Follow Our Step By Step Tutorial
Before starting to thread your main beads, measure the length of the gold beads and chosen 10 accent beads. You want to minus this off the total length you want your bracelet (19cm is a standard bracelet size) then divide that number by 2, this will give you the length of the main beads that you will need. Remember to include the knot cover in this length.
