How To Bead Weave a Cuff Bracelet Using Tila Beads

Go to for all of your beading supply needs! 0:00:07.290,0:00:11.130
Hi this Julie with Today I’m going to show you how to make this 0:00:11.130,0:00:13.990
bracelet using tila beads and seed beads 0:00:13.990,0:00:17.820
and then a millimeter bead in the middle. here I’ve used czech glass for the 0:00:17.820,0:00:20.570
demo. Here I’ll be using Swarovski Crystal 0:00:20.570,0:00:23.619
and it’s a really easy stitch and for me this pattern is all about 0:00:23.619,0:00:27.320
contrast. You can see we’ve got the matte
tila beads against a super shiny 0:00:27.320,0:00:31.649
bright ones which creates a really interesting dimension to the bracelet. 0:00:31.649,0:00:34.960
So what you’re going to need is a size twelve beading needle. 0:00:34.960,0:00:37.680
You can see mine are well loved and bent 0:00:37.680,0:00:40.140
You’re going to need a pair of scissors 0:00:40.140,0:00:41.560
a Thread Zap 0:00:41.560,0:00:46.740
You need some wildfire thread. This is
size .006 0:00:46.740,0:00:51.280
two different contrasting Tila beads. I have a shiny one and a matte one 0:00:51.280,0:00:54.660
You’re gonna need a three millimeter, a four millimeter would also work for a 0:00:54.660,0:00:57.500
center bead which is gonna be the strip right here 0:00:57.500,0:01:01.100
and I’d like to have it in the same color as my matte tila beads so they’re 0:01:01.100,0:01:03.070
going to be turquoise 0:01:03.070,0:01:08.000
You need size 11/0 seed beads for these middle sections and then you’ll need a size 0:01:08.000,0:01:09.440
a 15/0 0:01:09.440,0:01:12.840
which is going to give a delicate edge 0:01:12.840,0:01:14.070
To begin 0:01:14.070,0:01:17.190
go ahead and cut yourself a length of your 0:01:17.190,0:01:18.250
beading thread 0:01:18.250,0:01:19.790
I’m going to cut 0:01:19.790,0:01:22.320
about five to six feet to start 0:01:22.320,0:01:26.660
There’s no way you’re going to be able to create this entire
based on a single piece of thread 0:01:26.660,0:01:29.780
expect you’re going to have to at some point tie it off and start again. I think 0:01:29.780,0:01:33.610
for this bracelet I had to tie off and start again about three times 0:01:33.610,0:01:36.860
So just be aware of that and don’t worry about it too much 0:01:36.860,0:01:41.280
so my beading needle is really a bit tiny for this thickness of 0:01:41.280,0:01:44.909
thread, so what I’m going to do is take the tip of the thread 0:01:44.909,0:01:46.029
between my 0:01:46.029,0:01:47.810
fingernail and my thumb and my 0:01:47.810,0:01:50.160
index finger here and I’m just going to 0:01:50.160,0:01:52.160
flattened that tip out 0:01:52.160,0:01:55.470
and that’s gonna make it so I can go ahead and actually get the needle 0:01:55.470,0:02:01.620
onto to this thread 0:02:01.620,0:02:05.120
the reason I’m having a size twelve needle instead of a little larger one is just because 0:02:05.120,0:02:08.170
I want to do multiple passes through my beads and I wanna make sure that I don’t have 0:02:08.170,0:02:10.060
any problems with the thickness 0:02:10.060,0:02:15.529
So I’m gonna go ahead pull my thread down I’m going to almost double it here 0:02:15.529,0:02:19.049
just so that I don’t have quite as long of a length to work with 0:02:19.049,0:02:22.959
I have a stopper bead right here. It’s
just another spare bead I had on my 0:02:22.959,0:02:26.409
table that’s a different color than the beads and working with 0:02:26.409,0:02:28.649
pull it up all the way down to the bottom 0:02:28.649,0:02:32.519
