The talented Agnieszka Wajzer-Nowak will show you how to make BOHO bracelets in our latest video tutorial. Colourful, unique and with the addition of charms and tassels - perfect for any summer outfit. The design gives unlimited possibilities for modification - it's easy to make one that will fully reflect your style. Ready? Let's get Creative! ❤

You can add all the items you need to your basket by clicking the box in the 'Products used' section above, or you can let your imagination run wild and choose your own materials from the links below. Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

  • TOHO beads size 6/0 - Aga used 3 different colours. You can use more or less, use a contrast or, on the contrary, choose beads of similar shades.
  • Toggle Clasp 
  • Oval Cabochon - 18x25mm oval shape. In your bracelet, you can use a cabochon with a different pattern, but also shape or size. If you don't like graphic cabochons, you can use Semi Precious Cabochons
  • Oval Cabochon Setting - make sure that the base of the pendant matches the cabochon of your choice. The description of the base contains information about its dimensions, but also which cabochon it fits. The base fits a 13x18mm cabochon, has dimensions of 14x22mm
  • Calottes - you can also modify the colours in your design. In one of the bracelets Aga used metals in the colour of antique bronze, in the other silver. You can also choose different shades of gold.
  • Tassel - in the colourful bracelet Aga used a larger 45mm tassel and 30mm in the blue one
  • Spacer Beads  - Rounds in sizes 4 and 5 mm, enrich the bracelet and are a nice alternative to coloured beads
  • Charms - here is complete freedom :), when choosing a pendant, make sure that the metal from which it is made is in the same shade as the rest of the metal blanks used to create the bracelet (clasp, rings, catchers, etc.)
  • Jump Rings - in two sizes, the smaller circles will be attached to the catchers and the larger circle, which in turn will be attached to the clasp. For example, small circles will be appropriate
  • Cord - 1mm waxed cotton or coated twine. It is practically invisible in the bracelet, so you can use any colour.
  • Glue - fast-drying glue

Remember that the tutorial is primarily used to learn the technique - you can make a completely different bracelet using the method presented by Agnieszka - just choose other beads, charms and connectors. Do not be afraid of experiments, because they are the coolest in handmade <3!
