Ultra Violet Queen Bracelet

Designed by: Katrina

Difficulty: Beginner


Make yourself a gorgeous bracelet in one of our most popular patterns! This version is inspired by Pantone's Colour of the Year 2018 'Ultra Violet' and usesPreciosa candy beads, Swarovski crystal chatons and bicones for a glamorous look!

Step 1

Cut a 1-metre length of wire and find the centre point. Thread on the bar of the toggle clasp to the centre. Thread a crimp bead onto both ends of the wire and slide it up next to the clasp. Thread the wire back through the crimp bead, pull it tight and squash the crimp bead flat.

Step 2

Thread a bicone onto both strands of wire. Onto each strand, string on another bicone, 6mm gemstone, bicone and then a metal connector. Then string on a bicone, 6mm gemstone and a candy bead. On the same strand you will now mirror the pattern with a 6mm gemstone, bicone and a metal connector. Repeat the pattern (connector bicone, 6mm, candy bead, 6mm, bicone, connector). After your 5th connector, check the size against your wrist. 

Step 3

Complete the strand of the bracelet with a bicone, 6mm gemstone and another bicone. If you haven't already, take your second strand of wire and mirror the pattern above, first by adding a bicone, 6mm gemstone, bicone and then going through the other hole of the metal connector.

Step 4

When you reach the end and have added your bicone, 6mm gemstone and bicone, pass both wires through another bicone. Then thread a crimp bead onto both strands, pass the wires through the loop of the clasp and bring them back through the crimp bead. Pull the wires so the crimp bead in snug against the clasp. Squash the crimp bead flat and weave the tail ends into your design. Finish by glueing your crystals into the connector settings and allow to dry before wearing your bracelet.