leaving the tail a good six, seven inches 0:02:32.519,0:02:33.709
because I going to have to 0:02:33.709,0:02:38.509
thread that tail later and work it into my beadwork to get rid of it so 0:02:38.509,0:02:42.689
just a simple knot. I’m going to be able to pull
that out easily 0:02:42.689,0:02:45.409
So to begin what you do is 0:02:45.409,0:02:51.229
do the outer edge first. It might be a little
easier if you see this pattern like so 0:02:51.229,0:02:53.999
so first placed on 0:02:53.999,0:02:57.480
a tila bead and you’ll notice with tila beads they have two holes in them 0:02:57.480,0:03:00.649
I’m just going through one of the side holes 0:03:00.649,0:03:06.419
and place on a contracting tila bead 0:03:06.419,0:03:07.859
Now I’m going to pickup 0:03:07.859,0:03:09.599
two 0:03:09.599,0:03:12.279
of my bronze colored beads 0:03:12.279,0:03:16.339
one of my three millimeter beads, again for millimeters would be fine 0:03:16.339,0:03:19.829
you can do a round, you could do a bicone, whatever shape you like 0:03:19.829,0:03:21.480
I’m going to do two more 0:03:21.480,0:03:23.719
of my size 11/0 0:03:23.719,0:03:26.419
and place on another tila bead 0:03:26.419,0:03:30.739
you see I’m just going to that side hole 0:03:30.739,0:03:34.209
and another two bronze color 0:03:34.209,0:03:38.309
another three millimeter 0:03:38.309,0:03:42.819
two more bronze 0:03:42.819,0:03:45.509
slide those down so I have room to work 0:03:45.509,0:03:50.199
place on another tila bead 0:03:50.199,0:03:52.949
and another shiny tila 0:03:52.949,0:03:56.449
pull these all the way down to the base of the thread 0:03:56.449,0:03:58.929
and see what I have here 0:03:58.929,0:04:02.519
You see the pattern starting to take form here. I’ve got the shiny tila, the 0:04:02.519,0:04:03.909
matte one, 0:04:03.909,0:04:06.069
two size 11/0, a three millimeter 0:04:06.069,0:04:07.439
two size 11/0s 0:04:07.439,0:04:09.269
another tila 0:04:09.269,0:04:11.680
two size 11/0s, a three millimeter 0:04:11.680,0:04:13.319
two size 11/0s 0:04:13.319,0:04:14.929
a tila and a tila 0:04:14.929,0:04:17.889
You can see this is going to be my stripes 0:04:17.889,0:04:19.239
See how that will work 0:04:19.239,0:04:21.850
So now what I want to do is I wanna go ahead 0:04:21.850,0:04:23.499
have these all the way down at the bottom 0:04:23.499,0:04:27.179
take my needle and go through the other hole in the tila bead 0:04:28.729,0:04:30.379
I’m going to do that on the 0:04:30.379,0:04:36.629
second tila bead as well 0:04:36.629,0:04:42.830
pull that down, make sure that snug against your stopper bead 0:04:42.830,0:04:43.970
and now I’m going to pickup 0:04:43.970,0:04:45.639
two more 0:04:45.639,0:04:47.919
of my bronze color 0:04:47.919,0:04:49.979
and I’m going to go through 0:04:49.979,0:04:55.419
my three millimeter 0:04:55.419,0:05:02.419
I don’t want to go through any other beads 0:05:02.940,0:05:04.909
pull that down 0:05:04.909,0:05:09.999
place on another two 0:05:09.999,0:05:14.949
of my bronze color there’s a tile bead hole there if you can see that 0:05:14.949,0:05:19.809
going to go through that one 0:05:19.809,0:05:21.669
it’s like you’re making little x’s 0:05:21.669,0:05:24.239
with the three millimeter in the middle 0:05:24.239,0:05:25.580
do the same thing for 0:05:25.580,0:05:28.229
the next segment 0:05:28.229,0:05:33.009
two more of the bronze 0:05:33.009,0:05:33.860
through 0:05:33.860,0:05:40.669
just the three millimeter 0:05:40.669,0:05:44.069
again 0:05:44.069,0:05:45.909
another two 0:05:45.909,0:05:49.080
