Difficulty: Beginner


*SALE MAKE* Learn how to create a pair of pretty seed bead bracelets with cut out beads and cute little charms from The Biggest Sale Ever.

Step 1

*Please note that due to the irregular shape of the seed beads, you will need to pick out the smaller ones to fit inside the cut out flower beads*

For this project, one necklace strand of seed beads will be required to make 1 bracelet. Leaving you with more beads to make matching designs! Begin by cutting a strand of beads onto your bead board. Using the wire in your findings kit, string on approx. 1.5 inches of beads. Then go through the first hole of a metal flower bead. Find a seed bead that will fit inside the metal flower bead and string in on. Then go through the second hole of the flower bead.

Step 2

Repeat until you have used all of the flower beads and have an 1.5inches of beads at the end. Test the length of th braclet against your wrist and add or remove beads to get the correct size. Once you are happy with the length, you will need to finish the end with a calotte and crimp bead from your findings kit. To do this, leave a good 6 inch of tail thread at the end of your beads and thread on a calotte and then a crimp bead. Slide them down next to the beads. Thread the wire back through the calotte and into the beads. Squash the crimp bead flat with crimp pliers (or alternatly flat nose pliers) and close the calotte around it and trim the wire tail if necessary.

Step 3

Finish the opposite end in the same way. Then connect the calottes to a jumpring each. On one side attach the lobster clasp. Apply a small drop of glue to the crystal setting charms and allow to dry before proceding. Wrap up the bracelet and decide where you want your charms to sit. Open 3 jumprings and attach your charms to the braclet in your preffered position.
