I started with 4 strings of beads. I used a crimping bead and fed all four strings through, and then crimped. I did this at both ends so that the beads wouldn't come flying off. People who follow me on Facebook know that I did this precaution after those beads came off several times. Eventually, I learn. :)
In this photo, you can see the crimp bead with all four strings fed through it.
After you crimp both ends, lay out your bracelet flat. To get the twist, hold down the right-hand end with your right hand and don't let go throughout all of the steps.
Separate the first strand from the rest of the strands.
Pick up the left-hand end of the bracelet and fish it underneath that first strand that you separated. You'll notice in this photo that I moved my right hand. That was only to take the photo. Don't move your right hand. :) (again with the smiley face)
Pull the left-hand strands all the way through and re-straighten the bracelet. Next, you want to move over the first and second strands.
Once again, take the left-hand end of the bracelet and fish it underneath the first two strands that you separated. (keep your right hand holding it down)
And pull it through.
Next, you separate the first, second, and third strands. You probably figured that out already, didn't you.
Keep repeating (the next step would be back to separating away the first strand again), until your bracelet has the right amount of twist. When you're happy, go ahead and fasten on a jump ring on one end and a lobster clasp to the other. That's it - you're done. All that's left to do is show it off.
As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. It's tricky to explain, and I clearly needed at least one more hand for the photos, lol.
This is where I'm partying:
