Welcome to the beaded dainty feminine bracelet pattern instructions! If you have any difficulty following this tutorial, please post a comment at the bottom of the page on which you are stuck, and I'll do my best to help!
Before you begin ...
2 meters of fishing line in total, about 10 repeating units of bracelet, each containing: 19 of size 15 or 11 (small) silver seed beads, 4 of size 6 (large) white E-seed beads, 4 of size 6 (large) E-seed beads
Time required: About 0.5 hours
Techniques: Beadweaving, right angle weave
Difficulty: Very Easy
Step 1:Okay gather your materials: fishing line (1.5 meters or so), beads, and a needle to help you guide the fishing line through the beads (for more details see the hello kitty page). Now this pattern is simply one repeating unit after another. So I did the first one for you, but I'll show you how the second one is done and you can keep it going. The great thing about this pattern is that every bead you deal with is newly added, so you don't have to worry about all that complicated business of stringing through existing beads. So here we are with our two fishing line ends coming out the of transparent seed bead labelled with a red dot.
Step 2:Add four transparent seed beads to each end, then cross the two ends through a large white seed bead. You can see that the ends have switched sides (the red and black arrows are on opposite sides now). Now add a white bead to each end (the ones labelled with a green dot) and then another one to cross through.
Step 3:Now in this picture, the red and black arrow that have no asterisks beside them are the same arrows from the previous step (you've already done what they say to do, and I included them again for clarity). The arrows with asterisks are new steps. So, basically in this step, go back through the two white beads that are labelled with green dots in the opposite direction that you just came out of them in the previous step.
Step 4:Now add the two black beads labelled with a red dot to each free end of fishing line and then string both ends through a little transparent seed bead in the same direction (this is not a cross).
Step 5:Now add one large black seed bead (labelled in blue) to each end of fishing line coming out of the little transparent seed bead. The yellow-dotted bead will be important in the next step.

|Hi Vicky, I don't quite understand what you mean by "other patterns in the place of the flower". Is there a flower in this pattern?|
|Vicky on December 20, 2008:|
|Thanks for the pattern it's absolutely beautiful!
Are there any other patterns I can put in the place of the flower? For example a heart or something else in the place of the flower? That would be great!
