PROCEDURE:

1. The 1st row: string four Twin seed beads, tie them in a ring (fig. no. 1).

2. The 2nd row: thread the needle with the line through the second hole of the last strung seed bead from the initial ring and string a further two Twin seed beads between each seed bead from the first row (fig. no. 2).


 

3. The 3rd row: thread the needle with the line through the second hole in the last strung seed bead from the second row and alternately string 2-1-2-1-2-1-2-1 Twin seed beads between the individual seed beads according to the drawing (fig. no. 3).

4. The 4th row: thread the needle through the second hole of the last strung seed bead from the third row and string 2 seed beads in the corners of the previous row according to the drawing (fig. no. 4) and then string 2x 1 beads on the individual sides between the seed beads. A total of 16 Twin seed beads have now been strung in this row. End the stringing with a firm knot and pass the end of the line through the holes in the nearest seed beads. In this way, you will create six parts (fig. no. 5) which will then be sewn together.

 

5. First sew together three parts. The procedure is the same as in the previous rows.

Sew the straight sides by adding individual Twin seed beads, add a further two seed beads in the corners and connect the individual parts using the second holes in the added seed beads (fig. no. 6).

 

6. Sew the remaining three parts together in the same way by inserting individual Twin beads.

 

7. Repeat steps 1 - 6 a total of 6x. 

8. String the individual balls alternately with three Farfalle seed beads onto flexible material (fig. no. 7) which is then tied off with a strong knot and the original airy bracelet consisting of unique new Twin seed beads is finished :o))
