Learn how to make this Garden Trellis Bracelet using stunning Swarovski bicones and our brand new Miyuki Tila beads!

Step 1

Attach a stopper bead to a workable length of thread, approx. 20-30" long.

Step 2

Leave an 8" tail.

Step 3

We will refer to the gold seed beads as A and the green seed beads as B. 

Step 4

Thread through 3 A's, 3 B's, 4 A's, 1 bicone, 4A's and 3 B's. 

Step 5

Stitch down through the first 3 A beads you added to make a droplet shape. 

Step 6

Pick up 1A, 1 tila bead, 4A and 3B. 
Thread up through the A beads after the bicone. Thread on 1 A. 

Step 7

Thread on another bicone, 4 A, 3 B.
Thread down through the first 3 A's next to your first tila bead, leaving the A seed bead closest to the tila. 

Step 8

Thread on 1 A, 1 tila, 4 A, 3 B.
Pass up through the first 3 A beads you come to next to your 2nd bicone added, missing the 4th seed bead next to the bicone. 

Step 9

Repeat this pattern until the chain reaches the desired length with space left for a 2cm clasp. 

Step 10

Thread on 6 A's and create a loop. 

Step 11

Attach a stop bead to a new length of thread. 

Step 12

Thread through 3A's, 3B's, 4A's, 1 bicone, 4A's and 3B's. Thread down through the first 3A's to form a droplet shape. 

Step 13

Pick up 1A and thread through the first tila on the previous chain on the lower half. 

Step 14

Repeat the pattern in the same way as the upper half of your bracelet, missing out adding the new tila bead and instead, threading through the other hole on the tila beads you already have on your bracelet. 

Step 15

Finish your bracelet with another 6 A beads and secure this as a loop on the end of your bracelet.
This, and the 6 seed beads at the other end of your bracelet is where your clasp will attach. 

Step 16

Secure and knot your thread. 

Step 17

Attach a jumpring to each end of your bracelet and add a lobster clasp to one of these. 

Step 18

Thread any tails into your work to secure and hide them.
