Jul. 25th, 2009 @ 09:28 pm [Tutorial] Crystal Bracelet #16
Tutorial : Crystal Bracelet #16
Level : Intermediate




Heavy pictures under cut. It takes many steps to complete the bracelet.





The design is from Thai Crystal Book.

Equipment :
- Swarovski Bicone Crystal 4 mm.
- Seed Bead 11/0
- Nylon Thread
- Clasp and Jumprings

Here I use three colors in brown shade.

1.



Cut the nylon thread around 200 cm. Make a ring of nine seed beads. You can start the bracelet differently from me by using bead tip.

2.



Add one seed bead to each thread. Cross both threads at a seed bead.

3.



Add seven seed beads to the right thread. Add one crystal and one seed bead to the left thread. Cross both threads at a crystal (red arrow).

4.



Pick up the left thread. Add two seed beads, one crystal and one seed bead.

5.



Put the thread back into the crystal (red arrow).

6.



Add one seed bead, one crystal and one seed bead.

7.



Put the thread back into the crystal (red arrow). Add one new seed bead (blue arrow). Put the thread into the seed bead (green arrow).

8.



Now you will have five seed beads for the flower. Put the thread into all five seed beads to make them more tight (red highlight). The thread will be out from the seed bead I point with red arrow.

9.



Add one crystal to the above thread. Add one crystal, one seed bead, and one crystal to the other thread. Cross both threads at a seed bead (red arrow).

10.



Add one seed bead, one crystal and one seed bead to the above thread.

11.



Put the thread back into the crystal (red arrow).

12.



Continue adding one seed bead, one crystal and one seed bead.

13.



Put the thread back into the crystal (red arrow).

14.



Continue adding one new seed bead (red arrow) to the same thread. Cross both threads at a seed bead (blue arrow). You can put any thread back into the five seed beads to connect them together (red highlight).

15.



Add one new crystal to the right thread (blue arrow). Put the left thread into the crystal (red arrow) and add seven seed beads. Cross both threads at a new seed bead (green arrow).

16.



Add one seed bead to each thread and cross both threads at a seed bead (red arrow).

Repeat step 2 to 15.



I hope you like it. Happy beading!

This is so beautiful! I can't wait to gather some materials and try it myself.

I'd like to also compliment your instructions and especially your photographs -- the pictures are so clear! It really makes projects like this a lot less intimidating. :)

This is the cover of the book with this bracelet.



But I'm afraid it will be a bit hard to find it outside Thailand.

This is the thread I used with all my crossweaving bracelet. I got them locally (maybe it's local brand or from China). If you can't find it, try Beadalon Supplemax (soft illusion cord/cordon monofilament). It's the same.

nylon

But for this bracelet, you can use fireline too. :D
