In this tutorial, we will refer to the white seed beads as Colour B and the blue as colour A. This can be applied to your own choice of seed beads.
To begin this bracelet, cut approximately 5 feet of your invisible cord. Thread on one seed bead of either colour and thread it to the middle point of your cord. Pull both ends of the cord through a 6mm (approx.) glass pearl and push to the bottom.
From here, thread on 2 Colour A onto the 'right' strand of cord, and 1 onto the 'left' strand of cord. Pass the left cord through the last bead added on the right strand of cord and pull tight. Repeat this once.
Thread on 1 x Colour A bead and 4 x colour B beads onto the right hand strand of cord. Push to the bottom and loop the cord back through the first added colour B bead in an 'O' shape. Pull tight. This should form a loose cross shape. Repeat this exact step on the left hand cord.
Thread on 2 Colour A onto the 'right' strand of cord, and 1 onto the 'left' strand of cord. Pass the left cord through the last bead added on the right strand of cord and pull tight. Repeat this once.
Continue the above pattern until your bracelet is the desired length.
To create your clasp to finish, thread approximately 20 seed beads onto the right hand side of the cord.
Pull the left hand side cord back through all of these seed beads. Pinch tightly and check that your clasp bead (pearl) fits through the seeded loop. Do not force it. If it doesn't go through easily, go back and add more seeds until the right tension is created with the clasp loop.
Pull and double knot to finish. Carefully trim the cord. You may wish to add a dab of clear nail varnish to keep the knots secure.
