Nugget Bracelet

Nugget Bracelet

Turquoise stones and silver beads give this bracelet from Katie Hacker a unique Southwestern look.

Materials:

  • 18" (45cm) length of .021"(.53mm) diameter bright
  • Beadalon® 19
  • 18" (45cm) length of 20-gauge silver ColourCraft® wire
  • Twelve 20mm turquoise nuggets
  • Round silver beads: four 4mm, sixty 5mm
  • Twenty-two 7mm silver spacers
  • Two silver 1.5mm Crimp Beads
  • Two silver Double-Cup Bead Tips
  • One silver Hook & Eye Clasp
  • Beadstorm™ Chain Nose Pliers
  • Beadstorm™ Round Nose Pliers

Steps:

  1. Cut the ColourCraft® wire in twelve equal pieces. For each piece: Make a loop (see page 3) on one end, string a turquoise nugget and make another loop. Set them aside.
     
  2. Cut the piece of Beadalon® 19 in half. Hold the ends together and use a Crimp Bead to attach the Bead Tip (see page 3). Connect it to half of the clasp.
     
  3. String one 4mm bead and four 5mm beads on each strand. String a turquoise nugget as shown.
     
  4. String one 5mm bead, one 7mm spacer and one 5mm bead on each strand. String another turquoise nugget. Repeat this step until all of the turquoise nuggets are strung.
     
  5. Repeat Step 2 in the reverse order so that the end of the bracelet is symmetrical with the beginning.