go through the other hole in the tila bead 0:05:49.080,0:05:52.139
make sure we go through both of the holes in the tila beads 0:05:52.139,0:05:56.500
the turquoise which is matte and shiny one which is bronze 0:05:56.500,0:05:58.939
pull 0:05:58.939,0:06:02.449
We’ve got that first segment. Now we need
to build on a row. A lot of people 0:06:02.449,0:06:05.780
have a hard time connecting tila beads. You see that they have the two holes 0:06:05.780,0:06:08.080
and you think it should be really easy to connect but sometimes it’s hard to 0:06:08.080,0:06:09.819
figure it out just because 0:06:09.819,0:06:13.689
of the orientation of the holes. So the
way we’re going to connect these 0:06:13.689,0:06:16.629
is we’re first gonna pick up 0:06:16.629,0:06:19.749
a bronze shiny one 0:06:19.749,0:06:23.509
and a matte turquoise 0:06:23.509,0:06:25.749
pull those down to the bottom 0:06:25.749,0:06:29.749
they’re just hanging out here and now that we
have to connect them. So we’re gonna 0:06:29.749,0:06:34.319
up under 0:06:34.319,0:06:37.419
the other turquoise and the matte one my needles going all the way through 0:06:37.419,0:06:43.300
it’s like you’re creating a big loop 0:06:43.300,0:06:45.539
pull that and there’s your stripes 0:06:45.539,0:06:48.919
you see it’s starting to form 0:06:48.919,0:06:52.349
I have a little decorative edging on this bracelet so at this time I’m going to 0:06:52.349,0:06:54.110
add 0:06:54.110,0:06:58.189
three 0:06:58.189,0:07:01.400
of my size 15/0. They’re smaller 0:07:01.400,0:07:05.470
Go back through that same hole 0:07:05.470,0:07:08.370
both those tila beads 0:07:08.370,0:07:10.710
that I went through previously 0:07:10.710,0:07:13.810
they’re gonna have a hole right now with nothing going through it and a hole 0:07:13.810,0:07:15.499
with a couple pass throughs 0:07:15.499,0:07:17.659
and I wanna start 0:07:17.659,0:07:21.379
beginning my next segment. So I’m going to pick up 0:07:21.379,0:07:23.830
two of my size 11/0 0:07:23.830,0:07:25.490
three millimeter 0:07:25.490,0:07:27.150
two of the bronze 0:07:27.150,0:07:30.509
and a tila bead 0:07:30.509,0:07:32.619
turquoise 0:07:32.619,0:07:35.330
if you get confused about what you’re supposed to be picking up just look at 0:07:35.330,0:07:38.770
the pattern you’re creating 0:07:38.770,0:07:43.519
once you’ve strung on your middle tila you’re going
to want to anchor your previous tila 0:07:43.519,0:07:46.689
go up 0:07:46.689,0:07:48.409
through the hole on the side 0:07:48.409,0:07:49.729
of your tila 0:07:49.729,0:07:53.279
again we don’t want to go through any other beads 0:07:53.279,0:07:58.389
pull it through 0:07:58.389,0:07:59.409
go back through 0:08:00.410,0:08:04.889
just kind of hold these in place. Keep
pulling your thread. Make sure it’s snug 0:08:04.889,0:08:08.030
and we don’t want to go through any of those metallic bronze ones. Just 0:08:08.030,0:08:13.169
go through the hole in the tila again 0:08:13.169,0:08:17.379
and that’s going to anchor it 0:08:17.379,0:08:18.569
now 0:08:18.569,0:08:22.490
keep going so just pick up two metallic bronze 0:08:22.490,0:08:24.060
three millimeter 0:08:24.060,0:08:27.180
two more bronze 0:08:27.180,0:08:28.789
turquoise tila 0:08:28.789,0:08:31.749
and a bronze tila 0:08:31.749,0:08:35.360
pull those all the way down 0:08:35.360,0:08:36.330
Now on this one 0:08:36.330,0:08:38.590
you can see where our thread comes out 0:08:38.590,0:08:40.170
coming out of the top 0:08:40.170,0:08:42.800
want to go back down through 0:08:42.800,0:08:44.870
the side hole 0:08:44.870,0:08:48.180
