How to start making bracelets with beads and thread?

Step 2: Pinch the folded part. Then, rotate the left thread outwards with thumb and index finger of left hand.
Step 3: Rotate the right thread outwards with same fingers of right hand.
Step 4: Draw the two threads close to make them twist naturally and evenly. Stop when it reaches to 1/3 of the bracelet.
Step 5: Secure the twist by tying a snake knot (Click here to the special snake knot tying technique page or just follow the images shows in the next step).
