Simple Wire Bracelet With Crimps

Difficulty: Beginner


This simple bracelet design shows you how to use crimp beads and Beadalon wire. You can create a bracelet link this using any manner of beads strung in any pattern, so experiment and have fun!

To buy all the materials we have used here click the 'materials' tab and you can add everything to your basket in one go.

You Will Need:

8mm beads in 2 colours

Crimp beads

Lobster clasp

Jump ring

Tools (not included on 'Materials' tab as you may already have them)

Standard Crimping Pliers

Flat Nose Pliers

Scissors or Wire Cutters

wearing bracelet

Step 1

Cut a piece of wire approx. 30cm long. Thread a crimp bead on to one end.

Step 2

Thread the wire through the lobster clasp and then back through the crimp bead.

Step 3

Place the crimp in the back recess of the crimping pliers. Close the pliers. This will create a half moon shape with the crimp bead.

Step 4

Now remove the crimp and place into the front cavity so the crimp creates a 'c' shape as you look at it. Close the pliers again and the crimp bead should form a rounded shape.

Step 5

Now thread on your beads alternating one colour after the other. I added X beads which made a bracelet that was X long.

Step 6

After your last bead thread on a crimp bead.

Step 7

Thread the wire through a jump ring, making sure the ring is tightly closed or the wire could slip out of the gap. Now thread the wire back through the crimp bead and through about 3 of the strung beads to hide the end of wire. Crimp to secure following steps 3 to 4.

Step 8

Cut off any excess wire that is sticking out below the third bead you threaded back through. Make sure you don't cut through the centre thread when doing this.
