Stringing on a cord
All you need is a few colored glass beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand to create an attractive bracelet for yourself and your friends.
Color mixes of beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand are highly inspirational. All you need is to select and arrange suitable shapes and colors and to string the beads on a colored cord. The use of interesting metal parts will give your work the hallmark of originality.
Materials and tools:
PRECIOSA pressed beads - any color MIX
- a 1 mm waxed cord; metal decorative rings with a large opening (the cord must be able to pass through the opening four times, instead of a fastening)
- scissors; a ruler; a thin needle; a thin tailor's thread
Thread about 15 cm of tailor's thread through the eye of the needle. Tie off the thread. This will create a large loop.
Select shapes with large openings from the mix.
Cut off 60 cm of cord. Thread it into the thread loop. Fold it in half. Tie a knot on the ends of the cord. String the decorative rings (instead of the fastening) and the selected material. Thread the cord through the decorative rings once again from the opposite side. Cut the cord at the fold in the thread loop. Tie a knot at the end.
