Materials You'll Need
- Beads in your desired colors
- Beading thread
- Beading needle
- Jewelry pliers
Step 1: Cut the Thread
Start by cutting a length of beading thread to the desired length of your bracelet, plus a few extra inches. This will give you enough thread to work with as you add beads and attach the clasp.
Step 2: Add the First Row of Beads
Thread a bead onto the center of your thread, and tie a knot to secure it in place. Then, add two more beads to each side of the center bead
, and tie a knot to secure them. Continue this pattern
until you have added enough beads for the first row of your bracelet.
Step 3: Add the Second Row of Beads
Next, add one bead to each end of the thread, and thread the needle through the last bead of the first row. Add two more beads to each side of the center bead, and tie a knot to secure them. Continue this pattern
until you have added enough beads for the second row of your bracelet.
Step 4: Continue the Pattern
Repeat steps 2 and 3 until your bracelet is the desired length. Make sure to alternate the colors of your beads to create the wave pattern.
Step 5: Add the Clasp
Once you have reached the desired length for your bracelet, tie off the thread and add the clasp using jewelry
pliers. Make sure the clasp is secure before wearing your new beaded waves bracelet.
Making your own beaded bracelet
is a fun and easy DIY project
