Peach Trinket Wrap Bracelets

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 heart 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 and removing the beige coloured ones. 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 heart bead and string in on. Then go through the second hole of the heart bead.

Step 2

Repeat until you have used all of the heart beads and have an 1.5inches of beads at the end. Test the length of the 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.

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 4

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 4 jumprings and attach your charms to the braclet in your preffered position.
