Simple Bracelet How-To Using Beading Wire

in favorites

Here we'll make a simple bracelet using beading wire and some of our new Czech Glass beads.

Things to keep in mind:
The medium wire used in this video works will with most beads. I really like the 6-8mm beads purely for the aesthetic appeal. This wire is not, however, a good fit for our Pearl selection (the hole is too small!). All the beads featured here fit the bill!

Wire protectors do just that-- protect your wire's durability while the clasp that you attach rubs the wire as you wear your bracelet. These are going to help reinforce the medium wire and smaller. As you string the protector, you may need to spread the two ends further so it gives you more room to give you space for your clasp.

Crimpers have several "settings", use middle portion for initial crimp (creates valley), use end setting to finalize crimp.
