Spice Road Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Miyuki Tila beads create an interesting design in this Spice Road bracelet. The square-shaped beads create a path of stunning style you'll want to add to every ensemble. Pair your Tila beads with your favorite Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend to add your own twist to this fun design.



Step one
Step two
Step three
String a Miyuki 5mm metallic matte bronze rainbow Tila square tube bead onto your length of thread. Use about three feet of thread with a needle on the end. Then, string three seed beads from the Warm Metals Designer Seed Bead Blend onto the thread. Bring your needle down through the second stringing hole of the Tila bead. Add another Tila bead to the thread, then bring your needle back down through the second stringing hole of the first Tila bead added. Go up through the stringing hole of the next Tila bead once more. Then, add three seed beads to thread and go down through the second stringing hole.
Step four
Step five
Step six
Add another Tila bead to the thread, then go back down through the second stringing hole of the previous Tila bead. Repeat steps two through four until your bracelet is the desired length. Your thread should be coming out of the bottom of the last Tila bead added to the row. Add three seed beads to the thread, followed by a Tila bead. Add three seed beads to the thread, then go through the second stringing hole of the Tila bead. Add three seed beads to the thread, then go through the first stringing hole of the last Tila bead in the first row. Make sure you don't go through any of the seed beads, just the Tila bead.
Step seven
Step eight
Step nine
Next, bring your needle, down through the stringing hole of the next Tila bead in the first row, making sure not to go through any seed beads. Add three seed beads to the thread, followed by a Tila bead. Then, bring your needle through the stringing hole of the first Tila bead added to the second row. Make sure not to go through any seed beads. Bring your thread back down through the stringing hole of the next Tila bead.
Step ten
Step eleven
Step twelve
Add three seed beads to the thread, then go up through the second stringing hole of the Tila bead. Add three seed beads to the thread, then go up through the second stringing hole of the second Tila bead in the first row. Then, bring your needle down through the next Tila bead in the first row. Add three seed beads to the thread, followed by a Tila bead. Bring your needle up through the stringing hole of the previous Tila bead in the second row.
Step thirteen
Step fourteen
Step fifteen
Bring your needle back down through the first stringing hole of the last Tila bead added. Add three seed beads to the thread, then go down through the second stringing hole of the Tila bead. Repeat steps seven through fifteen until your bracelet rows are the same length, with just three more seed beads to add between the last Tila beads.
Step sixteen
Step seventeen
From here, you can add the clasp. Position your needle so that it is coming out of the bracelet between the three seed beads in the middle and a Tila bead. Add five seed beads to the thread, followed by one half of the TierraCast brass oxide pewter heirloom clasp set. Add five more seed beads to the thread, then loop the thread around the three seed beads in the middle section of the bracelet. Pass the thread through the loop you just made several times to strengthen it. Knot and secure your thread. Repeat this step on the other end of the bracelet.
Add the three seed beads and then tie a knot with the ends of your threads between the seed beads and a Tila bead.
