Vibrant gold and purple iris Toho Demi Round seed beads coexist with faceted violet jade beads in this multi-strand bracelet. Each strand bears a different yet complementary pattern, like a collection
Instructions
These instructions will make a 6 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, adjust the length of each strand of beading wire and the number of beads strung.
  1. Using flush cutters, cut four 10 inch lengths of gold beading wire.
  2. Take one length of beading wire and string one gold crimp bead about 2 inches from one end. Take your wire back through the crimp bead and pull snug, leaving a small loop. Crimp the crimp bead using crimping pliers. Leave the wire tail in place to reinforce the strand.
  3. String 1 inch purple iris 11/0 Toho Demi Round beads, 1/2 inch gold 8/0 Toho Demi Round beads, 2 inches purple jade beads, 1/2 inch gold 8/0 Toho Demi Round beads, and finally 1 inch purple iris 11/0 Toho Demi Round beads. Your beaded strand should measure 5 inches.
  4. String another gold crimp bead and slide it down to the end of your strung beads. Take the wire back through the crimp bead and pull snug. Crimp the crimp bead using crimping pliers. Cut off the excess wire with flush cutters.
  5. Take another length of beading wire and repeat step 2. String 1/2 inch purple iris 11/0 Toho Demi Round beads, followed by 1/4 inch gold 8/0 Toho Demi Round beads. Repeat this pattern until the beaded strand measures 5 inches. Then repeat step 4.
  6. Take another length of beading wire and repeat step 2. String 1/2 inch gold 8/0 Toho Demi Round beads. Then string 1 purple jade bead, followed by 1 gold 8/0 Toho Demi Round bead, and repeat that pattern 3 more times. Repeat this whole pattern until the beaded strand measures 5 inches. Then repeat step 4.
  7. Take another length of beading wire and repeat step 2. String 2 purple iris 11/0 Toho Demi Round beads, followed by 1 gold 8/0 Toho Demi Round bead. Repeat this pattern until the beaded strand measures 5 inches. Then repeat step 4.
  8. Open the loop of an eye pin, the same way you would open a jump ring. Onto it, string the loops on one end of all four of your beaded strands. Close the loop of the eye pin.
  9. String 1 gold TierraCast bead cap onto the straight part of the eye pin, sliding it down so the cone cups the loop of the eye pin that your four beaded strands are dangling from. Make a simple wire loop holding the bead cap snugly in place.
  10. Repeat steps 8-9 to finish the other side of the bracelet.
  11. Open the simple wire loop on one end of the bracelet the same way you would open a jump ring. Slide on the loop of your clasp. Close the loop.
  12. Open the simple wire loop on the other end of the bracelet. Slide on one closed jump ring. Close the loop.
  13. Close the clasp, and enjoy your bracelet!
