Bead Project TypeBracelet
- Nylon thread, approx 60cm.
- Freshwater pearls, rice shape.
- Jump Rings x 2
- Bead Tips (aka clamshells) x2.
- Cut your 60cm piece of nylon in two, and tie a knot at one end. Slide on your bead tip.
- Cut the excess nylon off, and dab a small amount of super clue on the knot. Close your bead tip using either your fingers or a pair of pliers. See picture.
- Thread a pearl on each of the pieces of nylon, and pull them close to the bead tip.
- Add another pearl to one of the strands of nylon. Then, take the other strand of nylon and thread it the OPPOSITE way through the pearl. See photo.
- Then pull the two ends of the nylon, so that the pearl sits closely to the first two pearls.
- Add two more pearls, one to each strand, then repeat step 4 & 5.
- Continue this process until you have reached your required length, or until all the pearls are used.
- When you have reached the end, add your bead tip.
- Tie a knot around a pin, then pull the pin as close to the beads/bracelet as possible. See photos.
- Pull out the pin, and pull the knot tightly (using pliers to pull the knot close to the beads as you do this will help). Snip off the excess nylon, add a dab of superclue to the knot and close the bead tip.
- Now add a jump ring to each bead tip. And on one end, add the clasp to the jump ring, see photos.
- Close the jump ring, and you're finished!
