Information about this project
Designed by: Joanne Lockwood
Joanne has been playing with the Frozen™ range and she has made this beautiful beaded cuff.
I have been looking at these Connector Bars for some time and pondering what I could do with them. When the new Frozen™ range arrived I knew I had found my latest favourite range.
The rich red of these raspberry beads really pops against the bars and faceted rondelles. I hope you enjoy this little tutorial aimed at beady beginners. Happy Stringing! Jo xx
Supplies used in this project:
Frozen ™ round 10mm raspberry beads
Frozen ™ rondelle 4x6mm grey beads
TOHO™ size 8/0 round seed beads in gold lustered raspberry
Connector Bars 2x25mm silver bars
Findings kit in silver plated
Cut 2x 30cm lengths of wire, attach one length of wire to a jump ring using crimp beads. Flatten the crimp bead onto the wire using your flat nose pliers.
Thread 10 size 8/0 seed beads, thread through one of the holes in the connector bar.
Continue in the sequence below until you have reached your desired length. I made an 8" bracelet using 10 Frozen round beads and 11 Frozen rondelle beads.
1x connector bar
1x 10mm round
1x connector bar
Once you have reached the end of your bracelet add on 10 seed beads and attach your wire to a jump ring using a crimp bead.
Repeat the above steps to create the other side of your bracelet.
To finish, join both ends of your bracelet with a jump ring and loop on a lobster clasp. Twist close to secure the clasp in place.
Attach another jump ring onto the other end by looping it thorugh the two end jump rings and twist close to secure in place.
