(( Embellishments )) How to add beads to a bracelet
You can add beads on the edge for a border type look or basically anywhere in your bracelet. for the tutorial we are gonna use pattern 2, the chevron as it is also known.
You first must decide what bead you are going to use. for bracelets made out of embroidery floss I recommend seed beads. they are small and look nice but are tricky to get on. For the picture guide i will use yarn and pony beads so it will look a little different then with the seed beads.
2: Before you do the 3rd row put a bead on the outer most strings, on the left and right side. (the blue dots are beads)
decide when you want to add center beads. (for this it will be every other line)
3. take the two red strings in the middle of row 2 and put a bead on both of them together. note with this you will never actually be doing a knot there.
4. do the next row and make sure to do the knots extra tight so the beads fit better and look nicer.