with the tilas next to it 0:08:48.180,0:08:50.950
pull all the way through 0:08:50.950,0:08:53.640
we’re going to go back through 0:08:53.640,0:08:59.190
these two tilas on the side 0:08:59.190,0:09:02.480
Now that’s anchored but again we have that little decorative edge 0:09:02.480,0:09:08.120
so go ahead and pick up three of the size 15/0 0:09:08.120,0:09:10.810
put those on the needle 0:09:10.810,0:09:14.740
we’re going to go down 0:09:14.740,0:09:18.400
through it again 0:09:18.400,0:09:21.680
Now those are secured but our thread is not in the right position so we need to 0:09:21.680,0:09:26.930
now go back up 0:09:26.930,0:09:29.560
when working with tilas just keep in mind where you want your thread to be 0:09:29.560,0:09:31.480
and how can you get it there 0:09:31.480,0:09:35.300
so I want to be creating this row here now so I need to get my thread there are so 0:09:35.300,0:09:36.840
I’m gonna go through 0:09:36.840,0:09:42.100
the other hole in my tilas 0:09:42.100,0:09:45.140
and pull through and now I’m where I wanna be 0:09:45.140,0:09:49.850
now I can see from my pattern I need to create this
X so I’m going to need to just pick up 0:09:49.850,0:09:51.320
two 0:09:51.320,0:09:53.030
more bronze 0:09:53.030,0:09:56.640
size 11/0 and I’m going to go through 0:09:56.640,0:10:02.220
my center three millimeter bead 0:10:02.220,0:10:03.500
pull through 0:10:03.500,0:10:05.110
crate that x 0:10:05.110,0:10:07.280
I need two more 0:10:07.280,0:10:10.460
size 11/0 and go right through 0:10:10.460,0:10:14.090
that other tila bead hole which is really waiting for me and your pattern develops 0:10:14.090,0:10:15.130
really 0:10:15.130,0:10:18.380
just be able to go with the flow and not really have to think about it. You’ll 0:10:18.380,0:10:20.040
see what you need 0:10:20.040,0:10:25.030
I need to repeat that now on this top section 0:10:25.030,0:10:29.000
two more 11/0s 0:10:29.000,0:10:36.000
through that three millimeter 0:10:36.190,0:10:42.320
two more 11/0s and then go through both of them 0:10:42.320,0:10:44.880
and now we need to start another row 0:10:45.689,0:10:47.730
pick up a metallic 0:10:47.730,0:10:51.650
bronze tila and a turquoise tila 0:10:51.650,0:10:56.580
and hopefully your starting how to anchor these. We’re going to back up under 0:10:56.580,0:11:02.420
through the turquoise tila and the metallic along the side 0:11:02.420,0:11:05.020
create a big giant loop essentially 0:11:05.020,0:11:09.540
see how this is pulling 0:11:09.540,0:11:12.540
Now 0:11:12.540,0:11:15.650
we need to create the little decorative edge 0:11:15.650,0:11:18.200
so I’m going to put onto my needle 0:11:18.200,0:11:23.870
three of my size 15/0s 0:11:23.870,0:11:25.660
go back down 0:11:25.660,0:11:28.580
through my tila 0:11:28.580,0:11:29.700
and pull 0:11:29.700,0:11:32.410
so we’ve got a nice little loops happening 0:11:32.410,0:11:35.730
Now we need to start another section 0:11:35.730,0:11:37.580
so it’s gonna be 0:11:37.580,0:11:39.770
two of the bronze 0:11:39.770,0:11:41.290
one three millimeter 0:11:41.290,0:11:43.570
two of the bronze 0:11:43.570,0:11:44.990
and 0:11:44.990,0:11:48.520
a center turquoise tila 0:11:48.520,0:11:51.860
and we have to anchor it because right now it’s just hanging out right there 0:11:51.860,0:11:54.240
do that by going back 0:11:54.240,0:12:01.240
under and through the side tila 0:12:01.250,0:12:06.290
you see again I’m creating nice loop 0:12:06.290,0:12:10.010
go back 0:12:10.010,0:12:17.010
through this hole we just went through 0:12:19.300,0:12:21.940
