DIY Braided Seed Bead Bracelet

After taking inspiration from Honestly WTF, I found a use for my large Miyuki seed beads!

The waxed linen is almost a must as it will make threading and keeping everything in place so much easier.




1. Cut two pieces of thread

2. fold them in half side by side

3. knot the folded end

4. Cut off one strand – there should now be three strands



5. Tape down the top and braid a little way

6. Place a bead on the furthest left strand, place the strand over the middle strand

7. Place a bead on the furthest right strand, place the strand over the middle strand (which was originally the first strand)

8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 until desired length, braid the end



9. Thread two strands through one hole and the remaining strand through the second hole

10. Tie a knot on the other side of the button to secure the end

11. Trim the excess thread

10. DONE!

These are super easy and I find quite find quite fun to make. I absolutely love Miyuki beads too, the colours they come in are just beautiful.

If you like them too, make some! I would love to see your take on this project. Alternatively, if you are not the making type, you can get these from my Etsy store too.

I’m not very knowledgeable about jewelry, nor do I have much interest in it, but I have noticed that they tend to be overpriced and since I love saving money, I decided to try making one of them. I decided upon one that looked neat and sounded easy enough for me to start and finish: Braided Bead Bracelets (tutorials here and here). […]
