The length of the product in the master class is 165 mm. The bill of glass beads should turn out to be odd. String on the fishing line 13 pcs. Beads of white color and cross the tails in the next dialed white glass beads. Then the work will be in one thread, so move the ring as close as possible to one ponytail. Apply the technique of parallel weaving, alternating bugles of gold and white colors. When they are 69, type on the tail of the line 13 beads of white color and pass the tail through the white glass beads. In the technique of hand weaving weave into the two arches of 13 beads additional beads of white color.The line comes from an additional row of beads. Dial 7 beads of white color and pass the tail to the 3rd bugle of white color. Once again, thread 7 beads of white color and thread the line in the second row of beads on the other hand, the line must come out of the fourth bead of the arch of seven beads. String 7 white beads, pass the tail of the line to the sixth bugle of gold and return to the glass beaker of white color. Again, pass the tail through three beads of an arch of 7 beads. Again string 7 beads of white color and pass the line through the ninth white glass bead. The line leaves the 10th bugle of gold color and passes through three white beads. Again string 7 beads and continue to work on the rest of the side.

Go through the fourth beads of white on both sides, close the ring. Again string four transparent beads. Repeat until the end of the bracelet.It remains to attach the lock and the bracelet is ready. The next master class with step-by-step photos is dedicated to a wide and, at the same time, air bracelet made of beads and beads in the technique of the Saraguro.It will take:
- Beads 11/0 dark blue color (hole square);
- Pearls 4 mm;
- Lock for the bracelet;
- A line and a needle for beads.
Work begins with the creation of a series of bases. String a multiple of 8 beads. The length is slightly less than the wrist circumference. From an extreme bead, count two, dial three beads of the rise, two beads of the stem and again three beads of the ascent. It turned out a rectangle of 3 x 2 beads. Lower (curl) the line between the beads base low and pass through the last dialed three beads. The work tail made a loop around the line of the stem, not passing through the beads of the main low. The working line should not be tightened - the line must be flat. The first "cell" in the basic series was obtained.String two beads and 1 bead, count 2beads on the main low, make a loop with a working tail and pass it through the bead. The first "cell" with a bead was obtained. For the next "cell" string 2 beads and 3 beads, count on the main low two beads and make a loop with a working tail of the line and return through three beads. Weave empty and filled with beads "cages", as in the photo. Weave the whole row-base. Then make an extra row for the main weaving. It will be necessary to return through the beads of the stem, additionally threading three beads over the sides of the "cells". (see photo). Weaving of the 1st row.Braiding it, making a loop with a working tailThe lines around the beads, which were scored additionally in the previous paragraph. The 1st motive is like this: thread 7 beads, make a loop before the 1st additional bead and return through the last three of the seven. Then string eight beads, make a loop after the second additional bead and return again through the last three beads. Then string four beads, make a loop after the third additional bead and go back through the last three beads. 1 additional beads connect the motifs with each other, so to switch to the weaving of the next motive, you need to string four beads, make a loop before the 1st additional bead of the next three and weave the motif as above to the end. Weaving the 2nd row.The work is practically repeated in comparison withfirst row. The difference is that the loop is made around the 2nd, 3rd and 4th beads in the central arches of the 1st row and decorate the central arches of this row with an additional 1 bead. Need to string 4 beads, then 4 more, each time to make a loop and go back through the last three beads. For the central arches with an additional bead strung 4 beads, return through the third, strung 5 beads, make a loop around the base and go through the last three beads from the dialed.One side of the bracelet is ready. It remains to weave the similar second side. You can slightly change the variation of the bracelet, if in the second row do not weave an additional one bead in the central arches.
