I love beads and I like simple solutions. Therefore, I would like to share with you my way of making a zigzag bracelet. There are tons of zigzag versions on the internet. I love the Tile beaded model the most. Therefore, I will show you how to make a zigzag bracelet of beads.

Materials required:

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.

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

Step 1

Cut an arms span of thread. Add a stopper bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Now we start threading the first part of the bracelet. Thread a Tile Bead and the sequence TOHO (T) - Crystalove (C) - T - TILE

Step 1

Step 3

Now we thread a longer sequence of 4 CrystaLove "postponed" Toho. T - C - T - C - T - C - T- C - T

Step 1

Step 4

Both sequences alternately - short and long - are threaded until the desired length is achieved. Remember that the bracelet must be a bit longer because zigzagging it will shorten it. The bracelet must end and start with a Tile bead. I have a total of 9 Tile beads.

Step 1

Step 5

We thread 5 T 11/0 and stick to the hole next to it. WARNING! You can make 2 small eyelets on each side or at the end you can make one bigger connecting outer Tile holes. It is up to you

Step 1

Step 6

We add another row. We will be adding one Toho and CrystaLove bead less under the wider sequence. In a shorter sequence - one Toho and CrystaLove bead more. Just like in the pictures. We have the beginnings of a zigzag

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 7

We take off the stopper and tie the knot on the Tile bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 8

We stick with a Tile needle in the hole at the narrowest sequence. As in the picture. And we turn around by passing through the hole next to it.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 9

If we decided to have two small stitches on one side, then we thread 5 Toho and pass through Tile again the same way. If you do one big at the end, you go straight to the next step. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 10

We add the Tile bead. To do this, thread it on a thread and pass the needle through the bead next to it, but from the bottom. 

And once again we hit the new, just added Tile.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 11

And just like before, where we extend the zigzag we add one more Toho and one CrystaLove. And where we narrow one Toho and one CrystaLove less. We translate by adding a new Tile, but I'll show you how.

Step 1

Step 12

Once we have the first sequence and the Tile bead we need to sew both adjacent Tile together. We will do it in the same way as when we added the first "square". We stick from the bottom to the adjacent Tile bead from the first row. We pass from the bottom. 

Step 1

Step 13

And we convert by passing into the newly added square from the top.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 14

And we keep doing this. We add the Tile and Toho sequences for a narrowing and widening change and sew the added Tile together.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 15

Our bracelet should look like this.

Step 1

Step 16

We thread 5 Toho to make a loop. I go through each loop twice to make it stronger.

Step 1

Step 17

We do the last row. We add one Toho and one CrystaLove bead more where we expanded. And where we narrowed one less. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 18

The bracelet looks like this. When you have decided on one larger loop to fasten, now you can make them by walking around the circumference with a thread and adding the right amount of Toho on the tops. 

Step 1

Step 19

I'm making the last loop with Toho. I go through it twice. I make a knot on the thread between the beads and pass the circumference of the bracelet with the remaining thread. Finally, I make a knot and cut off the minimal residue. At the beginning, with a short thread, I also walk around the circumference as much as possible. 

Step 1

Step 20

You almost know how to make a zigzag bracelet. You need to mount fasteners. You can mount two or just like me one. 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 21
