How to make a bracelet using square tile beads - jewellery making tutorial

Designed by: Paula Banaszak

Difficulty: Intermediate

Rating:

Together with Paula Banaszak, we invite you to a jewellery making tutorial, in which we will show you how to make a remarkable bracelet from several types of glass beads. Shades of purple have been used in this design, however feel free to choose your preferred colours. Get inspired and create your own versions of the lavender bracelet. Let's stitch!

You will need:
*Matubo SuperDuo ™ beads 2x5mm
*Preciosa square tile beads 6mm - Miyuki Square Tila 5x5mm make a good substitute
*Size 15/0 seed beads (15/0)
*Size 11/0 seed beads (11/0)
*Lobster Clasp
*Jump ring 8mm
*Beading Thread or monofilment
*Needle
*Scissors

Remember that our tutorials are mainly designed to teach you technique and bring inspiration, so your jewellery doesn't have to look exactly like the one in the tutorial. Don't be afraid to experiment with shapes and colours.

Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'.