and keep working with it make sure that your threads are nice and tight. You 0:12:21.940,0:12:24.630
don’t want them so tight that they’re distorting the pattern but you want them 0:12:24.630,0:12:27.930
to be snug 0:12:27.930,0:12:31.100
So now we need to make the start at our next X 0:12:31.100,0:12:32.710
which is gonna be 0:12:32.710,0:12:34.520
two of the bronze 0:12:34.520,0:12:36.500
center three millimeter 0:12:36.500,0:12:38.750
two of the bronze 0:12:38.750,0:12:39.720
a matte 0:12:39.720,0:12:42.760
turqouise tila 0:12:42.760,0:12:45.900
and a shiny bronze one 0:12:45.900,0:12:47.180
pull that down 0:12:47.180,0:12:54.180
you need to anchor that to the side 0:12:56.430,0:12:58.520
we need to anchor it some more 0:12:58.520,0:13:02.800
go back up 0:13:02.800,0:13:04.359
make sure that it’s snug 0:13:04.359,0:13:06.650
I need to make my little loop 0:13:06.650,0:13:10.090
I will admit I have forgotten to make this loop had to pull out my beading 0:13:10.090,0:13:15.230
which was very frustrating so just check your work as you go 0:13:15.230,0:13:19.770
three little ones on there 0:13:19.770,0:13:23.350
back through that hole 0:13:23.350,0:13:27.130
Now I need to just get my thread to where I
need it to be which is right here so I’m 0:13:27.130,0:13:27.790
going to go up 0:13:27.790,0:13:29.980
through 0:13:29.980,0:13:33.620
the side holes 0:13:33.620,0:13:34.550
pull 0:13:34.550,0:13:39.000
go through two side holes which have no thread in it yet 0:13:39.000,0:13:40.250
and now 0:13:40.250,0:13:42.100
my thread is where I needed to be 0:13:42.100,0:13:45.610
and I’m just gonna continue doing this all the way along the length of my bracelet 0:13:45.610,0:13:47.580
until it’s the desire length 0:13:47.580,0:13:51.100
and then I’m going to work on attaching the clasp. 0:13:51.100,0:13:55.100
I’ve done a little bit more bead weaving here. You can see
I did a few more rows. I’ve gotten to the point 0:13:55.100,0:13:58.780
where I basically run out of thread. I
have a tail of about eight inches and I 0:13:58.780,0:13:59.910
don’t want to go much 0:13:59.910,0:14:03.640
shorter than that because I’m I need to go ahead and weave this back into my 0:14:03.640,0:14:06.870
bead work which means I’ll need to thread a needle onto. I have to 0:14:06.870,0:14:08.890
make sure I have enough to do that 0:14:08.890,0:14:10.890
and so this is how much 0:14:10.890,0:14:12.720
width I was able to get 0:14:12.720,0:14:16.410
with approximately six to seven feet of my beading thread. You see you will 0:14:16.410,0:14:20.570
need to go ahead and string a new thread incorporate in your bead work 0:14:20.570,0:14:22.830
tie off this one 0:14:22.830,0:14:27.000
We actually have another video on showing exactly how to do that 0:14:27.000,0:14:30.790
essentially I’m not going to show the whole process here but you will 0:14:30.790,0:14:34.020
thread another length of beading thread 0:14:34.020,0:14:35.270
you will start 0:14:35.270,0:14:37.570
somewhere around here 0:14:37.570,0:14:42.550
Go in and over your actual beading that you’ve already done 0:14:42.550,0:14:46.370
and then you just weave it back in here so that it comes out the same area where 0:14:46.370,0:14:47.930
your tail is coming out 0:14:47.930,0:14:51.810
and then you’ll just progress as if it was one long continuous stand 0:14:51.810,0:14:56.270
when you’re done you’ll go back put a needle on the end of this thread and weave it 0:14:56.270,0:15:00.870
into your bead work a tying knots periodically and then just use a thread 0:15:00.870,0:15:05.080
