Gemini Bracelets | Mini-Make Monday

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..

Project Tutorial

  1. Take a length of wire and sting on your beads alternating between Preciosa flat round and hematite cubes or polygon spacer beads.
  2. 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.
  3. Attach a new length of wire to the lobster clasp as in step 2.
  4. 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.
