Czechmates Tile beads, Crystalove crystals, TOHO beads ... from this something must be created :)! We invite you to a beading tutorial prepared by Roksana, which will show you how to make a bracelet with Tile beads, not difficult to make, but very effective. We will sew the bracelet with two needles, so let's start! 

Materials needed to make a 19cm bracelet:

CzechMates or Preciosa Tile beads  - about 20 pieces 
Bicone crystals - 3mm Crystalove - about 20 pieces
Round crystals - 4mm - about 20 pieces
Toho beads - size 11/0
Jewellery Thread - e.g. One-G in a colour matching the beads
Lobster Clasp - 12 mm - 1 piece
Jump rings - 8mm - 2 pieces.
Jewellery Needles - John James in size 10 -13 (2 pieces)
You will also need sharp scissors and jewellery pliers. 

Our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery! <3

Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'.

Step 1

We will sew our work using 2 needles. We thread the needles on both ends of the thread (about 120 cm). 

Step 1

Step 2

Thread 7 TR 11 beads onto one of the needles. Pull the beads to the centre of the thread. The same needle goes through all 7 beads and another TR 11 so that the threads come out of the same bead in opposite directions.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 3

Then thread one TR 11 bead onto one thread, and the same onto the other thread. Then we add the Czechmates bead.

Step 1

Step 4

Repeat the procedure until you get the right length of the bracelet (in my case it is 20 Czechmates beads).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 5

Thread one TR 11 bead onto one of the needles and pass the second needle through the same bead so that the threads come out in two different directions.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

Take 3 TR 11 beads on each of the threads and go through them crosswise (i.e. with the right needle we go through the beads on the left and with the left needle we go through the beads on the right).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 7

We also go through the middle bead TR 11 and the next (from the right and left sides).

Step 1

Step 2

Step 8

Now we will deal with sewing Czechmates beads. We will start from the right side of our work. Take 5 TR 11 beads on the needle and go through the nearest TR 11 bead. Repeat until the end of the right side.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 9

On the other hand, we do exactly the same thing, i.e. pick up 5 TR 11 beads and go through the nearest TR 11 bead. And so until the end of our work.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 10

We also go through the middle TR 11 bead and another 4 TR 11 beads.

Step 1

Step 11

Now we take 1 TR 11 bead, 1 CrystaLove round 4mm bead and TR 11 bead, and go through the middle TR 11 bead, i.e. the third TR 11 bead.

Step 1

Step 12

One by one we take 1 TR 11 bead, 1 bicone 3mm bead and 1 TR 11 bead. We go through the middle TR 11 bead, i.e. the third TR11 bead. This way we add a CrystaLove round 4mm bead once, bicone 3mm - until the end of our bracelet.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 13

We do the same on the other hand. (see points 10 to 12)

Step 1

Step 2

Step 14

At the end of our work, we secure our thread by several knots. We cut the remaining thread.

Step 1

Step 15

Our bracelet is almost ready. Just attach the jump rings and the clasp to the ends.
