Designed by: Alicja Czapla
The whole handicrafts world has gone nuts for fine, beaded bracelets and that’s not surprising. They are adorable, they can be worn all the time and they are perfect for any occasion. Alicja Czapla has decided to put her yarns away for a moment and get back to beads to show you how to make these lovely bracelets. We are fascinated with these bracelets and we are sure you will also love them! So let’s begin!
Supplies used in this project:
We will use size 11/0 TOHO Treasure beads in 1-9 steps.
String 2 beads.
Pass the needle through the beads strung once again.
Place the beads so that they sit next to each other and tie a knot.
Now we will add the beads. String 1 bead and, if the thread comes out of the top of the previous bead, pass the needle up through the bead you exited.
We’ve got 3 beads and the thread comes out of the middle one. Pass the needle so that the thread comes out of the last bead.
String 1 bead and, if the thread comes out at the bottom of the last bead, pass the needle up through the bead.
And again, pass the needle so that the thread comes out of the last bead.
Continue adding the beads until you have reached the desired length (I used the wrist circumference). Later, as you add the clasp it will be 10-15 mm longer.
The thread doesn’t need to come out of the last bead.
From now on we will work with 15/0 TOHO beads only. Attach the clasp. String 3 beads, the clasp and again 3 beads and pass the needle through the last bead to make a loop. Pass the needle through the loop once again.
We will make picots now. The thread should come out of the last TOHO Treasure bead, right there where the clasp was attached. String 3 15/0 TOHO and pass the needle through the next bead.
String 3 beads and pass the needle through the bead, as shown in the picture.
Pass the needle so that the thread comes out of the 1st bead – the one with no picot.
and repeat the 11 and 12th step.
Continue until you have reached the last bead.
Now we need to make a loop to attach the second part of the clasp.
String 9 beads and pass the needle through the bead, as shown in the picture.
Pass the needle through this loop once again, tie a knot and hide it between the beads.
The bracelet is finished. Now you know how to make a fine bracelet using TOHO Treasure beads.
So now you can create your own bracelets! We can imagine how colourful they are going to be. Oh, they’re going to be really beautiful. Each of them different, each of them unique! We want to admire your bracelets with you on our Facebook group.

"Just used my new kumihimo handle and weighted bobbins and they are great. My kumihimo has never been so neat and the thread/ weave so tight. It's great."
