How to make a Hugs and Kisses bracelet - step by step video tutorial

Information about this project

Designed by: Leah Connolly

Difficulty: Beginner


It’s not often I steer away from my favourite colour blue but with a little help from Jo on the colours, I’ve made the Hugs and Kisses bracelet with these beautiful green and purple tones. Is anyone else like that, or is it just me, most of my handmade jewellery is blue.

I know you all love the Hugs and Kisses design by Sarah Millsop and I wanted to recreate this work of art using our new products.

I’m so pleased with the finished piece, as the bracelet can look so difference when using different colours/beads. This is the beauty of this design, it is very versatile.

The green Mistic™ beads I’ve used are so magical and glisten in the sunlight. When I wear this bracelet, it reminds me of a cute little caterpillar hehe. So, will you join me in creating a cute caterpillar of your own?  

Supplies used in this project:

4mm CrystaLove™ bicones in milky pistachio

8mm Mistic™ round beads in matte green

TOHO™ Treasures in size 6/0 Silver lined light grape and size 11/0 opaque matte lilac

TOHO™ rounds in size 11/0 amethyst rainbow

2 x Needles – you will need one on each end of the thread

Thread – I used white KO beading thread