zap or a fine pair of scissors to cut it off so we have another video showing you 0:15:05.080,0:15:06.770
exactly how to do that 0:15:06.770,0:15:09.530
but right now I’m going to show you how to attach a clasp 0:15:09.530,0:15:11.250
when you’re working with tila beads 0:15:11.250,0:15:13.820
it’s really important to use the right clasp 0:15:13.820,0:15:16.830
just because you do you have areas where you don’t have any holes to work with which 0:15:16.830,0:15:18.290
makes it difficult 0:15:18.290,0:15:23.450
So I have this little clasp right here. It’s a multi strand clasp. You can see I got 0:15:23.450,0:15:26.170
four little loops on each side 0:15:26.170,0:15:29.830
now I’ve actually done it here in silver 0:15:29.830,0:15:33.810
You wan to make sure those loops lineup with areas where you can 0:15:33.810,0:15:37.790
actually sew it on to the bead work 0:15:37.790,0:15:41.090
So with this clasp 0:15:41.090,0:15:42.690
you can see 0:15:42.690,0:15:44.250
that it just happens 0:15:44.250,0:15:48.380
that they line up perfectly with the bead work so I don’t have a loop 0:15:48.380,0:15:51.070
right here where I don’t have a hole 0:15:51.070,0:15:55.530
it actually goes right there where I can go ahead and put my thread in 0:15:55.530,0:15:59.710
weave it around the loop back in and continue until my clasp is secure 0:15:59.710,0:16:02.130
so I’m going to show you how to do that right now 0:16:02.130,0:16:04.630
so I have a length of thread. I’ve gone ahead 0:16:04.630,0:16:06.740
and put a needle on 0:16:06.740,0:16:10.220
so I’m just going to put my needle in here 0:16:10.220,0:16:15.900
come out but I don’t want to come out through that little bead 0:16:15.900,0:16:17.150
we’re gonna 0:16:17.150,0:16:20.590
use my nail to push it aside 0:16:20.590,0:16:24.680
pull down again. I need to leave a tail that I
can put a needle back on and incorporate it 0:16:24.680,0:16:26.050
back in 0:16:26.050,0:16:27.450
go down 0:16:27.450,0:16:32.220
through this hole here 0:16:32.220,0:16:33.380
come out 0:16:33.380,0:16:35.610
to the bottom of the tila 0:16:35.610,0:16:38.650
Now if you’re not using this particular clasp you’re gonna need to line it up 0:16:38.650,0:16:42.510
and see where those holes are to make sure you exit your needle 0:16:42.510,0:16:45.120
where a hole is 0:16:45.120,0:16:51.140
and take my clasp apart. I’m only
working with half of it 0:16:51.140,0:16:54.020
Take your needle and go through 0:16:54.020,0:16:57.250
the hole 0:16:57.250,0:16:59.789
and now I’m gonna go through the next bead 0:16:59.789,0:17:02.350
through my bead work as if I hadn’t gone 0:17:02.350,0:17:06.340
outside of it at all 0:17:06.340,0:17:13.340
and find the same path my needle already took 0:17:17.980,0:17:24.140
continue 0:17:24.140,0:17:28.910
I line this up already so I know that I need to exit again right here 0:17:28.910,0:17:30.720
go through another hole 0:17:30.720,0:17:34.140
to me it doesn’t really matter if you go down this way or up this way 0:17:34.140,0:17:37.299
whatever you can to secure it 0:17:37.299,0:17:40.980
I’m going to actually go back through this again in a moment so you’ll see 0:17:40.980,0:17:47.210
that it’s very secure. Now continue along
my bead work 0:17:47.210,0:17:54.210
exit that tila 0:17:54.380,0:17:57.520
go up 0:17:57.520,0:18:00.190
through here 0:18:00.190,0:18:07.190
back down through the next bead 0:18:07.860,0:18:08.909
I know that 0:18:08.909,0:18:12.300
hole is not where one I want it. I want to up next
to the tila 0:18:12.300,0:18:19.300
so again go through the bead work 0:18:23.280,0:18:26.970
