Tutorial : Rikku
Level : Beginner






Rikku is a game character from Final Fantasy X.

Materials:
- Pearl 3mm.
- Pearl 4mm.
- Pearl 6mm.
- Crystal bicone 4mm.
- Seed bead 11/0
- Nylon thread
- Clasp and jumprings

This bracelet is very easy. You just make many squares and connect them together.

1.



Cut the thread around 70-80 cms. String two 11/0 seed beads, one 3mm pearl and two 11/0 seed beads. Cross both threads at a 6mm pearl (red arrow).

2.



Add two 11/0 seed beads to each thread. Cross both threads at a 3mm pearl (red arrow).

3.



Pass your threads back through the two 11/0 seed beads. Add one 3mm pearl. Continue your thread to the next two 11/0 seed beads. Do the same for the other side too. Finally, cross both threads at a 3mm pearl (red arrow).

4.



Pick up one thread, add one crystal, one 11/0 seed bead, one 6mm pearl and one 11/0 seed bead. Cross both threads at a crystal (red arrow).

5.



Put the right thread into the next two 11/0 seed beads (red arrow). Add one 4mm pearl to the left thread. Cross both threads at a crystal (blue arrow).

6.



Put the right thread into the next 3mm pearl (red arrow). For the left thread, add one 11/0 seed bead, one 6mm pearl and one 11/0 seed bead. Cross both threads at a crystal (blue arrow).

7.



Repeat step 5 and 6 all around.

On the final round, after you pass your thread to the two 11/0 seed bead, just pass your thread to the crystal (the first crystal on step 4). Cross both threads at a 4mm pearl. You can string your threads back into the beads if you wish to tighten the square or you can tie the threads together. But don't cut the threads, you can use the remaining threads to connect each square.

Make around 6-7 squares depend on your desired length.

8.



This is how I connect each square together. You use the remaining threads, cross them at the 11/0 seed bead, 4mm pearl and 11/0 seed bead (red arrows). Add one crystal to each thread. Cross the threads to the same beads (11/0 seed bead, 4mm pearl and 11/0 seed bead) of the other square.

Repeat connecting each square the same way.

9.



Add jumpring and your clasp.





And it's done! Easy right? :D

Happy beading!

Hi pet, I just can't get my head around stitching like this, I think I could do it RAW though, couldn't I?

Yes, you can do RAW instead of crossweaving.
