Information about this project
Designed by: Joanne Lockwood
We will refer to the darker orange seed beads as A and the lighter orange seed beads as B. Please use the diagrams provided to help you understand the pattern.
Cut a workable amount of thread, approx. 40-50" will do. This bracelet does not stretch, so you may wish to replace the cord with elastic thread of the same width.
Thread on 1 tila bead, 1 bugle, 1 tila, 1 A seed bead, 1 B seed bead, 1 A seed bead.
Thread through the second hole on the tila to create a picot. Pick up a bugle bead and pass through the second hole of the first tila you added.
Thread on another A, B and A.
Tie a double knot with the tail that is coming out of the first tila bead you added.
Pass your working thread through this tila bead.
Thread up through the left hole of a new tila bead and back down the first tila's right hole to secure them together.
Thread up through the left hole again and thread on A,B,A.
Thread down the right hole of this tila bead.
Thread on a bugle, another tila, an A, B, A and come up through the left hole on the most recent tila bead.
Thread around the tila bead next to this one to secure the two next to each other (like in step 6)
Thread on a bugle bead, pass through the left hole on the 3rd tila bead you added, and down the right hole.
Repeat this pattern until your bracelet is the desired length with allowance for your 1" clasp.
Pick up 5 seed beads. Skip the bugle bead and pass down through the right hole of the end tila on the bottom row.
Skipping the picots, weave back through until you exit the 2nd tila's left hole on the top row above the bugle.
Pick up an A, 1xmontee, A.
Pass down through the right hole of the 3rd tila in on the bottom row.
Skip the peyote and pass up through the left side of this tila bead.
Pick up an A and pass through the montee.
Pick up another A and pass up through the right hole of the 3rd tila on the top row.
Again, skipping the picots, pass through the next tila bead by threading down the right, up left, then thread down the tila next to the one you just threaded through.
Repeat the steps to include another montee inbetween every other tila bead. See image.
At the end of your bracelet, pick up 5 seed beads, skip the bugle beads and pass down the right hole of the end tila on the bottom row. Secure this to your bracelet with knots. Trim this thread.
Repeat at the other end of the bracelet with the tail of thread.
Connect 2 jumprings to the loop of 5 seed beads to attach your lobster clasp to.
Connect a single jumpring to the opposite end of the bracelet to complete the clasp.
