Aug. 8th, 2010 @ 08:32 pm [Tutorial] Crystal Bracelet #19
Tutorial : Crystal Bracelet #19
Level : Beginner
Technique : Cross-weaving








Equipment
- Crystal Bicone 4mm.
- Seed bead 11/o
- Nylon thread no. 20
- Clasp and jumprings

I use small thread here because it needs to pass through some seed beads for three times.

1.



Cut the nylon thread around 150 - 200 cm. String three seed beads as a start. Add one crystal to each side of thread. Cross both threads at a seed bead (red arrow).

2.



Add one crystal to both sides. Cross both threads at three seed beads (red arrow).

3.



Now, we add three seed beads to both threads. Cross both threads at the three seed beads that we first started our bracelet (red arrow).

4.



Add one crystal to each side. Cross the threads at a seed bead (red arrow).

5.



Add one crystal to each side. Cross both threads at three seed beads (red arrow).

6.



Add three seed beads to one thread. Put that thread into the previous three seed beads (red arrow).

7.



Cross both threads at the new three seed beads (blue arrow). I'm sorry I forgot to take a closer photo here.

9.



Add three seed beads to the top thread. Put that thread into the previous three seed beads (red arrow).

10.



Cross both threads at the new three seed beads (red arrow). Again, sorry for not taking a closer photos.

11.

12.



Add three seed bead to the left thread. Put that thread into the three seed beads (red arrow).

I believe you get the idea how to weave this bracelet now. Try mixing different colors or patterns and see the outcome.

13.



Finally, add jumprings and your favorite clasp.



Since I use a small thread, the bracelet turned out quite flexible. So I cut the new thread and tighten the seed beads base one more time.

If you have any problem, feel free to let me know.
Happy Beading ♥
