I received a really good review on this bracelet instructions that I created. SEE REVIEW HEREI wanted to let you guys have a peek at he basic steps to create the bracelet. The step is called right angle weave using 2 needles. You can use this technique on various handmade jewelry designs.

Step 1:

Cut a good amount of thread and fold it in half. Then make 4 sets of bicones in 2 different colors on the left and right thread.

Step 2:

Continue to slide 2 colors of beads in figure 8 motion and following the diagram until you reach the desired length.

Step 3:

When you reach the desired length, cross the thread into the bead on your left like shown in this diagram.

Step 4:

Now work your way up still in figure 8 motion. Take note that the left thread should pass through a bicone from the first set of bicones you created to complete 4 sets of bicones. 

Step 5:

Keep working your way up until you reach the same length as the first row.

Step 6:

When you're done attach your clasp and voila! You now have a sparkling bracelet :) 

I have a more detailed steps at but the steps I shared here is the basic and you can definitely use the technique to create your own designs. Cheers!
