Lotus Flower Bracelet

About this design:

I love the calming, tranquil vibe the colors in this bracelet give off. For this design, I paired an openwork acetate lotus focal with Czech glass & seed beads.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

Acetate lotus focal, Czech glass, beading wire, crimp tubes, crimp covers, jump rings, lobster clasp, gold 24 gauge wire, super glue, seed beads.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Using the Czech glass & wire, make two bead links attached directly to each side of the lotus focal. Cut two 3" (or your desired length) pieces of beading wire. Attach to the bead link with a crimp tube & crimp cover. Slide on the Czech glass & seed beads & finish by looping the wire through a crimp tube & clamping down. Attach jump rings & lobster clasps to each side. *Optional* I glued a Czech glass bead inside the center of the lotus focal.
