Flexible stringing of beads and seed beads
Come and string your first bracelet! The PRECIOSA Traditional Czech beads™ brand offers glass beads in a wide variety of types, shapes and colors to this end.
PRECIOSA ORNELA wishes you many inspirational experiences when stringing glass beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand.
Materials and tools:
PRECIOSA Pressed Beads - any MIX or a colorful mixture of several MIXES;
any rocailles in a smaller size (10/0 to 8/0)
a flexible line (Opelon, Elastomer, hatmaker's elastic); a thin needle; tailor's thread; scissors; a ruler
Choose the materials. You can be quite random when stringing. Create a color mixture or you can create a bracelet with a repeating pattern.
Cut off about 15 cm of tailor's thread. String it through the eye of the needle. Tie off the end of the thread. Move the knot to the side. You will now have a large loop.
Cut off about 60 cm of the flexible line. Thread it through the thread loop. Fold it in half.
Now, you can string beads. Alternate the stringing of a shape and a rocaille. Adapt the length of the bracelet to your requirements.
Tie off the ends of the flexible line with at least two knots, but preferably with three. The bracelet must be able to be easily drawn across the palm onto the wrist. Cut off the line about 2 mm from the knots. If possible, pull the knot into the hole of the nearest shape.
