Soutache bracelet step by step - DIY tutorial for beginners

Designed by: Jasamira

Difficulty: Beginner

Rating:

Together with Jasamira, we invite you to a DIY tutorial, in which we will show you how this soutache bracelet is made, step by step. The bracelet is not difficult to make, so this tutorial is ideal for beginners who want to start their adventure with soutache. Let's get started!

Materials Needed;

Soutache Cord – I used PEGA string – we will need 4 sections of 50cm

TOHO beads – size 11/0

Natural stones – I used Agate round 8mm beads for the orange bracelet. For the purple bracelet, I used a 6x8mm rectangle-shaped hematite bead. 

Crystals – Rondelle 4x6mm

Jewellery clasp – a magnetic fastener with a hole of 8.5 x 2.5mm will be suitable for the orange bracelet, and for the purple one, which is slightly wider, a fastening with a hole of 10x3mm

Jewellery thread – One-G in a shade similar to the color scheme of the design

Jewellery needle – John James – threading needle 10/13 beads

Jewellery Glue – I used strong poxipol
