Pour aller plus loin avec les bracelets brésiliens

Briconolages

Nous avons vu dans le précédent article la méthode (B-A BA) pour faire un bracelet en diagonale. Il s’agit de faire se suivre des bandes de couleur dans l’ordre des fils.

Allons ici un peu plus loin avec un peu de théorie sur les quatre différents nœuds que l’on peut rencontrer en faisant un bracelet brésilien et voyons différents modèles que nous pouvons mettre en application avec ces différents nœuds.

La théorie : les quatre nœuds

Le premier nœud que nous avions vu porte le nom « endroit-endroit » : le fil de gauche vient faire une boucle autour du fil de droite puis une seconde. C’est alors le fil de gauche qui donne sa couleur au nœud et le fil de gauche se retrouve à droite et le fil de droite, à gauche.

I am very proud of this one. Looks better then in pictures and I made the toggle myself. (All stores are closed until Monday:)), so I had a good reason to try.)

For this one I watched a video tutorial from Auntie’s beads, but I didn’t have that kind of beads, so I adapted. Maybe next time I will try their pattern.

 

And some earrings :
