Amethyst Bracelet and Earrings


Materials:

For Necklaces:

  • Beadalon® 19 Strand wire, .018” diameter, bright colore
  • Twenty-three assorted 8-10mm amethyst glass beads
  • Two 2mm silver crimp tubes silver toggle clasp
  • Ten silver head pins
  • Round nose pliers
  • Beadalon Nipper tool

Earrings:

  • Two 8mm amethyst glass beads
  • Two 10-12mm amethyst glass beads
  • Two silver head pins
  • Two silver eye pins
  • Two silver ear wires
  • Beadstrom™ Round Nose pliers
  • Beadalon Nipper tool

Steps:

Tip: For a quick and easy version of this bracelet, simply omit the beaded charms.

Necklaces:

  1. Cut three 12" lengths of Beadalon® 19 Strand wire. Hold the strands together and string a crimp tube 1/2" from the end. String the wire through half of the clasp and back into the crimp tube to form a loop. Use crimping pliers to crimp the crimp tube.
     
  2. On one strand, leave 1/2", then string a glass bead. Wrap the Beadalon® wire around the bead and place the end of the Beadalon® wire back through the same hole to hold it in place. String five beads 1" apart along the length of the strand.
     
  3. Leave 3/4" and 1" on the other strands, then repeat the technique to string four beads 1" apart along the length of the strand.
     
  4. Hold the strands together and string a crimp tube and half of the clasp. Place the strand ends back into the crimp tube to form a loop. Adjust the strands so the bracelet is 7 1/4" long (or the desired length). Use crimping pliers to crimp the crimp tube.
     
  5. String a glass bead onto a head pin. Use round nose pliers to make a loop above the bead. Trim off any excess wire. Make ten beaded pins. Open the loops and attach one beaded pin between every two beads on the bracelet.

Earrings:

  1. Choose two sets of larger matching glass beads and two sets of smaller matching glass beads. String the larger bead onto an eye loop. Use round nose pliers to make a loop above the bead. Trim off any excess wire, then attach the beaded pin to an ear wire. String the smaller glass bead onto a head pin and make a loop above the bead. Trim off any excess wire and attach the smaller bead to the loop below the larger bead. Repeat for the other earring.

I am a February amethyst baby and I also love purple so this bracelet and earring set are just right for me. I am not crazy on the three strings but two or even just the single would be just right. You can play with this tutorial and make it which ever way you think that certain someone would like. Change the beads for other birthday options. Nice easy tutorial.
