Instructions

Measure your wrist before you begin so that you can decide how long you will want your bracelet to be. The cuff style looks best with a somewhat snug fit. Keep in mind that the strand reducers and clasp will add about an inch to the length.
  1. Begin by cutting as long of a length of white Wildfire beading thread as you are comfortable working with. I like to work with about 6' of thread at a time, but find the length that feels comfortable to you. Thread a size 12 beading needle with the length of thread. You will need to end your thread and begin a new one once or twice while weaving this bracelet. Watch the video: How to Tie Off and Add a New Thread in Bead Weaving to learn how.
  2. Watch the video: How to Bead Weave an Openwork Style Tila Bead Bracelet. This video will show you how to weave together your Miyuki Tila beads and size 11/0 Delica beads in this openwork style stitch. Follow the instructions given in the video to complete your bracelet. The video will also explain how to attach strand reducers and a clasp to your bracelet.
