Step 1

Measure an arms span of illusion cord and thread through the bottom hole of your tila bead, horizontally. Thread your bead to the centre of the thread

Step 2

Thread a seed bead onto each side of the tila bead. Pass the thread through the top hole of the tila bead.

Step 3

Pass each thread through one side of a twin hole bead and then back down through the other side and through the bottom hole of another tila bead.

Step 4

Thread a seed bead onto each side, pass the thread through the top hole of the tila bead. 
Pass each thread through one side of a twin hole bead and then through the other side, and then add another tila bead. 
(See image for more detail)
Repeat these steps until your bracelet is the desired length. 

Step 5

Secure, knot and trim your threads at the end of the bracelet.

Step 6

Cut another length of cord. Thread onto a needle. 
Pass your thread through one of the end seed beads. 
Secure your thread to this seed bead by passing around and back through it a few times. 

Step 7

Thread on approx. 10 seed beads and pass your thread through the seed bead on the opposite side of the tila and your last seed bead. 

Step 8

Come out the other side of this seed bead, next to the twin hole bead. 
Thread on 4 seed beads and pass the cord over the twin hole and through the next seed bead on the side you are working on. 
Repeat this until you reach the other end of the bracelet. 

Step 9

When you pass through the last seed bead on the bracelet, add 10 seed beads and bring the thread around the end tila bead to start the other side of the bracelet.  
Continue your 4 seed bead pattern all the way down the other side of the bracelet.
Finish your thread by knotting and securing it within your design.
Add a drop of glue to secure if you wish. 

Step 10

The two 10 bead loops at the ends of your bracelet are where your clasp and jumpring will attach.
