How to make a beaded bracelet

 

Step 1: Cut a length of beading string approximately 1 meter long and thread your needle. Secure an anchor bead in a contrasting colour, leaving a tail approximately 6 inches long. String 12 beads and push them down against the anchor bead.

 

Step 2: Holding the string of beads securely, thread another bead onto your needle and slide your needle back through the second bead from the end (the eleventh bead). Tighten your beads.

 

Step 3: Pick up another bead with your needle, skip a bead and slide your needle into the next bead (the ninth one), tightening it into place. Repeat this step until you get to the end of your row of beads. When you get to the end, simply pick up another bead, skip a bead and insert your needle back into the next bead in the other direction. Do this until you have woven a piece that is approximately 5.5 inches long. Weave in all thread ends through the beads.

 

Step 4: Squeeze a thin line of jewellery glue on the inside edges of your mesh clasp and insert the end of the bracelet into it. Using pliers, firmly clamp the clasp closed. Do this with both sides of the bracelet. Let the bracelet sit for 1 hour before wearing. The bond will strengthen over 48 hours.

You will need:

  • 11/0 Miyuki beads
  • Embroidery needle (small enough to fit through 11/0 size beads)
  • Beading wire or thread
  • Mesh clasp
  • Jewellery glue
  • Scissors
  • Flat-nosed pliers
  • Experiment with mixing more than one colour of bead into your project.
