Step 1

At the beginning, we cut the longest piece of thread on which you can work. Take a TH11 / 0 bead on the needle and make a stopper bead with it. 

Step 1

Step 2

We thread GD beads on the needle alternately with TH8 / 0 beads. 

I threaded 29 GD Beads. This amount is suitable for a wrist with a circumference of 16 cm. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Starting from the GD bead, take 3 TH11 / 0 beads and pass into the second hole of the GD bead. 

Step 1

Step 4

Now we add a second colour, between the beads of the previous row. I will have 28 of them.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 5

We now take 3 TH11/0 beads and a GD bead in the new colour. We pass into the bottom hole of the first bead of the previous row.

Step 1

Step 6

And with the new colour we add 29 GD beads.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 7

Thread 3 TH11 / 0 beads again. We pass into the bottom hole of the GD bead from the previous row and add a new colour. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 8

Now we are going to make a colour reflection of our bracelet. We take 2TH11 / 0 -> TH8 / 0 -> 2TH11 / 0 and the GD bead. We pass into the bottom hole of the (white in my case) GD bead. 

Continue to the end of the row. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 9

Take 3 TH11 / 0 beads again. 

And again we're adding a new colour.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 10

This is the last row of GD beads. We thread 3 TH11/0 beads and a GD bead. 

And we add the last 29 GD beads.

We thread 3 TH11 / 0 beads. We pass into the bottom hole of the GD bead and finally add TH8 / 0 beads. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 11

It's time to finish. You can see that our bracelet has small gaps in TH11 / 0 beads. We thread 3 such beads and pass into the adjacent ones. Repeat the manoeuvre until the end.

Now we have to go to the other end of the bracelet. Go over the top row with the same thread (the one with TH8 / 0 beads). Try not to tighten it too tightly, because then the bracelet will pucker.

We add 3 TH11 / 0 beads, then 2TH11 / 0 -> TH8 / 0 -> 2TH11 / 0 and again 3 TH11 / 0 beads. 


Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 12

Pass the thread only through our ends to make them stronger.
