How to make a side by side montee weave bracelet - jewellery making tutorial

Information about this project

Designed by: Olivia Newton

Difficulty: Beginner


Olivia decided to recreate the popular Side By Side Montee Weave Bracelet, designed originally by Sarah Millsop, using the beautiful Seashell pearl beads, Miyuki™ size 11 seed beads and sparkling Swarovski™ chaton montees.

I love the shimmery pastel pink pearls together with the glistening crystal AB montees, they give off a beautiful sparkle as the crystals hit the sunlight. It’s such a simple yet stunning bracelet, perfect to wear for any occasion. With so many colour variants to choose from, the possibilities are endless! Follow our Take A Make Break Tutorial below to make your own.


Seashell Pearls in 6mm. I chose the colour pink.

Miyuki™ Round Seed Beads in size 11. I chose the colour Transparent Crystal AB.

Swarovski™ Chaton Montees – 4mm in the colour Crystal AB.
