Completion
Sew the line in after completing the rocaille section.
Create the edges which are placed in the hanger.
Weave a band which is about 0.5 cm wide.
Interlace the same thread as the one threaded in
the thicker needle on the warp through the warp.
Start in the middle of band and thread through to the
edge and back to the second edge and constantly
repeat. Glue the band with fast drying adhesive.

Once it has dried, cut off the remaining thread from


the band. Also cut off the warp and align it with
the edge of the band. Place the band in the metal
hanger and crimp it. You can use flat nose pliers
or a light tap with a rubber mallet for this.
Affix the fastening onto the loops on the hangers
using the rings.

WOVEN BRACELET MADE FROM CHARLOTTE BEADS

WOVEN BRACELET MADE FROM CHARLOTTE BEADS

Our tutorial will teach you how to create woven


accessories from seed beads. The weaving system
is simple and merely requires patience and a good
idea of what the resulting motif should look like.
This will subsequently enable you to design your
own original accessories.
We also have a simple tip on how to make your own
weaving loom.

The fire bird bracelet gives the impression


of a luxurious fashion accessory thanks to its elegant
motif, the combination of gold and navy blue.

The loom
The most suitable loom consists of a large number
of nails. Otherwise, it is possible to make the warp
with doubled threads placed in grooves. It is best,
if the warp can be loosened and tightened. You can
make your own simple loom. For the bracelet, you
will need a board, which is about 30 cm long and
10 cm wide, and some small upholstery nails.
Knock the nails into the narrow end of the board
and set them out in lines in the shape of pointed
teeth. Clump them together as densely as possible
so that you do not have any problems with an overly
tight warp.

Weaving
String up the warp. Tie the thread to the comb and
Princip navlkn tku:
pull it to the second end and back. Repeat this until
you have 37 strung threads. You should reckon with
the fact that the warp will loosen and as such you

Apply it from the bottom of the warp. Press it


through the warp threads and pass through the seed
beads above the warp threads. String the entire
bracelet in this way (fig. no. 2). When tightening
the first column, it may be necessary to loosen the
warp. Be careful not to overly loosen it, as the warp
made slide off the comb! If you want to change
the length of the bracelet and maintain its central
