We’re using all NEW beads for this week’s Mini-Make project, including Preciosa pressed glass flat rounds, Hematite cubes, and rose gold plated polygon rounds. If you love working with shaped two hole beads, this is a really simple project that you can adapt to your own colour preferences and finishes. We made two versions, one using elastic and the other with beading wire, finished with a lobster clasp. The rainbow hue of the Hematite cubes add a beautiful colour interest, whilst the rose gold polygons have a trending geometric edge! Choose your style and get beading..

- Take a length of wire and sting on your beads alternating between Preciosa flat round and hematite cubes or polygon spacer beads.
- Once you reach a length of approx. 6 inches, string a crimp bead on the end, go through a lobster clasp and pass the tail of the wire back through the crimp bead. Squash the crimp with your pliers and trim the excess from the end.
- Attach a new length of wire to the lobster clasp as in step 2.
- Fill in the gaps with spacer beads, passing the wire through each of the Preciosa flat round beads. Finish the ends onto a jumpring using the same technique in step 2.
