  1. This project uses basic beading techniques. You can learn straight stringing and crimping techniques by watching this video. If you create your piece using these instructions, you will make a 6 1/2 inch bracelet (it should fit snugly, cuff style). Simply add a few beads to make the bracelet longer to fit a larger wrist.
  2. Cut 6 pieces of wire, 14 inches each. Crimp a piece of wire to the first of the 6 loops. String a pattern of 4 jasper beads, 1 bicone, 4 jasper beads, 1 bicone, etc. until you have strung about 50 beads. Put a bead stopper on the end to hold the beads in place. Repeat this process 5 more times to complete all the loops on one side of the clasp.
  3. Holding two strands together, braid the strands of beads.
  4. Crimp the strands to the corresponding holes on the other side of the clasp.

beautiful bracelet
I got enough material enough for 4 bracelets but it's almost impossible to find the 6 strand clasp. So I've only made one so far, for my sister-in-law to wear at her son's wedding next year. It is stunning as advertized. I got the pink and also some blue jasper because my S in L wears that colour blue. Gorgeous!! I'm doing it in yellow too.

Remake but loved it
I wanted to make this for my grandma and I ended up changing a lot but I plan to make one closer to the original soon. I used 8mm green Jasper since my grandma likes green and bulky jewelry. I changed the clasp to a hook and loop type since the magnetic one seemed to strong for her as well. I also make it only 3 strands instead of 6, since 6 with 8mm would be super heavy. And I also changed out the bicones for white pearls. Overall I love how it turned out.

Prettier in real life!
I made this braclet following Kelly's instructions and it's really pretty. I made one with turquoise colored beads and the clear crystals. I think the clasp is great, but it seems a little heavy with the 6mm beads. I'm going to try making one with 8mm beads. We'll see if it works! :) Anyway, thank you for the instructions, Kelly!

Questions and Answers

Q: I made this bracelet over the weekend. It's very, very pretty; however, I'm not completely happy with the way mine turned out on one end. No matter which position I ended the strand, two strands appear not to be exactly right. Did anyone else have this issue with this bracelet? Thank you.
Asked by: Donna Gunter - 6/29/2015
A: I have not heard that from anyone else, though I am not sure what exactly the problem you are having is. The instructions say to braid the strands, were they of equal length?
