Sweet Sapphire Bracelet

By:

This bracelet from Katie Hacker works well in a variety of color combinations. Try mixing red beads with large black beads or green beads with large purple beads.

 

Materials:

  • 24” length of .015” diameter gold Beadalon 7 beading wire
  • 8 gold #2 Beadalon crimp beads
  • 2 gold #2 Beadalon crimp tubes
  • 5 light blue 12mm wavy oval glass beads
  • 98 mixed blue E beads
  • Gold toggle clasp
  • Beadstorm™ Chain Nose Pliers
  • Designer Flush Cutters
  • Designer Crimper

 

Instructions:

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

 

Tips:

  1. E beads are 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.
