beautiful but I couldn't follow the part where you joined. I couldn't tell
where you were putting the needle. I would love it if you'd done it with
the two colour bracelet.

I was completely lost at the end. I managed to find the three beads to
thread the working thread into then I didn't know if I was up or down! Not
very clear and very disappointing.

Can I use fishing line instead? I use fishing line to make my handbags and
it works great. It's VERY strong and you can get it in tiny sizes that
would go through seed beads easily.

the two colored beads it would have been much easier to follow....Thank you

Do you know of another tutorial online that show how to combine the ends
together. Maybe looking at a couple examples we will be able to figure out.
I want to make a few for some friends I am visiting in Ocotober

Автор Korkie moore-bruno ( назад)
I think the confusion on connecting to ends into bangle is that the actual
rope had two many different shades to see what your were doing. I you could
show us how to close the bracelet with just the two colors it would be so
much easier for us to follow. Thank you

Автор Korkie moore-bruno ( назад)
I had no trouble following the tutorial for the spiral rope bracelet.
However, it would have been much easier following the video if the
instructor used the same beads use to make the rope. Having all those multi
color and size beads was just way to confusing. I am hoping there is either
another video or written instructions. I have 3 spiral ropes dying to be

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
Make sure to go back through some of your already woven beads to make sure
that the connection is secure. I know that this video is a little confusing
at the end and we have on our to-do list a note to create a video depicting
just the joining of the ends. Unfortunately our to-do list is rather long
right now but we will get to it when we can. 

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
Hi! The designer who created this video unfortunately moved away and is no
longer with our company. When I have created this type of bracelet the most
important thing to do is to line up the two ends that you are wanting to
join, much like a jig saw puzzle. Once you have the two ends lined up, you
literally stitch them together. If you need to add a bead or two to make
them flush, then add where needed. 

Автор K-Deezy ( назад)
I am having issues with completing my spiral in the sense of joining the
the two ends together. Maybe I'm just not understanding what's your doing
to get them together?

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
Yes, more then 2 colors can be used and there are a lot of different ways
you can do that. I am not sure what pattern you want to make but I would
suggest just experimenting with different color combos and seeing what you
like best. The same stitching technique will apply.

Hello. A while back i posted that i couldn't get my spiral to stay in place
and u suggested to use a heavier string. Well i just was gettin back to u
saying yes it did work out and i love it even more now that i know how to
do it

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
Hi! Unfortunately it is not really possible for me to determine exactly how
much thread you would use, it will be yards. The amount you need is also
going to depend upon your tension and size of your beads. To make a
necklace you will not be able to do it all with one continuous length of
thread, you will need to add more as you go. We have a video showing you
how to tie off and add more thread with bead weaving. 

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
I am sorry for the confusion in the video. Our designer Andrea created the
video and she has since moved back to the East Coast. It does appear that
she goes through the 3rd bead in the core. To secure the last spiral I
would go through several inches of bracelet next to it, just to secure it
properly. I don't feel like you need to go through the entire bracelet.

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
Gaps between your spirals sounds like a tension issue. I would try pulling
your thread a bit tighter and seeing if that helps. 

Автор Penny I ( назад)
i seem to have issues with gaps between my spiral color what am I doing
wrong. Its after I get several of the spirals done and its pulled tight. 

Автор Clhooser ( назад)
When u put together the ends do u go into the third bead in the core to
start the last spiral? Do u go all the way around the bracelet with the
final spiral? I could not tell what was happening in the video on the
finishing row. Thank 's

Автор fireboywife ( назад)
can you tell me where I can find 5mm pearls - I have found 4mm & 6mm, but
not 5mm.

Автор Beadaholique (1363 года назад)
I am sorry that the video is a bit unclear, it was created by Andrea who is
no longer working with us but I will try to answer your questions. You do
not add additional beads when you join the two ends, but after you join
them, you do need to add more beads in the form of additional outer
spirals. You will not add any more core beads but will be adding more outer
spiral bead "segments" until your spiral patterns line up. I hope this
helps a little. 

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
We used size 6/0 seed beads to make the bracelet. You can get them on
Beadaholique . com's website. The links for the supplies in this video are

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
It could be that your thread does not have enough "heft" to it but more
then likely it is your tension. Try keeping your beads tighter together and
also try doubling your thread to see if that helps as well. Good luck!

Автор carrie m ( назад)
for some reason mine is not staying in a spiral pattern could it be the
fact im attempting it with thread? or is it just me?

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
You can add a clasp and you would just tie your thread (after the last
bead) to a closed jump ring to secure it. I would loop my thread multiple
times around the jump ring so that I had a secure attachment and then knot
it. For the tail of the thread, I would work it back into my beading. You
can then attach a clasp to this closed jump ring. Thanks for the

Автор Laura Dawson ( назад)
Hi...I had trouble following you when you finished the bracelet. The part
where you join the two end, I was confused after that as to where to start
the last spirals. You don't add any additional beads at this point, right?
The video just seemed a bit unclear at that point.

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
Thanks for the clarification! I will add a double spiral rope to our
requests list. 

