Keep beads snug against each other and nudge them into place if necessary. Keep thread tension tight enough to form a firm but fluid rope. Wrapping the tail around your finger can help keep the tension until the rope is long enough to hold onto. Your tension will determine how much twist your bracelet has. Prepare thread by stretching and running it through beeswax or Thread Heaven ®. 1. With 2 yards of thread, string 2 size 11º seed beads. Leave a 12” tail. It is not necessary to tie a knot or use a stop bead 2. Pass the needle back up through the 1st seed bead strung, then down through the 2nd seed bead. 3. Pick up the 3rd seed bead.

Pick up a size 10º triangle bead. Pass the needle up through the 3rd seed bead, then back down through the triangle bead. 5. With the triangle bead on the right, fold the ladder away from you, then pass the needle up through the 1st seed bead to form a circle. Your tail thread and the new thread should now be coming out of the top and bottom ends of the 1st bead strung. 6. Pass the needle back down through the triangle bead, then back up through the 1st seed bead. This will stabilize the circle. 7. Pick up 2 seed beads, and pass the needle down through the 2nd seed bead in the base circle, then up through the 3rd seed bead in the base circle. 8.
