STEP 1

Cut six feet of thread and
double thread it through the
needle.

Note that even though you'll be
working with a double thread
through out the project, the
instructions will look as if
there is just one thread.
STEP 2

The first thing to to is to make
a ring of beads that you'll
attach one half of the clasp to
later on. At the end of the
bracelet you'll do the same
thing for the other half of the
clasp.

String two pink beads and six
green beads and pull the beads
down until they are two inches
from the end.



STEP 3

Bring the needle through the
first bead (bead #1) strung
going in the side of the bead
closest to the tail of the
thread. Pull taut to form a
ring. Be sure to leave the two
inches of tail.
STEP 4

Bring the needle through the
next bead (bead #2) and then
through the next six beads to
come out of bead #8. Tie a knot
between using the thread and
tail.



STEP 5

Now the ring is done and the
first daisy will be created.

Bring the needle through beads
#1 and #2.

STEP 6

String eight pink beads and
bring the needle through bead #1
and pull taut to form adjoining
ring.


STEP 7

String one purple bead and bring
the needle through bead #11 so
that it comes out between beads
#11 and #10.

Now the first daisy has been
created! The next two steps will
create the leaves and the
beginnings of the next daisy.

STEP 8

String two green beads, two pink
beads and two more green beads.
Bring the needle through bead
#12 so that it comes out between
beads #12 and #11 and pull tight
to form another ring.




STEP 9

String one green bead and bring
the needle through bead #16 so
that it comes out between beads
#16 and #15.

The leaves and the beginnings of
the next daisy are done. Now
just repeat the next 4 steps
until bracelet is the right
length for you.
STEP 10

The needle is coming out of bead
B right now. String six pink
beads and bring the needle
through bead A so that it is
coming out between A and B.
Pull taut to form a ring.



STEP 11

String one purple bead and bring
the needle through bead X so
that it comes out between beads
X and Y.

STEP 12

String two green beads, two pink
beads and two more green beads.
String the needle through bead Z
so that it comes out between
beads Z and X.



STEP 13

String one green bead and bring
the needle into bead B so that
it comes out between beads B
and C.

STEP 14

Now that the bracelet is the
right length, if you didn't stop
at the end of a "daisy" do the
necessary steps so that you do.
You will now create the ending
loop.

String six green beads and form
a ring by bringing the needle
through beads A and B. For
strength, bring the needle
through those six greeb beads
again and through beads A and B
again. Now tie a knot between
beads B and X.

Glad they look helpful!

This is incredibly geeky... but for a multimedia class I took a few years ago I made this little program in Macromedia Director where you can learn to make seed bead jewelry and also design seed bead jewelry.

So those instructions and the Seed Bead Mandala I just posted are from that. If you're interested, you can check out the program:

I used to be really into beading ... if you can believe it ...

I liked that pattern and I decided to try it but use E beads between the flowers rather than seed beads...
