Tila bead bracelet, easily made

vævede armbånd med Tila beads

You can make these beautiful weaved bracelets with leather edge and Tila beads yourself.  Here we show you some examples of bracelets for which we combined Tila beads, seed beads and Delica beads.

Our versions have got a leather edge and a button hole.

Weaving these bracelets becomes very easy when you fasten the leather cords in a beading loom.

For this bracelet we used the following materials:

 

DIY læder og fireline med kokosknap

First, you string the button on the leather cord and push it down to the middle of the cord. Cut approx. 2 metres of FireLine off the reel. (You will need a bit more than 2 metres for this bracelet but a thread longer than 2 metres makes sewing difficult.)

Put the thread parallel to the leather cords and tie a knot with the leather cords and the thread together. Push the knot all the way up to the button, then tighten the knot.

Fasten the knot in one of the clamps of the weaving loom and the to ends of the leather cord in the other.

Please take care that the clamp does not cut through the leather cord, espeacially if the leather is quite thin.

Thread the first grey Delica bead onto the needle. Sew underneath the leather cords and push the bead up in between the cords. Do that from left to right.

Sew back through the bead from right to left – now above the leather cords.

Tighten the thread. Now the first bead is tightly sewn to the cords.

Next, string 2 beads onto the needle. Sew underneath the leather cords and push the beads up in between the cords.

Sew through the two beads – above the leather cords – and tighten the thread.

Proceed the same way with the next 3 beads.

Now you fasten the Tila bead. Tila beads have got two holes which means that you have to sew back and forth twice through the same bead.
Sew through the first hole and push the Tila bead up in between the leather cords.

Then you sew backwards through the same hole – from right to left and above the leather cords.

Go up with the needle in between the leather cords, then you sew through the second hole in the Tila bead.

Before you can pull the thread completely through, you have to go back with the needle underneath the two leather cords.
Now the thread is lying underneath the leather cords and can be sewn through the bead.

Push the Tila bead upwards and sew through it – above the leather cords and from right to left.

Weave two more Tila beads into your bracelet, proceed the the same way. Next, you thread 4 Delica beads on your needle and sew them into the bracelet.

… and 5 rows of gilded Delica beads. Afterwards, you repeat the colour combination until the bracelet has reached the desired length.

If you want to wrap the bracelet twice or more times around your wrist, you will have to change the thread.
Tie the new thread unto the first one and place the knot in a way that will make it disappear within a bead when you continue sewing. Before you continue, apply a bit of jewellery glue on the knot and cut the excess thread tightly at the knot.

Complete the bracelet the way you started it in order to create a pointed end.

Tie a knot with the leather cords and the sewing thread together.

Push the knot all the way up to the beads and tighten it.

Then, you tie another knot in order to create a button hole, this time with the leather cords only.

If you like, you can tie a third knot fto make a second button hole. Apply a bit of glue on the knots and cut the thread. Cut the excess leather cord after the last knot.
