Briolette Beaded Bangle

 

Materials:

  • 8–12 8–20mm top-drilled beads
  • 5–6 10–14mm accent beads
  • 10–12 4–5mm accent beads
  • 3mm round spacers, for each large-hole bead (optional)
  • 3-in. (7.6cm) bangle bracelet with ruffled-loop edge
  • 24–36 in. (61–90cm) 24- or 26-gauge half-hard wire
  • 15–18 2-in. (5cm) head pins
  • 2-in. (5cm) decorative head pins, for each large-hole bead (optional)
  • chainnose and roundnose pliers
  • diagonal wire cutters

 

Instructions:

  1. On your work space, arrange beads around a bangle. The bracelet’s weight should be somewhat balanced, but a symmetrical pattern isn’t necessary.

  2. On a head pin, string an accent bead and make the first half of a wrapped loop. If the accent bead’s hole is large, string a spacer before stringing the accent bead or use a decorative head pin. Repeat with the remaining accent beads.

  3. Cut a 3-in. (7.6cm) piece of wire. String a top-drilled bead and make a set of wraps above it. Make the first half of a wrapped loop above the wraps. If the bead is flat, make the loop perpendicular to the bead. Repeat with the remaining top-drilled beads.

  4. Attach the bead units to the bangle’s loops. There will be more loops than bead units, so cluster the bead units in one-to-five-loop groups, leaving the loops empty in between. Complete the wraps as you attach each bead unit.

Very nice project. I have been making and selling jewelry for years and this would be a project I would recommend to anyone just starting out.its basic, easy and is very pretty. It gives you so many choices in beads too. I may just have to make one of these myself.
