Tutorial : Rorolina
Level : Beginner


003



This is a very easy bracelet using right angle weave and netting. You make each piece and connect them together into the bracelet or necklace. Or you can make a ring or pendant from each piece too.

002

Equipment
- Pearl or round beads 6mm. (Swarovski Platinum pearl 6mm.)
- Czech fire polished 4mm. (Amethyst Luster)
- Crystal bicone 3mm. (Violet AB2X)
- Seed beads 11/0 (Galvanized Silver)
- Seed beads 15/0 (Silverlined Purple)
- KO beading thread or nymo or your favorite thread
- Needle
- Clasp and jumprings

Rorolina is a alchemist from the video game Atelier series (PS3).

1.

005

Cut the thread around 25 inches. Pick up one 11/0 seed bead and one 6mm pearl. Repeat another three times for the total of eight beads. Sew to the first 11/0 seed bead (red arrow). Sew to all the beads twice for good tension. Don't cut the tail.

2.

006

Pick up one 4mm czech , one 11/0 seed bead and one 4mm czech. Sew to the first 11/0 seed bead (red arrow). Continue to the next 6mm pearl and 11/0 seed bead (blue arrows).

3.

007

Repeat step 2 three times around the piece. At the end, exit at the first 11/0 seed bead (red arrow).

4.

008

Pick up six 11/0 seed beads. Skip the pearl and weave to the next 11/0 seed bead (red arrow).

5.

009

Repeat step 4 three times. At the end, exit at the first 11/0 seed bead (red arrow).

6.

010

Weave to the next three 11/0 seed beads. Pick up 15/0 seed bead and weave to the next two 11/0 seed beads.

7.

011

Pick up one 15/0 seed bead and weave to the second and third 11/0 seed beads of the next arc (red arrows).

8.

012

Repeat adding 15/0 to the remaining arcs. At the end, exit at the middle 15/0 seed bead (red arrow). Pull the thread snugly. This will bring the arc to the middle.

9.

013

Pick up 3mm crystal and weave to the middle 15/0 seed bead of the next arc (red arrow).

10.

014

Repeat adding 3mm crystal three times. Weave to all beads in this round twice.

I hope you still have some threads left. We will use it to connect to the next piece.

Repeat from step 1 to 10 to create another piece.

Assembly
Again, you can connect each piece as you like. I just love to connect it in simple way.

1.

015

Exit your thread at the 4mm czech (red arrow). Pick up one 11/0 seed bead, one 3mm crystal and one 11/0 seed bead. Weave to the 4mm czech of the next piece (blue arrow).

2.

016

Weave to the next 6mm pearl and 4mm czech (red arrows). Pick up one 11/0 seed bead, one 3mm crystal and one 11/0 seed bead. Weave to the 4mm czech of the previous piece (blue arrow). Weave to all connecting beads twice for extra security. You can now tie the remaining thread with the tail.

Continue making pieces and connect them together.

Adding clasps
You can make your own beaded toggle and bar or any beaded clasps you like. I always prefer to make a ring of seed beads and use jumprings and clasps.

017

At the end of the bracelet, exit at the 4mm czech. Pick up one 11/0 seed bead, one 3mm crystal, five 11/0 seed beads, one 3mm crystal and one 11/0 seed bead. Weave to the 4mm czech to make a loop. Continue weaving to the next pearl and 4mm czech and weave to all beads twice for extra security.

Add jumpring and clasp.

004

Finish!

And this bright pink is another colors combo. My first try with neon Swarovski pearls.

Hope you like it. Enjoy beading!

I love your bracelets but I'm stymied about the amount of beads to buy. Is there any way you could put the amount of each type of bead used in a project when you list the supplies needed? With seed beads you buy a whole container so that part is easy, but crystals and pearls are more expensive and I have to order them online or drive 50 miles to the closest bead shop. I need to know many crystals and pearls to buy. I usually add up to 5 beads of any type to cover anymishaps and lost beads once I start a project.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll consider it. I admit I'm too lazy to count the beads used. lol And I think I forgot that not every people stock many beads (or run a bead shop like me). So if you need to know the exact number of any tutorial, please ask me, I'll be happy to count them for you. :D

You can count the beads .....they are so visible in the tutorials! Multiply by 7 clusters and you have the amount of pearls, bicones and fire polished beads!
