5. Remove the stop bead, and, making sure both sides are snug, tie the working thread and tail with a square knot. Sew through the first hole of the first Tila, the next two magatamas, and the following Tila (FIGURE 4, a–b).
6. Pick up a 3.4 mm drop bead, and sew through the opposite Tila, going through the same hole you sewed through before (b–c). Pick up a drop, sew through the opposite Tila and the first drop added in this step (c–d), and pull tight. This will cause the Tilas adjacent to the drops to angle upward like wings. Sew through the next six beads on this side of the bracelet (d–e). Repeat this step to the end of the band.
