A minimalist bead bracelet is our must have - it will never go out of fashion. It goes with everything and can be combined with other jewellery to create wonderful sets. Monika will show you how to make such a delicate miracle with the method that you may already know from our previous tutorials. Today's post will show you what effects can be achieved by playing only with colours. Believe me - you can really change a lot here by playing only with colours. So never be afraid of experiments. Ready? Let's get Creative!

You can add all the items you need to your basket by clicking the box in the 'Products used' section above, or you can let your imagination run wild and choose your own materials from the links below. Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 


Remember - 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.

Step 1

Thread 8 Toho beads on a thread of more than one meter in the sequence 1 light - 3 dark - 1 light - 3 dark (of course you can choose other colours) 

Step 1

Step 2

We tie a knot to form a bead circle at the end of the thread with one short thread on and one long thread.

Step 1

Step 3

We pass the needle through a light bead and two dark ones so that the thread comes out of the bead as shown in the picture.

From now on, we will pass the needle ONLY through the beads marked with an "X". In the remaining places, we will run the thread under the bead to create vertices. You will see it in the photos.

Step 1

Step 4

According to "X" from the previous photo, first stick to the first light bead.

Step 1

Step 5

We ran the thread under the bead in the middle and a "tip" was created.

Step 1

Step 6

According to the scheme, we skip one bead and stick into the next one.

Step 1

Step 7

And again, we bypass and hit the next one.

Step 1

Step 8

We skip one bead and stick into the next bead.

Step 1

Step 9

After following the diagram from the first photo in this step, you should get something like this.

Step 1

Step 10

Go over so that the thread protrudes from the top. As in the picture.

Step 1

Step 11

And now we are going to add more beads. 

Take a look at which side of the bead the thread comes out from. We count the sequence that we will add from the side from which the thread comes out (excluding the "X" bead on the opposite tip) 

So we take 2 dark - 1 light - 3 dark - 1 light.

Step 1

Step 12

And we pass into the bead from which the thread comes out only from the back.

Step 1

Step 13

We walk around this beaded circle, sticking into every other bead (the ones marked with "X") as we did the first time.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 14

We pass so that the thread protrudes from the top as in the photo.

Step 1

Step 15

And now we check the sequence to be threaded from the side (X) from which the thread comes out (we do not count the vertex at the bottom).

And from the other side, we pass the bead from which the thread is sticking out.

We go through the bead ring again as before, piercing every other bead.

In total, from now on, we will repeat steps 4 and 5 until we get the length we need.

We will add sequences alternately. I showed how to check what to thread so that there would be no trouble when you leave the needlework for a moment.

I must admit that I changed the order in the first copy and I spoiled the pattern.

Step 1

Step 16

As I wrote, repeat steps 4 and 5.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 17

When we have the right length, we tie a knot on the thread between the beads and go along the beads "down" the bracelet so that nothing sprinkles. When we go a little lower the thread, we can cut it off.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 18

Do the same with the thread from the other end.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 19

We put the clasp on, open the jump ring and put it in the hole of the bracelet. On the ring we put a clasp on one side, two rings on the other side and optionally a delicate charm or pendant. '

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 20

And it's ready to wear :)
