Double Hole Crossing Wristlet
A twist on a classic wristlet shape, using our exclusive double hole beads!
- 6 x 15mm Double Hole Beads
- 60 x 9mm Regular Round or Metallic Round Beads
- 1 x Keyring & Clip
- Sharp scissors
- 2 x 60” lengths of nylon cording
- Crafting needle
1. Trim your cording and lightly melt the ends with your lighter to make threading beads easier.
2. Thread on to your cording a double hole bead, followed by 5 x 9mm beads. Do this a total of 6 times. You should have 6 double hole beads and 30 x 9mm beads.
3. Thread on your keyring. Take both ends and tie them off together in a double knot. Your loop should be tight enough to bring the beads together without seeing any cording in between.
4. Run your lighter over the knot to secure it. Thread your crafting needle on to your cording. Push your needle through the double hole bead and gently pull the knot inside the double hole bead. Trim and melt the ends to hide the knot.
5. Take your second cording length, trim and lightly melt the ends.
6. Thread on your crafting needle to your cording, and pass it through the crossing channel hole of one of your double hole beads. We suggest picking a different bead than the one that you just hid a knot in.
7. Leave about 6” of cording on the one side to tie off with at the end. On the working end of your cording, thread on 5x 9mm beads.
8. Skip down to the next double hole bead and pass your needle through it, moving in the opposite direction that you just came from on the previous bead. Your cording will be weaving back and forth through the double hole beads.
9. Once through, add on another 5x 9mm beads, and pass the needle and cording through the next double hole bead in the opposite direction.
10. When you get to the keyring, make sure that your weaving also passes through the keyring hole.
11. You should end up with two strands coming out on the same sides of your design. Add 5x 9mm beads to one string. Tie off the two pieces together with a double knot.
12. Using your lighter, melt and fuse the double knot. Thread on your crafting needle to one cording end. Pass the needle through the double hole bead beside the knot, and gently pull the knot into the bead to hide it.
13. Trim and melt the ends to keep them from fraying.
