Cherish Bracelet Crackled Blue

Information about this project

Difficulty: Intermediate


This turquoise cherish bracelet is vibrant and glittering. The crackle glass chip beads are polished smoothly but the crackles inside glisten as they catch the light. The shamballa fashion beads are a slightly darker tone of turquoise so they stand out as they sparkle on your wrist. You’ll turn heads when you’ve finished your Make Break and you’re wearing your glitzy turquoise cherish bracelet this weekend!

video tutorial which shows you how to complete the technique. In the video we use pearl beads, but the technique is just the same!

Step 1

Cut 3 pieces of elastic around 30cm long. Thread all 3 through one shamballa fashion bead. Now separate the strands and thread 9 semi-precious chip beads on to each strand.

Step 2

Repeat until you have added 7 large shamballa fashion beads, making sure that your bracelet ends with a shamballa fashion bead either side.

Step 3

Thread on the charm carrier and tie the ends of the elastic together, hiding the knot under the charm carrier.  Add a dab of glue (or clear nail varnish) to the knot to secure it. Snip off any excess elastic.

Step 4

Attach your chosen charm to a lobster clasp using a jump ring. Clip the lobster clasp to the charm carrier for a clip-on, clip-off changeable charm!

Please Note: You may want to adjust the count of semi-precious chip beads or shamballa fashion beads to ensure the bracelet is the correct fit for your wrist.
