Learn how to make this Egyptian inspired 'Sphinx' bracelet, using a mixture of glass beads.

Step 1

Cut a piece of wire approx. 40cm long and thread on one part of the toggle clasp. Thread both ends through a crimp bead and attach to the clasp. Cover with a crimp cover.

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 matching pearls in around 8mm (I used 4 of these) and some matching pearls in around 4mm ( I used 12 of these).

Step 3

Thread both ends of wire through an 8mm pearl. Now separate the ends and add a seed bead to each, followed by a 4mm pearl and a firepolished 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 pearl bead and 1 seed bead. Then bring the strands together and thread both through a firepolished bead. Separate the ends again and add 1 seed bead and 1 pearl bead to each strand before threading on the pyramid bead.

Step 5

Repeat step 4 another 3 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 5th pyramid bead add the following beads to each strand: 1 1 x firepolished bead, 1 x 4mm pearl, 1 seed bead. Now bring the strands together and thread through an 8mm pearl. Crimp to the other side of the clasp and cover with a crimp cover.
