Shell Button Bracelets

About this design:

The soft white pearls pair perfectly with the Czech glass spacer beads. I really like this casual elegantance style. Create different patterns or use different colors to personalize a glorious stack of your own.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need 3 strands of Czech glass 2x6mm spacers, pearls, .006" Wildfire thread, 6 crimp tubes, 6 crimp covers, 3 silver hooks, and 3 shell buttons. Recommended tools: Crimping pliers You may need more Czech glass depending on the size of your wrist. The total length of my bracelet is 7 3/4" I measured from button to hook.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  Step 1:
Cut three 12" pieces of thread. Be sure it's enough for you to have extra room, this is a measurement based on my wrist.
Step 2:
Slide the thread through the crimp tube then through the button loop. I went back over the crimp tube and through the tube and button loop again for extra durability. Crimp the tube tight with your pliers. Pop on the crimp cover and close tightly.
Step 3:
Slide the beads on in the order shown.
Step 4:
Repeat Step 2 again but this time you will slide it through the loop of the hook.
Step 5:
Place a crimp cover on and crimp.

    Love these bracelets! The pearls dress them up while the spacers can be casual or dressy! I love jewelry that can be used in both directions.

    Love the stacked spacers. I like how you pulled in the pearls to accent the new shell buttons.

    Love the design! Please note the clasp hook isn’t listed in the products to buy.

    Hi pennyjdavis, thank you! The clasp is listed but it is out of stock so it doesn’t show up on the product list. I added another hook clasp option to the list if you would like to check that out.
    Happy beading!