back through the tilas 0:18:26.970,0:18:28.780
pull that snug 0:18:28.780,0:18:32.050
So you’ve got that actually on there now but I’m not 0:18:32.050,0:18:39.050
very happy with how secure that is. I
want it to be doubled 0:18:39.350,0:18:40.750
exit my tila 0:18:40.750,0:18:42.500
Now I have a decision to make 0:18:42.500,0:18:46.620
I need to be on the other side. I need to be
over here 0:18:46.620,0:18:50.510
So now I gotta work my needle so that it’s coming in the same direction here. I 0:18:50.510,0:18:55.320
don’t want to cross over. I don’t want the thread
going like that. So I’m going to go all the way back 0:18:55.320,0:18:58.340
down through my bead work and backup 0:18:58.340,0:18:59.700
and this is why 0:18:59.700,0:19:03.960
wanna make sure you have a bead smaller needle to do this project and not a thicker 0:19:03.960,0:19:10.960
needle because they’re going to be a lot of threads in there at this point 0:19:19.330,0:19:24.670
I’m back to my starting position and I’m going up through it again 0:19:24.670,0:19:31.020
same way 0:19:31.020,0:19:35.020
through the hole in the clasp 0:19:35.020,0:19:41.810
through the bead work 0:19:41.810,0:19:48.810
sometimes you have to turn it around so you can
see what your doing 0:19:50.680,0:19:57.680
make sure you keep any of the tails that you have
going here out of the way 0:20:00.050,0:20:07.050
At an exit point go through it again 0:20:07.530,0:20:14.530
just continue on 0:20:20.510,0:20:23.590
That is on there. It is secure. It’s not
going anywhere and all that is 0:20:23.590,0:20:25.539
required now is to go back 0:20:25.539,0:20:29.360
weave this thread back into your bead work, tie a knot, keep weaving it 0:20:29.360,0:20:31.090
and tie off your thread 0:20:31.090,0:20:33.350
and remove the excess 0:20:33.350,0:20:37.380
one quick tip here before I sign off is if you’re doing a project like this we 0:20:37.380,0:20:40.279
have a lot of bead working that we’ve invested a lot of time 0:20:40.279,0:20:44.240
make sure that you tie off your bead work as
a solid piece 0:20:44.240,0:20:48.290
go back cut another piece of thread, thread another needle, incorporate that 0:20:48.290,0:20:51.530
thread into your bead work and attach the clasp 0:20:51.530,0:20:55.170
just because if you do make a mistake with the clasp it’s gonna be a lot 0:20:55.170,0:20:57.530
easier to pull out that thread 0:20:57.530,0:21:00.650
and then you’ll have your bead work attached and you can start again and you don’t 0:21:00.650,0:21:03.130
have to re-do any of the actual bead work 0:21:03.130,0:21:06.510
and another thing is if you’re doing a clasp like this where you need to make sure 0:21:06.510,0:21:09.370
it lines up properly 0:21:09.370,0:21:14.600
if I had this all the way done I would go ahead 0:21:14.600,0:21:16.950
put the clasp on this end 0:21:16.950,0:21:23.290
double it, make sure, I saw which way this clasp had to go 0:21:23.290,0:21:25.460
pull it out 0:21:25.460,0:21:28.710
and lay it down so I know which way I’m gonna need to sew it on 0:21:28.710,0:21:31.870
there’s nothing more frustrating than having all this work and then having a 0:21:31.870,0:21:34.650
clasp where it won’t actually attach because you have it upside down or 0:21:34.650,0:21:36.780
part of it is upside down 0:21:36.780,0:21:40.360
So I hope you had fun with this tutorial it’s a great cuff bracelet to make. It’s a 0:21:40.360,0:21:42.670
lot of fun and it’s a great way 0:21:42.670,0:21:43.270
to use tila beads 0:02.111,0:00:06.111
Go to for all of your beading supply needs!


