Seed Bead Bracelet Idea

DIY Jewelry Making  Seed Bead BraceletsIt’s the Friday before Mother’s Day and you want to make your mom something nice right?!  We’ve got your back with these seed bead bracelets!  All you need is 1 of our 7″ strands, some seed beads, crimp tubes, beading wire, and a clasp!
Seed Bead Bracelet with Jesse James BeadsCut a piece of being wire 20″ long and thread through one end of the clap.  Position the clasp in the middle.  Add 5 or 6 seed beads to both tails, then slide a bead over both tails.
Where to crimp-DIY bracelet makingWhen it comes to adding seed beads, choose beads that are flat.  String the bead onto only one tail of wire and slide seed beads onto the other tail equal distance of the bead.  Slide the next bead over both tails.  It may take a couple tries to get just the right number of seed beads.  Also, if your seed beads are next to a large holed bead, put a spacer bead on so the seed beads can’t sneak into the large holed bead.

When you come to the end of the bracelet string the seed beads on both tails minus 1 from when you started.  This bead will be replaced with a crimp bead.  String the end of the clasp followed by a crimp bead.  Slide the other tail through the crimp and clasp in the opposite direction.  Remove the slack and crimp.
