You can follow this simple tutorial to create an elegant bracelet from PRECIOSA Ripple™ pressed beads. The glossy version of the dualcolor vacuum decoration known as California goes well with gold rocailles and together they create a luxurious piece of jewelry.
Thanks to the wide range of beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand, you can create your own combination of colors and surface finishes and in doing so harmonize your accessories with your wardrobe and with any number of occasions.
TOOLS and MATERIALS:
PRECIOSA rocailles GBR6, size 6/0,
PRECIOSA rocailles GBR10, size 10/0
|PRECIOSA Ripple™ (GBRIP12) (64pcs)|
a 0.25 mm nylon line (ca 1.5 m); 2x connecting rings (gold); fastening (gold); scissors; needle nose pliers; flat nose pliers; snipping pliers
The bracelet is created using the so-called „four-bead“ technique“.
String 1x GBR6, 1x GBRIP12, 2x GBR6, 1x GBRIP12, 2x GBR6, 1x GBRIP12 and 1x GBR6 onto a line which is about 1.5 m long. Move the stringing to the middle of the line. String 1x GBR6, 1x GBRIP12 and 1x GBR6 onto one end of the line and thread the second end through them in the opposite direction.
String 1x GBR6, 1x GBRIP12 and 1x GBR6 onto each end of the line. String another trio of 1x GBR6, 1x GBRIP12 and 1x GBR6 onto one of the ends and thread the second end through them in the opposite direction. Repeat this step one more time.
Repeat the second step until the bracelet reaches the required length.
String 5x GBR10 onto each of the ends. String 1x GBR8 onto one of the ends and thread the second end through it in the opposite direction.
Connect the fastening with the connecting ring or sew it on using an GBR10. Attach the second part of the fastening in a similar way.
