When creating your individual kandy, first accumulate your supplies. Kandy might be as particular person because the designer – so something goes – something threadable, accessible and light-weight sufficient to put on. Acrylic beads are well-liked as a result of they’re straightforward to get and are available many types and colors. Any threading materials will do, so long as it’s not too thick for no matter you might be threading. You would use wool, yarn, hemp twine, embroidery thread, string, you get the concept. Most of my easy kandies are made with sturdy elastic, particularly zero.8mm black elastic. So – beads and thread are the fundamentals however if you wish to use another supplies, you possibly can want extra instruments to connect them eg. glue, a threading needle, a gap punch.
Assume by means of your design earlier than you start. This appears apparent, however it’s good to recollect – there may be nothing extra irritating than placing effort and time right into a venture that does not end up as you wished. Understand how you need your bracelet to look, resolve how it will likely be worn and hooked up, will it require a clasp? Make certain of the design earlier than you narrow your thread so you’ve sufficient in direction of the tip and go away additional to tie off. Resolve on colors and take into consideration your sample if utilizing beads. I exploit 9mm pony beads and discover 30 beads makes a great sized bracelet to suit virtually anybody. A lot of my patterns are of 6 beads repeated 5 occasions or vice versa. You would write down or draw your sample thought, this helps if it’s important to put your work down and are available again later or if you wish to keep in mind your sample to make use of once more. Verify that the sample will ‘make sense’ on the finish of the bracelet the place the primary row joins the final.
You may have what you want and you’ve got a design so subsequent, begin threading! When you find yourself glad, tie off your thread or create / connect your clasp. The straight-forward elastic bracelets have to be knotted at the least double. I knot mine three occasions. Stretch out the bracelet and verify the knots, stress, match and design earlier than slicing off any extra thread.
You at the moment are able to put on and share you distinctive kandy creation!
