For these bracelets, I used the International Morse Code chart to spell out words using seed beads. Spelling out meaningful words or phrases in your designs is always a great gift idea, and I love coming up with fun color combos using the seed beads!

Supplies you’ll need:

Bead cord, chain, microsuede, leather cord, 24 gauge wire, 11/0 seed beads, cord ends, jump rings, lobster clasps, super glue

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Using the 24 gauge wire & seed beads, make a bead link. The bracelet shown in the picture spells out 'peace' in morse code. I used the purple seed beads to represent dots, pink to represent dashes, and I placed a gold seed bead as a spacer in-between each letter (In the additional images above, you'll find a morse code chart with letters and words). For this bracelet, I used leather cord. Slide the end of the microsuede through the loop of the bead link about 1/4". Wrap wire around the two pieces of microsuede to secure. Finish the ends with glue-in cord ends.

See Tip: Wire Wrap a Bead Link

Step

Step 2

Another option is to use beading cord. Begin with your desired length of cord. Slide on the seed beads, tying a double knot on each side to hold them in place. I finished mine with a sliding square knot. The bracelet shown spells out 'hope'. I used orange seed beads for dots, blue for dashes, and a gold spacer in between each letter.

See Tip: Tying the Sliding Square Knot

Step

Step 3

You can also pair the seed beads with chain. Make a bead link & attach to your desired length of chain with jump rings. For this design, I made a necklace by attaching two 6" pieces of chain to each side of the bead link. The necklace spells out 'strength'.
