Nightlife Bracelet and Earrings

By:

You can use any monochromatic color scheme for this bracelet from Katie Hacker. Try shades of red, purple, turquoise or green for an equally dramatic effect.

Materials:

Bracelet:

  • .018 diameter bright Beadalon 19 Strand More Flexible Bead Stringing Wire
  • About 30 assorted black/metallic mixed seed beads
  • About 180 assorted black/metallic 8mm glass beads
  • Six 2mm silver crimp tubes silver toggle clasp
  • 24-gauge Silver craft wire
  • Designer Crimper
  • Nipper tool

Earrings:

  • 18 assorted black/metallic 6/0 seed beads
  • Six 1 1/2" silver head pins
  • 2 silver ear wires
  • Two 8mm jump rings
  • Beadstorm™ Round Nose Pliers
  • Beadstorm™ Chain Nose Pliers
  • Nipper tool

Steps:

Bracelet:

  1. Cut six 9 1/2" lengths of Beadalon 19 Strand More Flexible Wire. Hold two strands together and string a crimp tube 1/2" from the end. String the Beadalon wire through half of the clasp and back into the crimp tube to form a small loop. Use a crimping tool to crimp the crimp tube. Repeat for the other sets of two strands.
     
  2. Working with one strand at a time, string sections of 1/2"-1" of mixed seed beads alternating with 8mm beads. The look is very random, so don't spend too much time on bead placement. Place a piece of tape over the last inch of beading wire to prevent the beads from sliding off while you work on the next strand.
     
  3. When you've beaded each strand, use crimp tubes to attach the clasp as in Step 1. Cut a 1" length of craft wire. Hold the crimp tubes together and wrap the wire tightly around them to create a decorative coil. Repeat for the other end of the bracelet.

Earring:

  1. String a black bead and three 6/0 beads onto a head pin. Use round nose pliers to make a loop above the black bead. Cut off any extra wire and attach the beaded head pin to a jump ring. Use two 6/0 beads, a silver bead and a 6/0 bead to make a beaded head pin and attach it to the jump ring. Use three 6/0 beads to make a beaded head pin and attach it to the jump ring. Attach the jump ring to an ear wire.

Tip: Follow the instructions on the crimp tool package to crimp the crimp beads or tubes.
