I layout my beads on my working surface before picking them up. This helps to pick them up in the correct order.


Start by waxing and stretching your thread. Tie in a “stopper” bead, leaving about a 8-10” tail and begin at step #1.


1. Pick up 2T, 3A, 1V(BH), 1G, 1V(TH), 1G, 1V(TH), 1G, 1V(BH), 3A, 2T, 3A, 1V(BH), 1G, 1V(TH), 1G, 1V(TH), 1G, 1V(BH), 3A go with thread down through the first 2 T beads and the 1st and 2nd A bead just added in this step
In this step you need to really follow the way to pick up the beads in the illustration to make sure you are picking them up the correct way.





2. a) Pick up 3A, go with thread left to right through the 1V(TH), 1G, 1V(BH), 1G, 1V(BH), 1G, 1V(TH), as shown in illustration.
b) Pick up 3A, go with thread forward through the 2 A, 2 T and 2 A beads as shown in illustration.







3. a) Pick up 3A, go with thread right to left through the 1V(TH), 1G, 1V(BH), 1G, 1V(BH), 1G, 1V(TH), as shown in illustration.
b) Pick up 3A, go with thread forward through the 2 A, 2 T and 3 A beads and 1V(BH) as shown in illustration.





4. Pick up 1A, 1T, 1A, go with thread right to left through the top 1V(BH) as shown in illustration, 3 A beads, down through 2 T beads, left to right through 2 A beads and then the 3 A beads, step #2a. Continue with working thread by following the thread path in the illustration, through your piece, coming out with thread right to left through the top right 1 V (BH) bead as shown.






5. Pick up 1A, 1T, 1A, go with thread left to right through the bottom right 1V(BH) as shown in illustration, 3 A beads, up through 2 T beads, right to left through 3 A beads, the top right 1 V (BH) bead as shown, and down through the 3 beads just added in this step.




6. a) Pick up 1A, go with thread right to left through the 1V(TH), in the bottom as shown in illustration.
b) Pick up 2A, go with thread right to left through the next 1V(TH), in the bottom as shown in illustration.
c) Pick up 1A, go with thread up through the 3 beads added in step #4.



7. a) Pick up 1A, go with thread left to right through the 1V(TH), in the top as shown in illustration.
b) Pick up 2A, go with thread left to right through the next 1V(TH), in the top as shown in illustration.
c) Pick up 1A, go with thread down through the 1st A and 1 T beads added in step #5.



8. Pick up 1C, go with thread down through the 1 T bead, step #4, left to right through the C bead just added in this step, down through the 1 T bead and the 2nd A bead, step #5. Continue with working thread by following the thread path in the illustration through the Unit, coming out with thread down through the 2 T beads as shown. First Unit made.


9. Pick up 3A, 1V(BH), 1G, 1V(TH), 1G, 1V(TH), 1G, 1V(BH), 3A, 2T, 3A, 1V(BH), 1G, 1V(TH), 1G, 1V(TH), 1G, 1V(BH), 3A go with thread down through the center 2 T beads in the previous Unit and the 1st and 2nd A bead just added in this step


10. Continue Unit by repeating steps #2 through step #8.
Continue by repeating steps #9 and #10 until the bracelet is the length that you would like. To add clasp, pick up 3A, clasp, 3A, go with thread up (or down) through 2T beads in bracelet. Continue with thread around through the clasp beads several times for strength. Weave the working thread into the bracelet and end. Repeat the clasp directions in the same manner at the other end of bracelet after removing the stopper bead.
