As promised, here’s a new tutorial! We seem to doing a lot of bracelet tutorials as of late, but this one is so simple and literally took me less than 5 minutes to do I couldn’t not do a post on it!
Inspired by the many beautiful chandeliers I saw in Europe, I had a few of these crystal-ish looking clear beads lying around and decided to make a bracelet. This particular photo was taken in the Hall of Mirrors; in the Palace of Versailles, Paris.
Here are the materials you’ll need:-
- Plastic clear beads (or any other beads you’ll prefer)
- Elastic jewelry cord
- Crimp beads
- Jewelry pliers (not pictured)
Step 1. Cut a piece of the elastic jewelry cord slightly longer than the circumference of your wrist. I also arranged the beads in a row according to how i wanted to string them to make things easier.
Step 2. Start stringing the beads onto the cord.
Step 3. Check that the beaded area goes all the way around your wrist, then tie a double knot to secure the bracelet. Do not pull or stretch the cord too much.
Step 4. Finish off the bracelet and secure the knot with a crimp bead. Use the pliers to flatten the bead and cut off the excess cord.
And you’re done!!! :)
Wear it and feel like a
chandelier million bucks! :)
