Bracelet with Tila® Beads and Swarovski Crystal

STEP 1
Using scissors cut one 6-foot length of smoke FireLine® thread.

Thread one end of the FireLine through a beading needle leaving a 6-inch tail.

Attach a Bead Stopper™ to the other end of the thread leaving a 6-inch tail.
STEP 2
String onto the thread, one hole from one Tila™ opaque luster mauve 5x5mm square seed bead. Pass the thread through the second hole of the Tila bead in the opposite direction.

String on one set of four Delica® galvanized lavender #11 seed beads. Pass thread back through the second hole of the Tila bead in the same direction so the Delica galvanized lavender #11 seed beads lay flat against the edge of the Tila bead. Pass the thread back through the four Delica galvanized lavender #11 seed beads to secure.
STEP 3
String onto the thread a second set of four Delica galvanized lavender #11 seed beads. Pass the thread through the four previous Delica galvanized lavender #11 seed beads so the seed beads lay flat against the previous set of Delica galvanized lavender #11 seed beads. Pass the thread back through the second set of four Delica galvanized lavender #11 seed beads.
STEP 4
String onto the thread a third set of four Delica galvanized lavender #11 seed beads. Pass the thread through the second set of four Delica galvanized lavender #11 seed beads and back through the third set of four Delica galvanized lavender #11 seed beads. This completes the first set of Tila and Delica seed beads.
STEP 5
Repeat Steps 2 - 4 to string a total of eighteen Tila and Delica seed bead sets.

Note: Eighteen Tila and Delica seed bead sets creates a 7-1/2 inch bracelet.
STEP 6
String onto the thread, one hole from one Tila bead and pass the thread back through the previous set of four Delica galvanized lavender #11 seed beads so the edge of the Tila bead lays against the last set of four Delica galvanized lavender #11 seed beads. Pass the thread back through the hole of the Tila bead in the same direction then pass the thread through the second hole of the Tila bead and back through the previous hole.

Pass the thread back through the three sets of four Delica galvanized lavender #11 seed beads and the previous Tila bead to secure the end of the thread and hole the beads in place. Trim off any excess thread.
STEP 7
Remove the Bead Stopper and thread a beading needle onto the 6-inch tail from Step 2. Pass the thread through the first set of Tila and Delica seed beads, from Step 2, in the same manner to conceal the tail of the thread and secure the seed beads in place. Trim off any excess thread.
