This delicate 'Amulet' bracelet is beautiful and rich, mixing shades of purple and lilac with black and gold.

Follow this tutorial on how to make this Egyptian inspired 'Amulet' bracelet, using a mixture of glass beads.

Step 1

Cut a piece of wire approx. 40cm long and thread on a crimp bead. Place it in the centre of the wire and crimp. Fold the wire in half and thread through a necklace end (calotte).  Close the necklace end.

Step 2

Sort through your glass mix to make sure you have enough similar beads to complete your bracelet - each mix differs so it's best to check this before you start. Look for some crackle beads in around 8mm (I used 3 of these) and some oval beads (I used 2 of these).

Step 3

Thread both ends of wire through an 8mm crackle bead. Now separate the ends and add a seed bead to each, followed by a  firepolished bead and another seed bead on each strand. Now thread one end through each of the holes on the pyramid bead. 

Step 4

Keeping the 2 ends separate, add the following beads to each: 1 seed bead, 1 firepolished bead, 1 seed bead. Then bring the strands together and thread both through an oval bead. Separate the ends again and add 1 seed bead, 1 firepolished bead and 1 seed bead to each strand before threading on the pyramid bead.

Step 5

Repeat step 4 another 2 times but vary the beads if you wish. You will need to add the seed beads to make sure you don't see any of the wire as you bring the 2 pieces together.

Step 6

After the 4th pyramid bead add the following beads to each strand: 1 x seed bead, 1 x firepolished bead, 1 seed bead. Now bring the strands together and thread through an 8mm crackle bead. Add the necklace and and a crimp, secure and close the necklace end. Attach a large jump ring to one end and a small jump ring with a lobster clasp to the other.
