Dimensional Bracelet Free Pattern




This bracelet is made using a couple of the newer beads, Czech Mates Triangle bead and Tila's. It looks like it might be complicated to make, but once you get used to the thread path, you will move along quickly. With the triangle beads down the center it gives the bracelet a nice dimensional look.

 

Beads Used:
A = 11˚ MIYUKI Seed beads
B = 8˚ MIYUKI Seed beads
C = Czech Mates Triangle bead
D = 11˚ MIYUKI DELICA beads
E = MIYUKI Tila beads
 

 

Start by waxing and stretching your thread, use Nymo D or C-Lon & a #11 or #12 beading needle. I used Fireline 6lb. crystal.  Tie in a "stopper" bead, leaving about an 8" tail and begin at step #1.




1. Pick up 1E, 1A, 3D and 1C going through the top hole of the C bead. In later steps make sure all the C beads are pointing up.




 
2. Pick up 3D, go with thread right to left through the bottom hole of the C bead and up through the 3 D beads added in the last step.





3. Pick up 1A, 1E 1A, 1B, 1A, go with thread down through the right side hole of the E bead just added.






4. Pick up 1A, go with thread down through the 3 D beads, step #2.






5. a) Pick up 1A,3D, 1A, go with thread down through the 3 D beads, step #2.
b) Pick up 1A, go with thread down through the right side hole of the E bead added in step #1.









6. Pick up 1A, 1B, 1A, follow the blue dotted line in illustration. First going up and then down with working thread and coming out with thread down through the right side hole of the E bead, Step #1.










7. Pick up 1B, 1E, 1A, go with thread up through the 3 D beads, Step #5a.




8. Pick up 1C, 3D, go with thread right to left through the bottom hole of the C bead just added and up through the 3 D beads, Step #5a. Make sure your C bead is facing up in the same direction as the previous C bead.




9. Pick up 1A, 1E, 1B, go with thread down through the right side hole of the E bead in the previous unit and the A bead, left to right through the 1 A bead, as shown, up through the 1 A bead and the left side hole of the E bead just added in this step.


10. a) Pick up 1A, 1B, 1A, go with thread down through the right side hole of the E bead, step #9.
b) Pick up 1A, go with thread down through the 3 D beads, step #8.




11. a) Pick up 1A, 3D, 1A, go with thread down through the 3 D beads, step #8.
b) Pick up 1A, go with thread down through the right side hole of the E bead, step #7.




 


12. Pick up 1A, 1B, 1A, follow the blue dotted line in illustration. First going up and then down with working thread and coming out with thread down through the right side hole of the E bead, Step #7.




 



13. Continue bracelet by repeating steps #7 through #12 until the bracelet reaches the length that you would like.

I bet this would look awesome using pyramid beads in place of the tilas. Nice pattern!
