Like no other, herringbone - completing round 3

  • pick up a seed bead and go through the next Cali as well as through the bottom hole of the first Cali you added in this round
  • note: when you add Cali beads you are starting the next round, when you add just one seed bead you tighten the structure

Like no other, herringbone - step-up or U-turn round 4

  • fourth round: make a step-up by passing your needle through the second hole of the Cali you just exited, in other words make a U-turn

  • continue building up the rope by adding round three and four alternately
  • proceed until you have the desired length by repeating the instructions of the third and fourth round and end in a way similar to the start
  • to finish off the rope, you could add on each side a large bead cap or a small rondelle bead
  • add a toggle clasp and enjoy!

  • play with color variations for the Cali bead and keep the other beads in one color scheme
