About this design:

When I first saw these new Czech Glass oval beads, I knew I wanted to design something with them. The colors are beautiful (especially when the sunlight hits them) and they make it easy to create a stacked bracelet look.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Beading Wire
  • Czech Glass 2-Hole Oval Beads
  • Lobster Clasps
  • Crimp Tubes
  • Gemstones & Seed Beads (see below for the beads I used)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin with a piece of beading wire that's double your desired length. Slide a lobster clasp onto the center of the wire with a bead on each side. Next, slide on the 2-hole oval.
Step 2:
Slide on the beads in the order shown in the picture.
Step 3:
When you've reached your desired length, slide one bead onto both strands.
Step 4:
To finish, make a loop with the wire & slide on a crimp tube.
Step 5:
Trim off the excess wire & attach a lobster clasp.

    Thank you Elaina for this bracelet. I also had 2 different strands of these picked out for a couple of bracelets. I just wasn’t sure what I would put with them but figured there has to be something in my collection to use with them.
