3 large beads 8-10mm
45 assorted smaller beads
Elastic Jewelry Thread
This bracelet uses two treads to create an entwining design that looks like a masterpiece. The best thing about this design is it's use of assorted and odd beads. We used plastic beads, glass beads and added some jade beads for a rich expensive finish. Cut 2 pieces of elastic thread to desired length of bracelet and add around 15cms for tying off. Holding the 2 pieces together as one tie them through and around 1 of the larger beads to form as a stopper. Separate the threads and add 9 beads to each strand then place the threads together and add a large bead. Separate the threads and add 9 beads to each strand and then place the threads together and add another large bead. Keep doing this one more time until your beads are used up and then finish off by tying the end threads to the knot at the first bead snip the ends and allow the ends to tuck into the large beads so it is invisible. If your 45 beads do not reach the desired length add some extra beads, we used beads ranging from 4-7mms in size. The key to a great bracelet is it's color scheme, pick beads that are on the same color palette for a blended look.
