This design is now in our inspirations archive. As this design was created some time ago we sadly no longer stock all the products to create our design, but can still be useful for inspiration.

Please note: This bracelet was originally made from Vintaj products, we have now discontinued it and replaced it with Trinity Brass Products

Step 1

Thread beads from the topaz and green Czech bead mixes alternately onto the brown wire. Continue threading until you have used the majority of the beads in both packs, or until one pack runs out.

Step 2

Leave an end of approx 30cm. Working towards the reel so you have plenty of wire to use, twist each bead onto the wire. Leave approx. 1cm space between each bead, and continue until all beads are twisted on.

Step 3

Measure the length of the bracelet by trying it around your wrist. Bend at the length you want the bracelet to be, so the wire comes back on itself. If the beaded end is too long, bend and bring it back on itself again.

Step 4

With the wire bent as above, twist together to create the base of your bracelet. Try to make sure the beads are spread fairly evenly by changing their position if necessary.

Step 5

Leave an end of approx. 30cm and snip from the reel. If both ends of wire are at one side, or if one end is in the middle, weave through the bracelet so there is a wire tail at either side.

Step 6

Thread the loop of the toggle clasp on to the wire and twist to secure. Repeat with the other end to add the bar part of the clasp.

Step 7

Weave the wire ends until they come through the main bracelet. Decide which will be the front of your bracelet and add leaf and butterfly charms to the ends of wire. Secure by weaving the wire into the bracelet.

Step 8

Add one large leaf to the centre in the same way. Weave the ends in to the bracelet and snip off any excess.

Tips: If you run out of wire to add the charms or clasp, just add some more. It’s really easy to hide the ends by simply wrapping in to the main bracelet.