  1. I really like your videos. You have amazing ideas and techniques. I find though, that after making jewelry, I have no room for it/don't get around to wearing it, so the clutter somewhat impedes on my output almost to a standstill. Any advice? What do you do with your creations?

  2. @jadedfaith777 HI! Thank you for the compliment. I do a bunch of different things with my creations. I sell them for one thing, which means they are out of my house and I also give away a lot as gifts. For the ones I keep, I have an antique wood tool chest with shallow drawers that I store my pieces in. It holds a lot, allows me to see what I have, and does not take up a lot of room.

  3. @Beadaholique I have also taken picture frames, removed the glass and then put a fabric insert into the frame. Then I hang from the frame on the wall and pin my jewelry onto the fabric. It is almost like my jewelry becomes art work and then I can easily see what I have and take it off to wear it.

  4. I have once again really enjoyed this tutorial. I have worked along side you stopping and starting. It has been a pleasure. ! Your instructions are clear and easily followed . Thank you so much .

  5. @oless55 Check out our project Sundance Tila Bracelet – Project B631 – to see how many beads were used in this video. You can see it on Beadaholique . com's website. The links for this bracelet and supplies in this video are located in the video description underneath the video.

  6. Really sweet bracelet/project. I laughed (not at you) when you said there was no way to complete the whole bracelet w/1 piece of thread because I just finished watching 2 videos by Beading4Perfection and she insists and drills into viewers that you should never use more than one piece of thread. That's why I laughed. I also agree. I've been beading for a long time and agree that piecing threads jeopardizes the strength of pieces esp bracelets. Thanks for posting/showing this project, it's great!

  7. You can get them on Beadaholique . com's website. The links for the supplies in this video are located in the video description underneath the video.

  8. Hi! I am SO glad that you like the tutorials, I very much enjoy making them. Thank you for the compliment! We sell all the supplies you see in the videos and have frequent sales and free shipping on orders over $25. There are many different "levels" of beading supplies and I would suggest starting with the less expensive ones for sure. This is what I did and then once I figured out which types of beading techniques I was really passionate about, then I bought the more expensive stuff.

  9. Here are some ideas: start with Craft Wire instead of precious metals, start with Toho beads instead of Miyuki beads, go with Czech Crystal and also stick to plated beads to begin with vs. sterling silver. There are some great inexpensive tools on the website, here are the 4 tools you will most likely need to start: chain nose pliers, round nose pliers, wire cutters, and crimping pliers.

  10. If you are primarily just interested in bead weaving, all you need is a needle and a pair of scissors! Good luck and have fun! Always feel free to send us questions if you get stuck.

  11. You can buy the supplies to make the bracelets at Beadaholique . com. The links for the supplies in this video are located in the video description underneath this video.

  12. This is abeautiful design. I haven't used tila beads before so can you tell me roughly how many I will need of each colour to make an average size bracelet?

  13. You can see the full project ingredient list, including the number of Tila's per color, by click on the link for it in the video description underneath this video.

  16. Love this bracelet!!!!! Such a great teacher – so patient and explains things very well. Makes it look so easy. Can't wait to get my supplies and make this bracelet. Thanks for sharing.

  17. If you are using Swarovski 3mm pearls that substitution should work fine, however natural 3mm pearls might have too small of a hole to pass your needle through several times.

  18. Julie, is there another option for the clasp?  I have a four strand clasp but it is not the one that you are using and the holes do not line up as well.  What would I be able to replace the clasp with?  

  19. I cant wait to try this, thank you for the tut! I kept giggling every time tila was said, I haven't heard anyone call them teela beads, I have only heard tilea as in tile shaped tila beads. Lol thanks again.

  20. Hello. Love the bracelet. I was wondering, if you could make the bracelet just excluding the 15/0 on top of the tila's. Seems like it wouldn't be a problem in theory but I don't know if it is maybe necessary for strength or something. Thank you for the tutorial. 

  21. how do you figure out amount of tila beads needed, do you just measure the bead or temporarily lay pattern.   I have some tilas but afraid not near enough for pattern you have done in this tutorial

  22. I made this with the turquoise and also a terracotta colour accented with nickel tilas. These would have to be my favourite bracelets. Thanks very much for sharing.  I had a lot of fun making them.

  23. Do you have an earring set that would go with this, or necklace? I just finished the bracelet in turquoise and burnished gold and love it! The bicones are also a turquoise/gold ab stone. Beautiful!

  24. Excellent demo. You did a fantastic job and it was so easy to follow. Loved the color combination as well.Thanks for sharing your expertise.
