- Miyuki Tila (58 - 66 pcs, depend on how long you want, 6 inches WITHOUT clasp used 62 pcs., #2008 Matte Met Patina Iris)

- Beading thread (I use KO because it's the only green thread I have. lol. You can use fireline or nymo D)

The bracelet will not stretch. That's why I don't try to make bangle from this design. You may try it if you want. :-)

1.

051

On the comfortable length of thread, pick up tila, bugle, tila, SB1, SB2 and SB1).

2.

052

Pass through the other hole of the tila (red arrow). Pick up bugle and pass through the free hole of the first tila. Pick up SB1, SB2 and SB1.

3.

053

Tie double knot with the tail. Pass through tila (red arrow).

4.

054

Sew up through the left hole of the new tila and down through the right hole of the first tila. They will sit side by side.

Sew up through the left hole of the tila we just added (red arrow). Pull your thread.

5.

055

Pick up SB1, SB2 and SB1. Pass down through the right hole of the tila.

6.

056

Pick up tila, SB1, SB2 and SB1. Sew up through the left hole of the tila.

7.

057

Sew down through the right hole of the other tila and up through the tila we just added. They will sit side by side. Pull your thread.

8.

058

Pick up bugle and pass through the left hole of the tila.

Sew down through the right hole of the tila (red arrow).

9.

060

Repeat step 4 - 8 to your desired length. Again, my 6 inches base without clasp used 31 sets (62 tila) and the bracelet will shrink a bit when you add embellishment at the next step. But if you're not sure, do not worry, you can add more base at the end.

10.

061

Pick up SB2, SB3, SB2, SB3 and SB2. Sew down through the left hole of the tila at the opposide (red arrow).

11.

062

Pass through the right hole of the same tila (red arrow). Pick up SB2 and SB3 and pass through the middle seed bead of the five we just added (blue arrow).

12.

063

Pick up SB3 and SB2 and pass through the left hole of the tila (red arrow).

Sew down through the right hole of the next tila (blue arrow).

13.

064

Repeat step 10 - 12 to add X above the bugle beads. When you're done, you should exit at the left hole of the tila.

14.

065

Sew down through the right hole of the tila (red arrow).

15.

066

Pass through the next five seed beads and exit at the SB2 before the tila (red arrow).

16.

067

Pick up 15/0 and pass through SB2 and SB3 (red arrow).

17.

068

Pick up pearl and pass through SB3 of the next X (red arrow) and exit at the next SB2 before tila.

18.

069

Pick up 15/0 and pass through the next SB2 and SB3 (red arrow)

19.

070

Pick up pearl and pass through SB3 of the next X. Exit your thread at the next SB2 before tila (red arrow).

20.

071

Repeat step 16 - 19.

Exit your thread at the SB3 (red arrow).

21.

072

Pass through the next three seed beads and exit at the SB2 before tila (red arrow).

22.

073

Pick up 15/0 and pass through the next two seed beads, pearl and SB3 and SB2 of the next X (red arrow). Pull your thread.

23.

074

Pick up 15/0 and pass through the next two seed beads, pearl and SB3 and SB2 of the next X (red arrow). Pull your thread.

Repeat step 22 - 23.

24.

075

You can add your clasp as your wish. Make your own beaded clasp or whatever. If you follow all my previous tutorials, you will know that I like to make the ring of beads to hang the jumpring and clasp separately, rather than to sew the clasp directly to your beadwork. Again, you can do as you wish. :-)

Exit your thread at the left hole of tila, pick up SB2, pearl, SB2 pearl and SB2. Sew up through the other tila. Sew to your beads and reinforce your path if necessary.

076

The gold bracelet in the photo is my first experiment of this design. The only different is how I add 15/0, I passed only to SB3. The beads will look more cluster in the middle.

If you have any question, just let me know. Happy beading!
