Dreaming of a Pastel Christmas Bracelet


About this design:

For this bracelet, I drew out a geometric pattern, made bead links in the same order, and attached the links to wire. I love these colors together, but this design allows you to create endless color combinations & patterns.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Czech Glass Rounds 4mm (4 different colors)
  • Wire
  • Chain
  • Round Nose Pliers
  • Lobster Clasp
  • Jump Rings
  • Gold Seed Beads

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Draw out your pattern.
Step 2:
With the 22 gauge wire, I made six bead links with 14 beads on each link.
Step 3:
Make 2 more links with the wire and slide on the six bead links with a seed bead in between each.
Step 4:
Attach a piece of wire from one link to the other on both sides of the bracelet to create a wire frame. Wrap a small piece of the 28 gauge wire around the frame and the bead link so they're attached.
Step 5:
Gently bend the bracelet so it curves to fit your wrist. Attach chain to the ends and Finnish with a lobster clasp.
