How to make beaded beads - A modular beaded bracelet step by step

Designed by: Paula Ziemska

Difficulty: Intermediate

Do you like jewellery bases? We do. Sometimes all you need to do is attach several charms and a lovely bracelet is made. Paula Ziemska has taken it a stage further. She has decided to show you how to make beaded beads which will make your jewellery extraordinary. So, if you like modular bracelets with spacers you can work with Paula and make a bracelet for yourself that cannot be bought in any shop. 

To begin, I must admit I don’t have many occasions to work with my needle. But recently I’ve come across a gold metal base made from surgical steel. So I thought to myself that I could do something with the base. I like sharing my ideas so you will also learn with me. Three ways which you can use as a great (and your very own) bracelet base or Pandora bracelets accessory. Interested? So let’s begin!

Supplies used in this project:

Remember, our tutorials are mainly for teaching you the technique and the final effect is always up to you. Let’s do this!

Step 1

BEAD 1

Cut about a 40cm length of thread and thread the needle.

Step 1

Step 2

String CL -> TH8/0 -> CL -> TH8/0.

Step 1

Step 3

Pass the needle through the first CL (CrystaLove) bead and pass the needle around twice. Tie a knot. The working thread should come out of the CL bead.

Step 1

Step 4

String TH8/0 -> CL -> TH8/0 and pass through the bead you exited.

Step 1

Step 5

Pass the needle through all the beads just added (do that every time) and pass through the CL bead.

Step 1

Step 6

Repeat those steps until you there are 7 CL beads.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 7

Put your work around the base.

Step 1

Step 8

String 1 TH8/0 and pass the needle through the CL on the opposite side of your work.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 9

String 1 TH8/0 and repeat the previous step.

Step 1

Step 10

Pass the needle through the beads just added. Both ends are connected. Now we need to tighten our spacer a bit. Pass the needle through the TH8/0 bead and string 1 TH11/0.

Step 1

Step 11

Add TH11/0 beads between TH8/0. You should add 7 TH11/0 beads in total.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 12

Pass the needle towards the bottom part of your work and repeat adding TH11/0 beads.

 Then, pass the needle through all the beads

Step 1

Step 13

Secure the thread and cut it.

Step 1

Step 14

The first spacer is finished.

Step 1

Step 15

Bead 2

 Cut about a 50cm length of thread and thread the needle.

Step 1

Step 16

String CL4 -> CL3 -> CL4 -> CL3.

Step 1

Step 17

As it was done in the first way, pass the needle through the first bead and pass the needle twice around. Tie a knot. The thread should come out of the CL4 bead.

Step 1

Step 18

String CL3 -> CL4 -> CL3 and pass through the bead you exited.

Step 1

Step 19

Pass the needle through the beads just added (do that every time) and pass through the CL4 bead.

Step 1

Step 20

Repeat those steps until there are 6 CL4 beads.

Step 1

Step 21

Connect both ends as it was done in the 1st way. String 1 CL3 bead and pass through the beginning of your work and then connect with the 2nd CL3 bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 22

Pass the needle through this connection and pass through the CL3 bead.

Step 1

Step 23

Add TH11/0 beads (6 in total) between CL3 beads.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 24

Pass towards the bottom part of your work and repeat adding TH11/0 beads.

Step 1

Step 25

This is not the end yet! The thread should come out of the TH11/0 bead. String TH11/0 -> CL3 -> TH11/0 and pass diagonally through the bottom TH11/0 bead.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 26

String the same sequence of beads and pass (diagonally) through the top TH11/0 .

Step 1

Step 27

Secure the thread and cut it.

Step 1

Step 28

The second spacer is finished.

Step 1

Step 29

Beads 3

Cut about a 60cm long piece thread and string SD -> TH11/0 -> SD -> TH11/0 -> SD -> TH11/0 -> SD -> TH11/0.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 30

Pass the needle through the first SD bead and pass through all beads around twice. Tie a knot. Pass through the top hole of a SD bead.

Step 1

Step 31

Add CL4 (4 in total) between the SD beads. Then, pass with the needle around through the beads.

Step 1

Step 32

This spacer is going to be done in a different way. The thread should come out of a CL bead. String SD -> CL4 -> SD -> CL4 -> SD -> CL4 -> SD and pass through the bead you exited.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 33

Pass through the top hole of the SD bead and add TH11/0 (4 in total) between SD beads.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 34

Pass the needle around through the beads and pass through the CL4.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 35

Add one more square the same way.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 36

Now we need to connect those sequences. String SD -> CL4 -> SD and pass though the CL4 at the beginning of your work.

Step 1

Step 37

Repeat that step.

Step 1

Step 38

Pass the needle through this connection to tighten it.

Pass towards the bottom hole of a SD bead and add TH11/0 between SD.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 39

Nearly finished! Pass towards the top CL4 beads and add CL3 between them.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 40

Do the same on the opposite side of your spacer.

Step 1

Step 41

Pass through the beads with the needle, secure the thread and cut it.

Step 1

Step 42

The third spacer is finished.

Step 1

Step 43

Take the base and your optional accessories. String the spacer and bails. Attach the charms to the bails.

Step 1

Step 44

And it’s done!

Step 1

Step 45

Which spacer do you like the most? I have moved towards minimalism recently and due to that I prefer the first spacer bead. But I hope you will like all the spacers and we will see lots of your designs on our group soon. I’m waiting impatiently! Thank you for your attention!

Step 1

Step 46

We’re sure you know now how to make beaded beads. Paula is a great teacher undoubtedly. We’re waiting for your versions of the beaded beads. We really like looking at your designs inspired by our tutorials on our Facebook Group
