Beads counts are only per bracelet. If you want to sew earrings, it is necessary to add 2 pcs D, 2 pcs P 8/0 and 12 pcs A including earring findings and 2 pieces of rings.
Cut the thread about 120 cm long. Leave one end of the thread ca. 15-20 cm long for weaving. The bracelet can be sewn in two ways - one needle (see instructions) or two needles.
Pick up the „stopper“ bead and 3x A through the top hole pointing down. Pick up 1x P 11/0, 1x D through the top hole, 1x P 11/0 and 3x A through the top of the hole up (Fig. 1).
Pick up 1x FPB (Fig. 2).
Repeat the procedure according to figure 1 (except for the „stopper“ bead) and figure 2 until the end of the row. Continue adding 5x D and 4x FPB between A beads – in total 6x D and 5x FPB (Fig. 12). Pick up 2x P 11/0, 1x P 8/0 a 2x P 11/0 following last added A (Fig. 3).
Sew through the bottom hole 3x A (Fig. 4).
Pick up1x P 11/0, sew through the bottom hole of 1x D, pick up 1x P 11/0 and sew through the bottom hole of 3x A (Fig. 5).
Pick up 1x FPB and sew through the bottom hole of 3x A (Fig. 6).
Repeat the procedure according to the figures 5 and 6 until the end of the row. Pick up 2x P 11/0, 1x P 8/0, 2x P 11/0 following last sewn A and sew through the top hole of A (Fig. 7).
Remove the „stopper“ bead, weave the short end of the working thread and cut it off. Sew through all the beads in the top row gradually. Sew through 2x P 11/0 at the end (Fig. 8).
Skip 1x P 8/0 and sew through the next 2x P 11/0 (Fig. 9).
Tighten the working thread. P 8/0 comes out beautifully (Fig. 10).
Sew through all the beads in the bottom row. Make a point again at the end according to figures 9 and 10 (Fig. 11).
Weave the working thread and end. Your bracelet is completed (Fig. 12).
Add the rings and clasp including double split ring into P 8/0 (Fig. 13).
You can sew the earrings in the same simple way. Replace P 8/0 with P 11/0 in the bottom part. The upper part with P 8/0 remains unchanged. Add the ring and earring findings.
