- Beads of your choice
- Nylon thread
- Beading needle
- Toggle clasp
- Cut a length of nylon thread that is twice the length you want your finished bracelet to be. Thread one end through the beading needle and tie a knot in the other end.
- Add beads to the thread in any pattern you like. For a netted effect, use a combination of larger and smaller beads.
- Once you have added several beads, create a loop by threading the needle back through the first few beads in your pattern. This will create a loop that will become the basis for your netted pattern.
- Begin weaving your netted pattern by looping the needle and thread around the beads in your pattern. Make sure to loop around both the top and bottom of the pattern to create a net-like effect.
- Continue weaving your netted pattern until you have reached the desired length for your bracelet.
- To finish the bracelet, tie off the thread and trim the excess. Attach the toggle clasp to the ends of the bracelet using jump rings.
