How to make a beaded bracelet - step by step ginko bracelet

Magda decided to prepare a new Ginko Beaded Bracelet Design just for you! The finished bracelet is extremely elegant and effective. So if you have Ginko, Gemduo and Firepolish beads on hand, don't hesitate! Let's start!

Materials;

Ginko beads - 2 packs. I used 42 pieces for this bracelet, but it all depends on the desired length of the bracelet. 

Gemduo - 6/7 pieces depending on the size of the bracelet you would like to make

Firepolish beads - 3mm and 4mm

Toho beads - 15/0 and 11/0 and 8/0

Jump Rings 

Lobster Clasp

Thread

Needle

Scissors

Remember - Don't limit yourself to one colour, experiment with different colours to get a completely different effect. 

Step 1

Cut a long piece of thread and add your needle. To start, add a stopper bead so that the beads do not fall off the bracelet as we are threading them. Thread a 4mm Fire Polish bead, 2 Ginko, 1 GemDuo, and again 2 Ginko.

It is important which side you thread the Ginko beads. For simplicity, I suggest that the first two Ginko are threaded from the concave side, then the GemDuo (pay attention that it is on the correct side) and then the next two Ginko from the rounded side.

Step 1

Step 2

Repeat the pattern according to step 1 until you get the right length. Add a Fire Polish 4mm bead at the end.

Step 1

Step 3

Thread 1 x TOHO 11, 1 x TOHO 8 (to this bead then add a your lobster clasp through the soldered loop (if you are using a different type of clasp then just add a TOHO 8 instead), 1 x TOHO 11 and go through the Ginko bead.

Step 1

Step 4

Thread a Ginko (from concave side), go through the GemDuo, then thread a Ginko again (this time from the convex side), go through the next Ginko. Thread a Fire Polish 4mm and go through the Ginko. Repeat the pattern adding beads along the entire length of the bracelet.

Step 1

Step 5

Thread a FirePolish 4mm, TOHO 11, TOHO 8 (to this bead then add a jump ring (if you are using a different type of fastener then add a TOHO 8 instead), TOHO 11 and go through the Ginko.

Step 1

Step 6

To strengthen the bracelet, sew back through the beads again.

Step 1

Step 7

Thread 5x TOHO 15 and go through the Ginko, thread a FirePolish 3mm, go through the Ginko again and thread 5x TOHO 15.

Note: Sometimes the TOHO 15 coating makes them thicker in which case you can add 4 beads instead of 5. The point is that they are not too tight. If they are too tight, the bracelet may wave.

Step 1

Step 8

Repeat step 7 on the entire side of the bracelet.

Step 1

Step 9

Go to the other side of the bracelet and continue adding beads.

Step 1

Step 10

To strengthen the bracelet, sew back through the beads again. Then make a double knot, go through a few beads and cut the thread.

Step 1

Step 11

Take off the stopper bead, make a double knot, go through a few beads and cut the thread.

Voila! Bracelet ready!
