Alternate design
1. Work steps 1–5 of “First layer” and step 1 of “Second layer” to make two strips 1 in. (2.5 cm) longer than the desired bracelet length. End the working threads and tails. Work steps 1–5 of “First layer” and steps 1–6 of “Second layer” to make a double layer strip 1 in. (2.5 cm) longer than the desired bracelet length. End the working thread and tail. Arrange the single strips on each side of the double strip so that the ends form a diagonal.
2. Add 1½ yd. (1.4 m) of thread to the single top strip, and exit the last inside edge B with the needle pointing toward the other end (FIGURE 7, point a).
3. Pick up a 15/0, a B, and a 15/0, and sew through the last inside edge B of the double strip (a–b).
4. Pick up a 15/0, a B, and a 15/0, and sew through the next B of the single strip, with the needle pointing toward this end of the beadwork (b–c). Pick up a 15/0, and sew through the next five beads of this stitch (c–d).
5. Pick up a 15/0, and sew through the next B of the single strip (d–e). Pick up a 15/0, a B, and a 15/0, and sew through the corresponding B of the double strip (e–f). Pick up a 15/0, and sew through the next B. Continue through the following four beads of this stitch (f–g).
6. Pick up a 15/0, and sew through the next B of the double strip (g–h). Pick up a 15/0, a B, and a 15/0, and sew through the corresponding B of the single strip (h–i). Pick up a 15/0, and sew through the next B. Continue through the following four beads of this stitch (i–j).
7. Pick up a 15/0, and sew through the next B of the single strip (j–k).
