  • How to make a bracelet. Seascape Bracelet - Step 1
    Step 1

    Stop bead
    Prepare your needle with about 250cm of nymo loom thread. Make a stop bead by threading on 1 size 8 rocaille moving it to about 25cm from the end of your thread. Loop round and pass your needle through the rocaille again. Pull tight.

    Chevron Stitch
    Pick up 2 size 11 rocailles. The next beads you add will be the start of your chevron chain. Pick up 1 size 8 and 2 size 11 rocailles. Repeat twice more.

    To form your first triangle pass your needle back through the second size 8 rocaille you added i.e. the start of your chevron chain.
    Pick up 2 size 11 rocailles, 1 size 8 and 2 more size 11. Go back through the last size 8 rocaille you added on your first triangle. This will form your second triangle. Continue in this way, i.e. adding 2 size 11 rocailles, 1 size 8 and 2 more size 11 rocailles and passing through the last size 8 rocaille added on the previous triangle, until your bracelet is long enough. DO NOT trim the thread.

    Fastener
    To make your fastener you can use any beads you like as long as you include a large 1 for your fastening loop to go round.
    Pick up several rocailles followed by 1 large bead. Pick up a few more beads of your choice ending with a small rocaille. Pass your thread back down all the beads apart from the last rocaille you added. Weave back through the bracelet base, knotting in-between beads to secure. Trim off any excess.

    Fastener Loop
    Attach your needle to the 25cm thread you made at the start of your bracelet. To make your end loop fastener pick up enough size 11 rocailles to loop round your large fastening bead. Pass your needle back through the beads on the last side on the last triangle you made on the bracelet. As you did with the
    fastener, weave back through the bracelet base, knotting in-between beads to secure. Trim off any excess.

    Tassels
    Prepare your needle with 300cm of thread. Weave through a few beads on the bracelet base, knotting in-between beads to secure. Weave through to the first large (size) rocaille on 1 side of the bracelet.
    To make a tassel, pick up 1 bead of your choice from your mixed glass beads, followed by 1 rocaille (any colour and size). Skip the rocaille and thread back down through the glass bead. Weave through the bracelet base to the first large rocaille on the opposite side and repeat the process. Continue all the way along the bracelet, weaving from 1 side to the other and adding tassels. Finish off as before by weaving back through the bracelet base and knotting in between beads as you go. Trim off excess thread.
