You need to cut the wax wire and make 8 strands. Use a cord end to make them tight.
Separate the 8 cords into 4 parts: 3 cords on the left and 3 cords on the right; use one cord in the middle to thread the beads; and use one cord on the back to thread the cross.
You can start to thread the wood beads now. Remember to choose the different beads every time before you start a new cross. Use the cord on the both sides to cover the shape of the beads in the middle.
When you make the bracelet as long as you want, you need to cut the extra cord and fix a cord end again. Then use the clasp and jump ring to finish the bracelet.
