we will need
Step 1. , pass 100cm of thread through a 4mm AB bead. Leave a tail of 15cm. Take the thread twice round each
side of the bead.
Step 2. Pick up a gold rocaille.
Step 3. Pass your needle under the threads on one side of the 4mm AB bead.
Going in where you came out, thread back through the rocaille. Pull taught. The rocaille should now be sitting on
itâ€™s end. Continue adding rocailles in this way until you are back at the beginning. They should fit comfortably
without being crowded. Finish off the row by passing the needle down through the first rocaille and up through
the last one you added.
Step 3. Use the same method to make the
second row with ruby rocailles, catching the thread between the beads on the row below to hold. When the
second row is complete, weave the needle down through the rocailles and through the central AB bead. Tie your
2 ends together several times. Weave 1 end and then the other through a few rocailles. Trim off any excess.
Make 4 more mandalas in exactly the same way. Then make 5 more but use black rocailles for the central row and
ruby rocailles for the outer row.
Step 4. BRACELET
Make 2 mandalas, in the same way as you did for the necklace, with gold as the central colour and ruby as the
outer colour. Then make 2 more with black as the central colour and ruby as the outer colour. The bracelet is
assembled in a similar way to the necklace with sections of gold rocailles separating the mandalas and the black
rocaille, AB bead and black rocaille sequence. This time use only 10 gold rocailles instead of 20. As before, start
with a stop bead. When you have added the last mandala or bead sequence, add just 1 more gold rocaille
andmake it into a stop bead at the end.
Add a calotte to each end over the stop beads. To do this, simply place the stop bead in the centre of the
calotte and, using pliers, press shut.
Add the trigger clasp to 1 calotte by placing the clasp loop onto the calotte hook and pressing it flat. Add a jump
ring to the other calotte.
Make 2 mandalas as before, with gold as the central colour and ruby as the outer colour. Place a dab of superglue
onto a flat stud and press a mandala on top. Repeat with the other
This is how your finished items should look!
