SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Small copper-colored seed beads
  • Medium light teal colored seed beads
  • Large clear colored seed beads
  • Turquoise diamond beads
  • Round copper beads
  • 2 jump rings
  • Beading wire
  • Crimp tubes with loops (6)
  • Lobster clasp and adjustable chain connector
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Measuring tape

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Use a measuring tape to measure your wrist and decide the length you want your bracelet to be. Cut 3 pieces of beading wire the desired length plus 2".
  2. Crimp a tube connector onto one end of a piece of wire. Thread on the cooper circle beads to fill the wire to the desired length leaving the 2" excess. Place a crimp tube on the wire, pull the crimp bead flush with the beads, holding the excess wire crimp in place. Cut off the excess wire.
  3. Repeat step 2 but beading on the turquoise diamond beads.
  4. On the last piece of wire thread on 5 large clear seed beads, then 8 medium light teal beads on either side of the clear beads. Fill in on either side with small copper seed beads until the desired length is filled with seed beads. Place a crimp tube connector on either end of the beading wire pushing it up loosely against the beads and crimp in place. Cut off any excess wire.
  5. Connect one end of each of the 3 beaded strands together with a jump ring. Place a lobster clasp onto the jump ring before closing.
  6. Connect the other 3 ends together with a jump ring and place the adjustable chain end in place before securing closed.

Craft Hack Tips and Tricks:

  • When deciding your length take the added length the lobster clasp will add to the overall length. You have chain to adjust and make the bracelet longer but you cannot make it shorter so make the overall length on the smaller side and adjust as needed.
  • Open and close jump rings by twisting the ring not by pulling the ends apart. This will keep the shape better and its easier to line the ends up again.
