Somehow, when I saw these beautiful glass beads they made me think of the sea. They made me want to make something inspired by the waves. Ready? Let's Get Creative!

You can add all the items you need for the bracelet to your basket by clicking the box in the 'Products used' section above, or you can let your imagination run wild and choose your own materials from the links below. Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products Used List':

Remember - our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream jewellery.

Step 1

First, double over a 40cm length of thread and loop it through a jump ring.

Step 2

Next, pick up two P10, GB, MG, five P10, TG, MG, one P10. Then using the final P10 as a stopper bead, sew up through all beads and the jump ring again.

After that, tie off the thread and sew down through the tassel, cutting off remaining threads neatly. Make two.

After that, we are going to use the jump rings to attach the tassels to the chandelier connector in a symmetrical fashion (or randomly, if you prefer)

Step 8

Next, using the same method as the tassels, we are going to make two sides of the necklace. Beginning with the jump ring at one end and finish one with a lobster clasp and the other with a jump ring. You may prefer to make yours a different length or complete it as I have done. The sequence I have used is: five P10, GB, five P10, MG, GB, five P10, TG, ten P10, MG, TG, twenty P10, MG, five P10, TG, ten P10, TG, MG, TG, thirty p10.
