This bracelet from Katie Hacker works well in a variety of color combinations. Try mixing pink teardrops with green rectangles or red teardrops with black rectangles.

Bubblicious Bracelet Finished Product

Materials:

  • 16” length of .015” diameter gold Beadalon 7 beading wire
  • 12 gold #2 Beadalon crimp beads
  • 40 blue 10mm teardrop glass beads
  • 4 clear/blue18mm oval glass beads
  • 2 blue E beads
  • Gold toggle clasp
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Crimping tool

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut the beading wire into two equal lengths.
     
  2. Hold the wires together as one and pass one end through a crimp bead and half of the clasp.
     
  3. Pass the wires back through the crimp bead and use a crimping tool to crimp it.
     
  4. Pass the wires through one E bead and another crimp bead. Crimp it.
     
  5. Separate the wires and pass each one through four teardrop beads.
     
  6. Hold the wires together again and pass them through a crimp bead (don’t crimp it), a clear/blue oval bead and another crimp bead.
     
  7. Repeat Steps 5-6 three more times.
     
  8. Separate the wires and pass each one through four teardrop beads.
     
  9. Hold the wires together and pass them through a crimp bead, an E bead, crimp bead and half of the clasp.
     
  10. Pass the wires back through the crimp bead and use a crimping tool to crimp both crimp beads.
     
  11. Pull gently on the bracelet to make sure the crimps are secure and then cut off any extra wire.

 

Tips:

  1. Substitute daggers, pear-shaped or briolette beads instead of teardrops for a similar look. E bead is a common name for size 6/0 seed beads.
     
  2. This bracelet fits a 7” wrist. To adjust the pattern for a different size, use a bead board to arrange the beads and measure before stringing.

@techqu767 7014694: Thanks for catching this mistake! We have updated the materials list. Thanks! -- Editor of FaveCrafts

I believe the correct amount of blue teardrop beads for this size bracelet is 40. There are five sections of teardrops consisting of eight beads (4 on each strand).
