 Below is a sneak preview of what you will see from the step by step guide available in our member area.



Step 1
 Begin by picking three 8mm pearls and three 3mm pearls. Put them on the thread one by one in this order – one smaller and one bigger pearl.
Step 2
Bring the first and last beads together, and make an overhead or square knot to pull the beads into a ring. Example is in the picture below. 

 

Step 3

The next steps will be the same until you reach desired length of a bracelet or a necklace. Take a 3mm bead then 8mm bead, 3mm bead, 8mm bead and one more 3mm bead. Put the needle through the hole of the pearl opposite the knot. (arrow shows the direction of the thread)

 
Step 4
 To finish the previous step, put the needle through the first two pearls from the previous step – one 3mm pearl and one 8mm pearl in order to start the next step. 


Step 5

Repeat steps 3-4 until you reach the desired length. (more pictures to visualize these two steps)
