How to make a Herringbone Bracelet with SuperDuo™ beads - Jewellery Making Tutorial

Be sure to see how you can easily make a herringbone bracelet from SuperDuo beads. A delicate bracelet made of colourful beads is a hit that will delight the most demanding handicraftsmen because it will suit any summer styling, and thanks to the fact that it is made quickly, you will definitely make many colour combinations. Paula will guide you step by step until the very end, and with her guidance it is very pleasant to create.

Due to a twist of fate in March, I am excluded from crocheting for a while. But despite the injury, I can handle the needle quite well. So as you probably guessed, we're going to be knitting something beaded. Recently there were sunflower earrings, now we will do something for the hand. The course is simple and perfect for people who are just starting their adventure with beading.

Step 1

Cut a long piece of thread, the longest you can work on and thread it on a needle.

About 15 cm before the end of the thread, we add a stopper bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Thread the 2xTH11 / 0 + TH8 / 0 + 2xTH11 / 0 + SD + TH11 / 0 + SD bead and make a round through all the beads minimum 2 times.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

The thread should come out of the bottom hole of the SD bead.

Step 1

Step 4

We go to the upper hole and thread the SD + TH11 / 0 + SD and pass into the upper hole of the SD bead.

Step 1

Step 5

Again, pick up SD + TH11 / 0 + SD and pass into the upper hole of the second SD bead below. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

Pass through the top hole of the SD now sitting above. Pick up SD + TH11 / 0 + SD.

Step 1

Step 7

Continue in this manner until your bracelet is your desired length.

(Don't forget to allow for the clasp and jump rings to finish).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 8

As you probably noticed, the bracelet "flies" a bit. Do not worry, when we get to the end, we will re-enforce the entire length and the bracelet will strengthen and even out

Are you already at the perfect length?

Step 1

Step 9

Pick up the sequence TH11 / 0 + TH8 / 0 + TH11 / 0 and pass into the SD bead.

Step 1

Step 10

Finally, we will add the clasp into the TH8 / 0 bead. Reinforce the tip by passing through it again with only thread. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 11

And we finish. Now we will go through the entire length of the bracelet with the thread itself. By following the snake, we will add the thread where it was missing (as in the photos). 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 12

Have you come to the end?

Step 1

Step 13

Now we hide and secure the threads in our needlework. 

Step 1

Step 14

Using pliers, add a jump ring to each end.

Add a clasp to one end, and an extra jump ring with a charm of your choice to the other.
