Step 1

On the thread we thread 7 x Toho 15/0 and one NIB-BIT bead, we insert the needle into the hole in the thicker part.

Step 1

Step 2

And we thread through the hole from the thinner side of NIB-BIT.

Step 1

Step 3

We also go through all toho 15/0 and thread into the second nib-bit hole

Step 1

Step 4

We go back through to strengthen the loop.

Step 1

Step 5

The thread comes out of  the thicker side NIB_BIT (that's important).

Step 1

Step 6

Now follow the sequence Toho 11 – NIB-BIT (thicker side) – Toho 11 – NIB-BIT(thicker side) -TOHO 11 – NIB-BIT (thicker side)

Step 1

Step 2

Step 7

This time we will stick to the narrower side nib-bit and we will add Toho 15/0

Toho-NB-Toho-NB-Toho-NB

Step 1

Step 2

Step 8

And we're going to take that sequence in turns.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 9

For me, it's a total of 11 sequences. Remember that the bracelet will make a zigzag so you have to have about 2 sequences more as you will adjust. Also try to finish on the same sequence i.e. on small or large Toho.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 10

We thread 7 Toho 15 and make a loop by sticking into the hole next to it. Just like at the beginning we  go through the loop 2 times.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 11

If we finished on the Toho 11 on the bracelet then we now take the Toho 15/0 and poke into the NIB-BIT bead next to it.

Now where we had Toho 11/0 we will add 15/0, and where there were 15 we will add 11.

Step 1

Step 12

And we add 2 more beads 15/0. The bracelet begins to wave.

Step 1

Step 13

Now we add beads 11/0 because in the neighborhood they have 15/0, the wave takes shape.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 14

Remember to add 15/0 11/0 and vice versa – where we add 11/0 15/0. Effortlessly, a lovely wave will appear. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 15

When we get to the end, we can tie 2 threads together, but do not cut the thread just yet. We pass the thread back through the bracelet making knots as you go along the design and cut the thread. 

Step 1

Step 16

We also do not cut the shorter thread, but thread it back through bracelet making knots and then cut the thread. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 17

We attach the clasp onto the bracelet using a jump ring. Attach one jump ring on the other end. 

Step 1

Step 18
