Materials needed:

  • 3–4 different colored seed beads, size 11/0

  • Double-cup bead tip

Beaded Seed Bead Bracelet- Tools for the project

Step 1:

Cut a piece of 13–14″ nylon string, thread the needle on and slide it to the center.

Step 5:

When the bracelet is long enough, add the second double-cup bead tip and make a double knot again.

Step 6:

Finish the bracelet by closing the double-cup bead tips and adding all findings and charms. I recommend to use 2–3 strings per clasp — otherwise, the bracelet will look too chunky at the ends. Or if you don’t want to add an extender chain, you can have all bracelets close with their own clasp.

      Dear Mayuri, you can buy all the supplies you need from any good jewellery making supplies store. Just google: where can I buy beads and findings online, and quite a lot of places should come up. I can also personally recommend the stores where I buy my beads and other supplies, such as and
      The first 4 stores that I listed above are the best stores for buying really good products and you’ll find lots of gorgeous seed beads, as well as everything else you need at these websites because they only sell the best products available on the market. Ali Express is very cheap and you can find some great no – brand beads there, but I don’t recommend buying their seed beads because they’re made of plastic, not glass and they look cheap. My favourite place for buying seed beads is as they have the best range of seed beads in the most gorgeous colours. I hope this helps you in your jewellery making. Love from Amanda Jones in Australia
