This braided style adds some extra glam to these sparkling Czech glass beads. You get great results with minimal components

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Czech glass faceted 8mm melon beads in Matte Peridot AB
  • 18 gauge wire
  • hook or lobster clasp

Recommended tool: wire cutters

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Cut 2ft of wire, fold it in half. Cross the wire to create a loop at the top. Right side should be under the left. Cut a 1.5ft piece of wire, take this piece and wrap the end around the left side of the loop twice. Make sure this wire is behind the loop.

Step

Step 2

Slide a bead onto the main wire pointing to the right. Take the wire that is attached to the loop over the bead.

Step

Step 3

Take the left wire and pull it around the baed to the right side.

Step 4

Always feed the bead onto the main wire that points to the right. Pull the wire behind across the bead

Step

Step 5

Now pull the left wire across. Keep going until you get to your desired length. My total length was 6"

Step

Step 6

To finish take one wire tail and wrap it tightly around once and trim.Then trim off another wire tail.

Step

Step 7

Take your hook or clasp and slide it onto the last wire tail. Wrap the wire around the base of the hook and trim.
