Horizontal Kandi Bracelet

Hi, my name is Christina and I'm 12 years old, I'm so happy to be showing my craft on my mom's blog! I got inspired to do this craft because my mom is always doing so many cool crafts, so I decided that I wanted to do a cool craft too and that is why I am doing a tutorial on how to make a horizontal kandi bracelet.

You should have 28 beads for each color

Cut the string arm's length

 Tape the end of your string to your workspace

Bead on the first color of beads as though you were making a regular bracelet 

Once you finish stringing on your first color of beads double knot the ends of your string (make sure you leave a lot of string on one end and a little bit of string on the other)  

When you start on your second color skip a purple bead and slide the string in the next purple bead and continue around the whole bracelet

It should look like this when you skip a purple bead 

When you finish stringing the beads all the way around it should look like this, you should add a second layer of the same color (string on one bead then slide the string tthrough the next bead and add another bead and so on)

So in the end it should look like this

Once you have finished adding all of your beads find were there is a space in your bracelet and tie a double knot to it

When it is finished it should look like these two pictures
