How to create a green zigzag weave bracelet

Step One

Cut a 20" length of beading thread add a Jumpring and bring both ends together, pass through a crimp bead and secure with Crimping Pliers so that your Jumpring is in the centre of the thread.

Step Two

Feed both ends of the beading thread through an 8mm bead in opposite directions and pull tight.

Step Three

Add an 8mm bead to one of your threads and a 12mm bead on the other side, then pass both ends in opposite directions through another 8mm bead and pull tight, the design will naturally kink towards the smaller beads

Step Four

Now feed on an 8mm bead to one thread and a 12mm bead to the other thread but make sure they are the opposite way around to the ones you added in step 3.

Step Five

Repeat steps 3 and 4 and your zigzag pattern will start to emerge. Continue until you have your desired bracelet length.

Step Six

Finish off by passing both threads through a crimp bead and a Jumpring, then feed the threads back through the crimp and secure with Flat Nose Pliers or Crimping Pliers. Add a clasp to the Jumpring to complete the piece.
