Description

I like creating simple beaded bracelets with an added twist. This bracelet is easier to create than you can imagine. Simply adding seed beads to beading wire and running your wire through the same beads multiple time gives a simple bead an embellishment that is sure to be noticed!

Shanna Steele, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:


  1. Cut a piece of beading wire measuring about 30". String a 10mm bead on the center of the wire.
  2. String 8 seed beads on the right. Run your wire back through the bead. String 8 seed beads on the left. Run the wire back through the bead.
  3. Repeat step 2 one more time so you have 4 rows of seed beads running across your bead. Take the time to position these beads and pull on your wires snugly so the beads stay in place and are equidistant on the bead.
  4. Put a bead stopper to one side of the embellished bead.
  5. String a seed bead, helix bead, seed bead, rondelle, seed bead, helix bead, seed bead and a 10mm round.
  6. Repeat the process from steps 2 and 3 to embellish the 10mm bead just added.
  7. String a seed bead, helix bead, seed bead, rondelle, seed bead, helix bead, seed bead, crimp bead, and another seed bead. Add half of your toggle clasp. Run the wire back down through the seed bead, crimp bead, seed bead and helix bead. Use your chain nose pliers to crimp. Cut excess wire.
  8. Remove the bead stopper from the other side. Repeat steps 5 through 7 to complete the piece.