Автор kitti0702 ( назад)
I think I understand the question, and I believe that a viewer is asking
again how to make a double spiral rope. Because most instructions for
double spiral are written, they can be very confusing about the placement
of the outer ribs of beads, especially when the beadwork is flipped. A
video tutorial that shows how to start a double spiral and where the
subsequent outer ribs are placed would be beneficial.

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
I am sorry but I am not quite sure what you are asking. Can you please give
me more details?

I would recommend a thermal bonded thread such as Wildfire or Fireline.
Both are great choices and very strong. I personally use smoke gray
Fireline .006 for my projects at home. I find it very versatile.

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
Thank you for the detailed response. We are considering doing a video
showing specifically how to finish the end. It will take us a little bit to
put together but I think it could be a very good video to have. 

Автор Isittruee ( назад)
what tread is the bestto use if you want to make different bracelets?
because i saw some nice bracelets, but they are all different kinds of
thread. which would you recommend with which you can make more projects? 

Автор kitti0702 ( назад)
Since the end of the video has been mentioned before, maybe I can help you
understand the problem with it. First, it would have helped if the same
bracelet had been used through the entire video. When the ends of the
bracelet are being woven together, you show sewing into the beginning, but
the entire section on completing the attachment was skipped over until the
last few beads. No one can see how and where the sections were joined.

Автор Beadaholique (339 лет назад)
I am sorry but we can not re-do the ending. Is there a specific question
that you had? 

Автор Jeslyne Santos ( назад)
Can you re-do the ending

Автор T4v33b ( назад)
Thank you!

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
The core does not always have to be 4 beads, it can be whatever number you
want. You will just need to experiment with how many loop beads you will
need to compliment the core. 

Автор T4v33b ( назад)
Does the core always have to be four beads or can it be different numbers?

Автор Barbara Carpenter ( назад)
it would have been helpful if you had finished the 2 color bracelet. then
we could see what you were doing. introducing all those other beads into
the mix, while very pretty, made it hard to understand what you were trying
to show us..

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
Another option is to try and wax your thread really well before starting,
this will probably cut down on the tangling and knotting. It might make it
so that you can use longer strands at a time. 

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
Hi! One of the hardest things in bead weaving is figuring out the amount of
string to start with. If your string keeps tangling and getting knots in
it, that might mean you are actually using too much to start with. I find
that about 4 - 5 feet at a time is a manageable amount for me, anything
more then that and I run into issues. Restringing and starting from where
you left off is unfortunately part of the process.

Автор Samantha Brown ( назад)
i really like this video.....im having problems with how much string to use
i keep running out and having to it restring and start where i left off and
i keep tangling my string n getting knots in it help..

Автор pinkleopard28 ( назад)
Thank-you very much for this tutorial! I looove it!

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
If your spirals are flopping all over the place, I think it has more to do
with your thread tension then with the size of your beads. It could be that
your beads are a bit heavy, especially the 6mm ones, but before giving up
on this current project, try pulling your threads tighter and see what
happens. Good luck!

Автор mdooms76 (410 лет назад)
This is a great video. I have one question. When I make spiral bracelets my
spirals flop all over and are very spaced after I'm done. Your spiral beads
are grouped very tightly. Could it be that my beads are too large or heavy?
I used 6mm fire polished and 4 mm fire polished on a separate project.

Автор Svetlana Stepanova ( назад)
if you had used only two colors and only one size bead, it would be much
easier to understand how the two ends are joined

well thank you very much for youre time and responding mayby i am gonna try
it once....i think i am not good enough yet....again,thank you 

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
Yes, you can make it so you that you can attach a clasp. It takes some
creativity, but just try to end your stitching in a way which looks
"finished". Then stitch a clasp on via the whatever connector the clasp
has. So if your chosen clasp has a closed loop as the attachment point, sew
this onto the end of your stitching - bringing your needle in and out of
the beads and passing through several times to secure it.

@Sarah78679 Hi! Yes, 0.15 is going to be a bit thick for a size 12 needle.
I would suggest a size 10. Before you purchase a different needle, you can
also try flattening the end of your thread. Check out our blog entry from
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 called "Flattening Wildfire Thread for Easier
Threading". The link for our blog is located on our channel page.

Автор Sarah78679 ( назад)
@Beadaholique I have Beadalon Wildfire 0.15mm and I have a terrible time
threading a #12 needle with it. I am thinking that maybe the thread is too
thick. Is that so?

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
@Sarah78679 The needle that is used in this video is a size 12 needle. You
can get them on Beadaholique . com's website. I just added a link for them
in the video description underneath the video.

Автор Sarah78679 ( назад)
what size needle are you using? 

Автор Beadaholique ( назад)
@gladys1620 I would not recommend using elastic cords for the spiral rope
stitch. You really need your beads to line up properly for this to look
right and with the elastic cord you will have the beads moving around and
not sitting right. I think it will result in a lot of frustration in both
the creating process and what the final piece looks like. 

Автор gladys1620 ( назад)
is it possible to use elastic chords for this project>

Автор Moiranne Dyer ( назад)
I'm glad you showed a completed project, but might have been easier for us
beginners if you had done it with the 2-color bracelet as kind of hard to
follow which was your core bead and which was the outer spiral with the
multi-colored one.
