Preciosa Twin... Two In One

Presenting PRECIOSA Twin™, a unique new seed bead from PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand. This oval two-hole seed bead will help you to simply create spatially interesting shapes and original structures or lacy patterns. Highly interesting effects can also be achieved, if the PRECIOSA Twin is strung using the classic seed bead technique known as herringbone stitch. The oval shape of this new seed bead increases the effect of this technique and creates the appearance of tweed fabric. The wide range of color finishes on crystal and black two-hole PRECIOSA Twin seed beads will inspire you to use the infinite color combinations. Try this new type of seed bead and make an original, elegant bracelet which you can wear at any everyday or special occasion.

The Procedure

You can use the precisely designated color combination according to the detailed drawing or you can choose a color scheme according to your own design. The bracelet which we have described here corresponds to the standard bracelet length which is 18.5cm without the fastening. You can, however, lengthen or shorten it as needed.
Step 1
String 3x R, 2x T and 2x R and pass the needle with the nylon line through the first strung rocaille once again. This will create a circle which you should secure with a surgeon's knot. String 17x R and pass the nylon line through the three seed beads from the basic circle once again.
Step 2
Then string 2x R, 2x T, 3x R, 2x T and 20x R and pass the needle with the nylon line through third rocaille from the last strung Twin, tighten and form a circle. String 1x R and thread the needle through the nearest 1x R, 2x T and 1x R seed beads one more time. Tighten the nylon line well.
Step 3
String 2x R, 2x T, 3x R, 2x T and 20x R and pass the needle and the line through the third rocaille from the last strung Twin. Tighten and form a circle. String 1x R and pass the needle through the nearest 1x R and 2x T seed beads one more time and then pass the needle and the line through the second hole in the outer Twin. This will bring you to the second row of the stringing.
Step 4
String 2x T and pass the needle and line through the free second holes of the T from the first row: repeat this procedure 4 more times, then string 2x T and pass the line through the second hole in the outer Twin. This will bring you to the third row of the stringing. Repeat this procedure until the required length of the bracelet has been achieved.
Step 5
To make the bracelet fastener, sew 4x T through both holes, tighten the line well and hide the ends of the line in the seed beads. Repeat this procedure three times.
Step 6
String 5x R in the last row of the bracelet, pass the needle and the line through the gap between the four sewn T, string 1x R and thread the needle and the line back through the gap between the sewn T and the three nearest strung rocailles. String 2x R, pass the needle and the line through the second hole in the nearest 2 Twins.
Step 7
String 3x R, then pass the needle and the line through the free holes of the two T from the last row, repeat this procedure one more time and end the bracelet using the procedure set out in point no. 6. Secure the end of the nylon line with a strong double knot and hide it in the holes of the nearest seed beads.
