Making your own jewelry is not only economical but also a creative process. If you've been searching for the perfect bracelet to no avail, perhaps it's time to create your own. Beaducation offers a step-by-step guide for making your very own sleek beaded bracelet.
This particular bracelet requires two stitches: peyote and score stitches. To begin, you need a piece of felt, a tape measure, scissors, needles, pliers and, of course, beads. The beads that work best for this project are delicate sea beads that are more flat than rounded.
To make this design, it takes a bit of time to sew the beads on and a bit of attention to make sure the beads follow the appropriate pattern. Check out the video to see how to secure the beads as well as how to create the clasp.
If you want a more complex design, check out this pattern by Pshiiit. This design is considered more advanced and may be something you want to attempt once you have mastered the beginner bracelet.
If you want a more classic design, check out this idea from Panda Hall Learning Center. Here, you tie in a few pearls or larger beads to offset the smaller beads. Beautiful!
