also we will take a different quantity of beads, and therefore the final version of the bracelet, despite a similar technique, will be significantly different from the previous one.
We will need:
- seed beads of two colors; I used seed beads #10 of green and yellow colors,
- nylon thread and a beading needle,
- clasp for a bracelet.
Take a nylon thread with a needle at one of its ends. The length of the thread depends on the size of the bracelet. So I recommend to take the thread of a convenient length (about 1 meter). As soon as it becomes too short you should fasten it passing through several beads and tying a knot. Then take a new thread, weave it into the bracelet and then continue weaving using this new segment of thread.
String onto the thread 1 yellow bead and place it about 20 cm from the free end of the thread.
Pass the needle through this bead from the free end of the thread.
Tighten the thread - we've got the tension bead. It helps the free end of the thread not to decrease during the process of weaving.
String onto the thread 4 yellow and 3 green beads. Move the set of beads close to the tension bead.
Pass the needle through 4 last added yellow beads starting from the free end of the thread (excluding the tension bead).
Tighten the thread.
String onto the thread 1 yellow and 3 green beads.
Pass the needle through the last 4 yellow beads in direction from the free end of the thread.
Tighten the thread.
Then repeat Step 3 as many times as it is necessary for making a bracelet of the required length. Tighten the thread after each step to ensure the weaving to be tight.
As a result, we've got a spiral rope as follows:
After that attach the clasp. String onto the thread 7 green beads
and pass the needle through the last yellow bead from its reverse side.
Then pass the needle through the nearest 4 of the last added green beads.
String a clasp onto the needle and pass the needle from the reverse side through the bead from which the thread is coming out at the moment.
Fix the thread passing it through several beads and tying a knot. Then cut the thread off.
In the same way attach another clasp at the other end of the bracelet. Preliminarily remove the tension bead that was made in the very beginning.
Our bracelet is finished!
P.S. You can also make these earrings and get a beaded jewelry set made of spiral rope.
