DIY – Pink Bead Cuff Bracelet

Recently I’ve been infatuated with cubed beads and have ordered a fair few over the last few weeks. I was hoping these pink beads were actually glass like the post claimed it was, unfortunately I think they are most likely plastic :( – but despite this annoyance I think the project came out quite well and perhaps if more paint scratches off the beads it will give the bracelet a whole different look.

Tools:

  • Chain
  • Wire Cutters
  • Round Nosed Pliers
  • Jewellery wire (18/20 gayge)
  • Jump Rings (optional)
  • End Clasps
  • Beads

Tutorial:

1. Cut Wire to desired width, leaving excess for end closures

Cutting wire to length

2. Create ‘P’ ends on each wire piece

I’ve got another cuff bracelet coming up and I’m hoping to do a few more beads arriving soon in the mail :)

Stay tuned!
