Sep. 16th, 2008 @ 09:36 pm [Tutorial] Crystal Bracelet #8
This bracelet is quite easy and suitable for beginner who want to try something a little harder.

Tutorial : Crystal Bracelet #8
Level : Beginner

No, this is not my design. I saw it at Bead2U, my supplies store. Very lovely and quite easy too.

Equipment :
- Swarovski Bicone Crystal 4 mm. (I use Lt. Peach and Padparadscha)
- Swarovski Bicone Crystal 3 mm. (I use Lt. Rose)
- Swarovski Pearl 6 mm. (Rosaline or Cream?)
- Seed Bead
- Nylon Thread
- O-ring
- Clasp
- Crimp bead
- Bead tip
- Plier


We start with the crimp bead + bead tip, same old style with my previous bracelets. Add three seed beads to each thread and cross the threads at Padparadscha crystal (red arrow).


Add one crystal to each thread and cross them at a crystal (red arrow). Add 3 mm. crystal to each thread and cross them at a seed bead (blue arrow).


Add 3 mm. crystal to each thread (red arrows). Put the threads into the first 4 mm. crystal (blue arrow).


Return the threads to the last 4 mm. crystal (red arrow) by putting them into the 4 mm. crystals at both sides.


Add three Lt. Peach crystals to one thread. One pearl to other thread. Join them at a crystal (red arrow).

Repeat step 2 - 5 to your desired length. When you do step 5, just switch crystals and pearl from the previous block.


Don't forget to add three seed beads when you end the bracelet.

See, this one is easy!

Happy Beading!

thank you beejang for this great tutorial... as always.. your tutorial is really easy to understand. but in my hometown it's too hard to find a bicone. if i'm lucky enough, i'll find a store which sells it, but the option of color just not really appealing.

from all the beading website i like yours the best. thank you for understanding that sometimes without the photoes it will be too hard for us to understand the step. i make my first hair clip from this post...
but i use chinese rondelle instead of bicone.

thanks for your great help... hope for more post in the near future.
sorry for my bad english.

Thank you! I'm so understand your feeling about finding materials. We can't find czech beads in Bangkok and I always used and love czech beads in my projects. lol

Getting started

I m complete beginner here but love it, you said you start with a crimp bead & bead tip! Do you have a video on getting started.
Bit of a cheek but I'm ne if those to start need to see it done to understand it, can you help or suggest where to go.
I tried one loom bracelet for my granddaughter and the clasp came away so hesitant to try again.
Thanks so want to try again.

You can follow this tutorial from step 1 - 3 on how I start with crimp beads and bead tip.

The other way I like to use is the seed beads loop. Similar to this tutorial, step 1 and step 10-11.

Just pick up seven seed beads (or any number you like) and make a circle. Pass through all beads two or three times. Make sure the loop is tight. Then, hang a clasp to the loop using jumpring. Do not use thin jumprings, it won't hold the weight of the bracelet.

Hope it helps.
