Instructions

Follow the sequence on the bead chart to create the same bracelet as ours, changing the colours to correspond with the chart, or choose your own colour way! We will refer to all the beads in the instructions as ' beads ' so you can choose which colours you use.
1.   Thread a needle on to either end of a 1m of stretched beading thread. Pick up 7 beads, and move then to the middle of your thread ( photo 1 )
2. With one of your needles, pass back through all your beads, in the same direction as they were threaded in step one, to create a circle ( photo 2 )
3. Continue and pass through a further three beads ( photo 3 )
4. On one of your needles, pick up three beads ( photo 4 )
5. With the other needle pass back through the three beads, in the opposite direction that they were threaded in the precious step. ( photo 5 )
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5, changing over the colours of beads as you wish, or follow the pattern on our bead chart. ( photo 6 )
7. When your bracelet is the length you would like it, on one needle, pick up four beads, and pass through the last three beads picked up in the previous step.  With the other needle pass back through the four beads picked up in this step - in the opposite direction, and the last three beads picked up in the previous step.  ( photo 7 )
8. With one of your needles, weave through this end loop at least once more - to strengthen. Then weave back through the bracelet, including the bead loop at the other end. Take your other needle, and weave back through the bracelet. 
9. Tie in and secure your thread ( photo 8 )
10. Take one half of your extension chain, using chain nosed pliers open up a jump ring and loop it onto one of your end beaded loops on your bracelets, and close the jump ring. Repeat with the other half of your extension chain and jump ring ( photo 9 )

11. You've finished!
