How to make a beaded jewellery set – beaded jewellery step by step

Information about this project

Rating:

A season for jewellery is in full swing all year round. And it’s good because the amount of patterns is endless and 365 days is actually not enough to show everything one has in their drawer. Sometimes you may wear one, simple bracelet only changing the accessories and look different each time. If it’s not enough for you, Monika will show you how to make a beaded jewellery set. A bracelet and earrings. The pattern is based on one element only which can be used to create your own projects. Let’s do this!

Supplies used in this project:

Step 1

As you learn how to make this beaded set, try to experiment with it. Nothing is as satisfying as making your very own version of a bracelet or earrings.

Are you ready to make this beaded jewellery set? Good luck!

Step 1

Step 2

Cut a piece of thread (not too long, about 30 cm), string 4 GEMDUOs and 4 NIB-BITs alternately, stringing TOHO beads between them, as shown in the picture.

Step 1

Step 3

Tie a knot to close the beads in a circle.

Step 1

Step 4

Pass the needle through the beads so that the thread comes out of a GEMDUO bead.

Step 1

Step 5

Pass through the top hole of a GEMDUO.

Step 1

Step 6

String 2 TOHO beads and pass the needle through the next NIB-BIT.

Step 1

Step 7

String 2 TOHO and pass the needle through a GEMDUO bead. Continue adding 2 TOHO until you have completed the whole row.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 8

Pass the needle so that the thread comes out of a TOHO bead just before a GEMDUO bead.

Step 1

Step 9

String 5 TOHO and pass the needle through a TOHO bead just behind the GEMDUO. Pass the needle so that the thread comes out before a GEMDUO bead at the corner.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 10

String 5 TOHO, pass the needle through the bead behind GEMDUO and pass the needle through the beads towards the last TOHO at the corner.

Step 1

Step 11

Repeat that on each side.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 12

Pass the needle around through the beads omitting one, central TOHO bead at each corner. The thread should go under those omitted beads. Our square will get a nice shape then.

Step 1

Step 13

You may tie a knot between the beads, pass the thread through the beads and then cut it. Pass around through the beads with the tail thread and cut it. You may also tie a knot with the tail thread between the beads.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 14

As you have made the desirable number of the elements, it’s time to connect them. I made 8 of them – 6 for a bracelet and 2 for the earrings.

Step 1

Step 15

You may use a longer piece of a thread to make the last square or to tie a new one to connect the bracelet. I tied a new thread between the beads. Pass the needle so that the thread comes out of the central bead at the corner (the omitted one). I’ve got two elements connected here, but the idea is the same. The thread comes out of the central bead at the corner.

Step 1

Step 16

String 1 Fire Polish bead and pass the needle through the central bead at the corner of the next square.

Step 1

Step 17

Do the same to connect the rest of the elements.

Step 1

Step 18

Pass the needle through the side beads towards the opposite side of the square. Stop before the NIB-BIT bead, string 7 TOHO and pass through the NIB-BIT making a loop for a clasp. You may also pass the needle around the square and tighten the loop passing through it once again.

Step 1

Step 19

Pass the needle towards the bottom corner, string 1 Fire Polish to connect the bottom parts of the elements as it was done previously.

Step 1

Step 20

As you have connected all of the elements, make a loop as previously.

Step 1

Step 21

And here it is!

Step 1

Step 22

Attach the clasp.

Step 1

Step 23

Now you can wear it.

As for the earrings, you may pass a jump ring through a central TOHO bead at the corner gently or make a loop of 15/0 TOHO beads and GEMDUO or NIB-BIT. You may also make a pendant or even a whole, imposing necklace. It’s all up to you!

Step 1

Step 24
