Colorful crystal bracelet tutorial

April 08, 2016

Hello people!  I'm here with a tutorial on how to make an easy crystal bracelet in collaboration with Pandahall today. I love glass crystal beads and always wanted to try making bracelets which is my favorite piece of jewelry to wear. This bracelet is very easy to make and perfect for beginners who want to try their hands at making jewelry. Pandahall has wonderful collections of Jewelry beads and findings for cheap price if you are looking for jewelry making supplies online. Do go ahead and check their website if you are interested. Now let's see how to make this bracelet.

Materials needed: 
Glass beads of assorted colors (I used Faceted abacus transparent glass beads from Pandahall)
Golden seed beads
Tigertail beading wire
Jump rings
Jewelry clasps (I've used S hook clasp)
Crimp beads

Step 1: take a beading wire of length 90 cms and fold it into half.
Step 2: place a jump ring at the folded part and enclose it with a crimp bead.
Step 3: start by crossing both wire with a white glass bead
Step 4: add a seed bead followed by a color crystal alternatively on both side of wires.
Step 5: cross both wires using a white glass bead.

Step 6: now you've made one full loop of colorful glass beads enclosed with a white bead.
Step 7: repeat step 4 and 5 until you've reached the desired length,
Step 8: Finish it off by threading the wire into crimp bead, jump ring and the clasp and again pass it through the crimp bead so that your clasp is secured. Cut off the excess wire after making it pass through some bead for making it strong.
And your colorful crystal bracelet is done!
